    With Orange being the highest grape growing region in Australia, vineyards here not only enjoy all the benefits of cooler temperatures, and unique topography, but also benefit from over 9 hrs per day of direct sunshine during the growing season. The combination of both the cooler climate and plentiful sunshine, is vital to the fruits ability to ripen flavourwise. And here there's certainly no issue with flavour - notes of red cherry, spice and suntle earthiness. A delicious wine that has class in it's structure - fine, elegant and refreshing, with fine tannin framing the luscious fruit.

    Producer

    In his former life, Simon was a chief winemaker for industry stalwarts like Lindemans Padthaway, Arrowfield and Rouge Homme. These
    days, his attention is focused on crafting small-run, aromatic whites from some of the highest and coolest sites on Oranges' Mount
    Canobolas, one of Australia’s most consistently outstanding rosés, and earthy reds from the warmer climes of Mudgee, in NSW's Central
    Ranges. His son, Will, has returned home to help with winemaking duties and has become a driving force for further innovation,
    experimentation and attention to detail in the winery. A genuinely exciting producer from this beautiful part of NSW.

    From the Borrodell Vineyard, planted about 25 years ago, and sitting up near 1km above sea level.

    Spicy, slightly sappy, red fruit, rosy perfume. Light, crisp, hazelnut and red fruits, clean, pretty and so easy to like, fresh strawberry on the pretty long finish, along with a gentle rasp of tannin to close. Bright and energetic, and so nicely turned out.

    This feels comfortable and at ease. Not showy just offering some lovely red fruits and spice, gentle tannins some give though, it's supple and dangerously drinkable.
