Award-winning winemaker Philip Shaw produces this delicious Pinot Noir from high altitude vineyards in Orange, New South Wales. You'll find a richly aromatic style, full of ripe summer pudding fruit laced with powdery tannins, savoury and more exotic spice.

Buy this if...you want light body, full on flavour.

‘A resounding success, there's elegance and delicacy aplenty here. A must-try, surprise package from Philip Shaw's elevated Koomooloo vineyard.’

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.

The Winemaker

Two-time winner of the International Wine Challenge Winemaker of the Year Award, this is Philip Shaw's solo venture after decades of premium winemaking in Australia. Tellingly, he waited nearly 20 years for the vineyard to reach full maturity before attempting to produce wines to sell and believes that the final wine is a marriage between the vineyard and the winemaking - not refining it, but getting it right first time.

The Region

Located approximately 260km west of Sydney on the slopes of the Great Dividing Ranges, the Orange vineyards beging 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.

Charcuterie Board

Cured meats match perfectly with light reds with a hint of sweetness, with the fresh, juicy fruit in the wine contrasting with the smoked/salty flavours in the meats.

Veal with Creamy Mushrooms and Cavolo Nero

Veal can pair well with soft, light reds or structured whites - try a silky Pinot Noir with savoury notes to complement the delicate meat.

Wild Mushroom and Lentil Salad

An easy to prepare mid-week supper on its own or as a side-dish with meat, this warm salad has plenty of gusty flavours which need a supple, silky red with soft tannins.
