Critic Scores & reviews
"It's fabulously fruited and fragrant with green rockmelon, fresh fig and lime zest aromas, leading to a succulent palate with fine texture and vibrant mouthfeel. Upfront and intensely expressed with delectable fruit flavours. At its best: now to 2025."
"The bouquet has lifted citrus, melon and tropical fruit aromas that are complex and interesting. On the palate it is complex, clean and crisp with a great balance of fruit and acid. The finish is tight clean and long. Enjoy now or over the next 3 years"

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.
Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.
Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.
With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.
New South Wales
New South Wales, is a wine-lover's paradise with 14 official wine regions that cater to every palate. The region boasts Australia's oldest wine-producing area, the Hunter Valley, as well as newer and exciting cool climate regions like Orange, the Southern Highlands, and Tumbarumba. With its status as the second-largest wine-producing state in Australia, New South Wales attracts wine enthusiasts from around the world. However, despite its production, the region's wine consumption far outpaces its output due to its high population.
In addition to its diverse range of wine regions, New South Wales is also known for its excellent food and wine events. The Hunter Valley, for example, is home to the famous Hunter Valley Food and Wine Festival, which attracts thousands of visitors each year. The festival features tastings, cooking demonstrations, live music, and other activities that showcase the region's local produce and wines.
Furthermore, the New South Wales wine industry is committed to sustainable practices and environmentally-friendly production. Many wineries in the state are certified organic or biodynamic, and there is a growing trend towards low-intervention winemaking. This means that the wines produced in New South Wales not only taste great but are also produced in an ethical and environmentally conscious way.
Other regions within New South Wales, such as the Canberra District, Cowra, Gundagai, Hastings River, Hilltops, Mudgee, New England, Perricoota, Riverina, and the Shoalhaven Coast, produce some of the finest Australian wines, making New South Wales a must-visit destination for wine connoisseurs.
Situated on the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, surrounding the town of Tumbarumba, this wine region ranges from 300-800 meters in altitude. With the first vineyards planted in 1982 this appellation is more-or-less evenly split between red and white varietals. Tumbarumba's signature wines are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for sparkling and table wines. In recent years, the newer plantings include Merlot, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Shiraz and Viognier. The latter varieties helped by the warm dry seasons experienced in the region. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir make up around 80% of the total plantings. The region is reputed as New South Wales’ coolest climate grape-growing appellation with the majority of grapes produced in the region sold onto the major wine companies. Small parcels of fruit do stay in the area with a select number of growers producing under their own labels.
