Named after the old township of Canonbah, that bordered the McLaughlin’s farm. In the early 1900’s the township was deserted and to this day all that remains is the old Canonbah Bridge. The label depicts a Merino ram – jumping over the bridge – symbolizing the family’s leap of faith from wool to wine. With this premium range the McLaughlin family aims to express the culmination of heritage meeting cutting edge winemaking and quality low yielded fruit. Particular care is taken to maintain the low yielding vines with small berries. This is most evident in the reds which display a fullness of flavour and intensity. Maturation in a combination of French and American oak and the use of Rhone yeasts are further components of the McLaughlin’s aim to express this particular terroir The Canonbah Bridge vineyard covers 80 acres which is surrounded by an eight foot Kangaroo fence; on the family’s 30,000 acre sheep station. It is situated on what was the bend of a river some 2000 years ago. The coarse sandy soils are rich in alluvial deposits and are unique to the remainder of the farm. Over half the vineyard is dedicated to Shiraz which thrives in the semi-desert conditions. Other varietals include Merlot, Grenache, Mourvedre, Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and Tempranillo.
