He also works for Vineyard 29, Quintessa, and Bryant Family. Melka produces the Acre Kayli Morgan Single Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Ancient Way Shiraz and a label called Gold. Gold is a blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, and a small amount of Gewurztraminer. It was not oaked nor did it undergo malolactic fermentation. The bottle contains small flakes of gold. The 2004 Ancient Way Shiraz is a cult wine that is made from old vines in Australia’s Barossa Valley. This vineyard yielded an incredibly low .8 tons per acre. 600 cases of this wine were produced.
Deep garnet, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith jumps with spicy scents of cumin seed, clove oil, cinnamon stick and fenugreek, leading to a core of prunes, blueberry pie and blackcurrant cordial, with touches of iron ore and red roses. The rich, full-bodied palate layers in red fruit nuances with a structure that is wonderfully elegant and ethereal, delivering silken tannins, seamless freshness and a long-lasting firework display for a finish
