The wines of Tortoise Creek included many of the principal varietals grown in the region, such as Syrah and Viognier, as well as relative newcomers, Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The key to any good wine, whether it is from the Languedoc, California or Australia is "low yields". Each of the wines in the Tortoise Creek line is hand selected and blended from top growers in the region that understand this philosophy. All of the white wines are unoaked and the red wines are unfiltered to get the most extract and purest varietal flavors. As a result, the wines truly over deliver for the price, garnering many 'Best Buy' and 'Best Value' ratings from the top US publications. Each wine is sealed with a stelvin closure, giving it a 'new world' and fresh look.
