Last Thursday 7th August marked the first day of this year’s Harvest. This is always happy day for us here, reaping the fruit (literally) of a year of hard work and dedication by all our employees. As usual we start picking our Chardonnay grapes first. The production looks good, so expect many bottles of our Isis Chardonnay 2014 !!!

Please welcome the latest addition to Meridiana’s range of Premium Wines. Made exclusively from raisined Moscato grapes, the golden yellow Baltis has a bouquet of dried figs, sultana raisins, dates, hints of citrus and slightly toasted honey notes. The wine’s luscious palate is exalted by a fresh, crisp finish. The name Baltis recalls the sun goddess worshipped by Phoenician traders around the Mediterranean. Just like all of Meridiana’s other wines, Baltis is made from carefully selected and handpicked locally grown grapes. This sweet wine is to be served slightly chilled, with cheese, with dessert or as a delicious after-meal treat. The first release of Baltis produced just 405 bottles.
