    Exactly what a blended, well priced wine should be - wonderfully bright and rich in flavour, gentle and easy to drink with fresh acidity to see it work well with food. Superb red wine here. If you're interested, this deliciously crafted blend is 54% Shiraz, 22% Sangiovese, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Barbera, 6% Pinot Noir and 4% Tempranillo from both Orange and Mudgee, NSW. Gilbert is fast becoming a star in NSW for people surching for flavour and value.

    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.

    Fifth generation winemaker Simon Gilbert at his Mudgee winery.

    Rouge comprises of shiraz 54% sangiovese, 22% petit verdot, 8% barbera, 6% pinot noir, 6% tempranillo 4%. The fruit is growin in Mudgee and Orange but maybe the makeup doesn't matter, it's just a nifty drink. Spicy, soft red fruits, medium-bodied, very savoury and juicy with lovely tannins.

    Brambly, bright, floral, hazelnut. Juicy, mixed dark berries, nutty, a bit of grit and grain from the tannin, fresh and lively, would be superb with a sausage sandwich. Excellent ease of drinking with a bit of a difference.
