Miles Mossop Wines burst onto the scene in 2004 when the first wines were made: Max 2004 and Sakia 2004. Max is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and more recently Malbec, and Saskia, a blend of Chenin blanc, Viognier and more recently Clairette blanche. Later, in 2009, a third wine was introduced, the Kika 2009, a botrytised wine made in the Noble Late Harvest style from 100% Chenin blanc.
It is a family business with Miles Mossop (winemaker at Tokara winery) as winemaker and viticulturist. The wines are named after Miles and Samantha Mossop's three children, Saskia-Jo, Maximilian and Kika. Production is limited to 1,000 nine liter cases which results in approximately 475 cases of Max, 475 cases of Sakia and 50 cases of Kika.
We aim to achieve wines with finesse and elegance but still showing aspects of power and fruit concentration, having great texture while maintaining balance. These are truly handcrafted wines showing pure fruit expression and, more importantly, a sense of place.
