I love a barrel fermented Sauvignon, especially one that's varietal, fresh, but soft and complicated at the same time. This is perhaps my favourite in the region.

Elegant style with bright varietal characteristics, including spice, black fruits and a gentle texture. Very Orange!

Wine of the Week: Swinging Bridge 2012 Mrs Payten Chardonnay.  For mine, sweet cashew nut, citrus, melon and yellow peach. Orange Chardonnay at its best.

2013 “PG” Pinot Gris - Charles Sturt Wines  Bright aromas of candied fruits, while still being soft and fresh on the palate. By far the best Gris style I've tasted from Orange yet!

Dark fruits, violets, tobacco and spice. A sexy wine. I love a good Orange Cab Franc.

Bloodwood Wine : 2009 Cabernet Franc/Malbec. I love Cab Franc blends from Orange, can't get enough of them and this is probably my fave. Dusty raspberries, red cherry, tobacco & that's on my first taste. Cabernet Franc, I reckon it's a regional dark horse.

2012  Swinging Bridge 'M.A.W.' Pinot Noir. My favourite in the region. Truffles, mushrooms, red cherry and spice. Still a young bub also!

Philip Shaw Wines - "The dream started long before the acquisition of Koomooloo (vineyard site) in 1988. Philip spent years investigating and exploring many regions within Australia until by accident Philip noticed the undulating roll of the countryside when flying over the Orange region. After a few days of intense research into this highland area he returned the next week to find the region had a near-perfect balance of elevation and sunshine."
