The Producer

Searching for the ideal site to plant a vineyard proved to be a 20 year journey for winemaker Philip Shaw but the final choice came by accident as he flew over the rolling hills of Orange in New South Wales in 1988. Further investigation revealed a wonderful balance of sunshine, soil, differing aspects and of course the high altitude at 900m above sea level that contributes to the unique freshness and concentration in the wines. The 47 hectares of vineyard are on the slopes of the now extinct volcano Mt Canobolas, making it one of the highest vineyards in Australia. Philip Shaw was recently named a Five Star winery in the James Halliday Wine Guide 2018.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"From vineyards at 900-metres altitude in Orange, not far from Sydney, this is such a fresh interpretation of the Rhone Valley’s Viognier grape, with lemon sherbet and a touch of juicy yellow apricot skins onto the palate that bursts with vivacious flavour, a touch of sweetness off-setting a big lemony core of acid. Rather delicious and the low alcohol making it so easy to drink"

The Region

Located approximately 260km west of Sydney on the slopes of the Great Dividing Ranges, the Orange vineyards beginning at around 600m above sea level, rising to 1,100m. The high altitude of the Koomooloo vineyard offers cool ripening conditions and high levels of ultra-violet light which greatly assist in flavour and colour development of the berries and a long cool ripening season with low rainfall.

Chicken and Almonds

This classic French recipe works beautifully with medium-bodied, rich whites which are just off-dry - head for floral, nutty tones in the wines. Head straight for The Dreamer Viognier.

Spicy Fish Braai

Super-simple but very effective, the spicy marinade on barbecued hake combines sweetness, heat and plenty of flavour. Try a tropical-fruited but light white wine, Philip Shaw's Viognier would be a great choice.
