for this region?

Mudgee (Aboriginal for “nest in the hills”) is a wine region within the Central Ranges of the state of New South Wales in Australia. It is one of the oldest regions in the country with a history that dates back to the 1850s.

It is mostly hot and dry, but has a relatively late spring, and thus a much later harvest than its neighbor, Hunter Valley. The wines of the region are concentrated, rich and deep, made from Cabernet and Shiraz for reds and Chardonnay, Semillon and Viognier for whites.

  • Cumulus Shiraz Orange Climbing 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I'm not usually a fan of red wines but I've purchased 3 bottles of this stuff now. Very light tasting, semi-sweet, goes great with the expected stuff (example: pasta) but makes a great general drinking wine as well. Read More

  • Climbing Wines Shiraz Orange 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The twist of a screw top reveals a musky aroma of leather, violets and a trace of vanilla on the nose. There is a fruity blueberry and plum taste on the swirl which communicates a definite structure replete with surprisingly stiff tannins. Seductive and smooth, this offering still appears to be young in the bottle with additional cellaring re... Read More

  • Robert Pinot Grigio

    Snoothrank:

    this was the 1st wine at the store tasting. person pouring wine said that it was like a richer style of italian pinot grigio and a lighter version of the typical california style and they were right. the wine was neither crisp and clean, steely and vibrant like Italy nor fruity, fleshy and orange blossom scented like CA. Instead it sat on the f... Read More

  • Rosemount Orange Shiraz 2001

    Snoothrank:

    We drank this 2001 Rosemount Orange Vineyard Shiraz in Dec '09, over a nice steak dinner. It's still pretty fresh with a very white pepper nose. Not a lot of complexity on the finish. S enjoyed it more than I did. Read More

  • Broadfield Stormcrow Cabernet Merlot 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Intense black- red in colour,this cool climate wine has lifted redcurrant and cassis aromas,underpinned with vanillan oak notes.The palate is rich with excellent varietal definition of black fruits and plums and harmonious oak.It possesses fine tannins and produces a dry flavoursome finish.Perfect with just about any red meat dish.

  • Rosemount Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Orange Orange Vineyard 2002

    Snoothrank:

    On first taste, this is really good. Pours a dark purple, dark cherry, blackberry, tar, slight liquorice and a controlled cool spice are the main factors. But after a couple of glasses the complexity seems to get a little lost and starts melding towards mass produced standard Aussie Cab Sav. Maybe letting it breathe is the wrong thing to do as i...

  • Robert Oatley Red Bordeaux Blend Mudgee Cabernet-Merlot 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe, spicy, licorice, leather, char, burnt sugar, vanilla, candied black currant, A touch simple with a smoky/oaky-fruity dichotomy.Soft in the mouth yet it still has a fair amount of acid. Instead of being integrated the acid hangs obtrusively above the fruit. Gentle red fruits on the palate, some nicely ripe tannins, not much complexity nor ... Read More
