Overview

Our finest expression of the Adelaide Hills.

Apex represents Nepenthe’s dedication to regional excellence by providing a unique single clone, single site, single vintage snapshot in every bottle. Underpinned by craftsmanship and provenance, minimal intervention winemaking allows the nuances of site and clonal complexities to be highlighted while maximising varietal purity.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from our Charleston Vineyard, known for producing wines of great depth and elegance. The wine was fermented in small open fermenters for 10 days where it was transferred to both new and old French Hogsheads to mature for 16 months before being clarified and bottled.
