2014 Season


The recent heat wave has provided challenging conditions for the vines but fortunately, judicious use of drip irrigation has meant that they are coping well. The fruit is looking good at this stage and things are on track for another good vintage in 2014.


Winewise Championship


We are pleased to report that we have been invited to submit two of our wines for the upcoming prestigious Winewise Championship for gold medal winning wines. The aim of the event organisers is to have a prestige wine event that truly showcases Australia’s finest wines.  Judges for the event include James Halliday and other senior judges from within the wine industry. The McKellar Ridge 2008 Shiraz Viognier and 2013 Riesling have been selected. Judging will take place in late February and we will let you know the results when they become available.
