Winburndale Wines, Vineyard, Winery, Australia

2013 Winewise Championship
2009 Winburndale Solitary Shiraz Another runaway group winner, with four first-place votes. It’s classic cool area Australian shiraz, showing fresh blackberry aromas and flavours together with suggestions of black pepper and powdered spices. The fine, firm tannins and beautifully handled oak complete an impressive picture. A landmark wine from Bathurst, NSW. Don’t miss it. ($30.00) Outstanding.”


James Halliday, 2012 Wine Companion
“Solitary Shiraz 2009. Excellent crimson-purple; a very good example of (very) cool grown shiraz reaching full ripeness, with anise, tar and spice woven through the black fruits of the bouquet and palate, the texture close to that of cabernet sauvignon thanks to tannins. Champion Shiraz, National Cool Climate Wine Show ‘10. 94 points.”


Huon Hooke, Good Living, Sydney Morning Herald May 2011
“Solitary Shiraz 2008. From the unlikely source of Bathurst, not far from the recognised wine region of Orange, this is a concentrated, compact and very tidy shiraz. Clean, spicy, walnut and dark-fruit aromas; deep and lively in the mouth with fresh acidity and the structure to age. Now to 2023. 91/100.”


Gourmet Traveller WINE, August 2011
“2008 Fontana Cabernet. David Lowe is consulting winemaker to this vineyard, and some stylish wine are being produced. This has a bright, dark berry aroma laced with peppermint. The flavours are clean, trim and precise. Its vitality suggest it will age gracefully too. 91 points.”


James Halliday, 2010 Wine Companion
“Alluvial Chardonnay 2009. Shiraz may be Winburndale’s flagship wine, but this is better; barrel fermentation in new and one year old French barriques has done no more than support the very attractive cool-grown white peach and nectarine fruit; very good length and balance. 93 points.”


“Solitary Shiraz 2007. Good hue, moderately deep; a spicy, light to medium bodied shiraz that proclaims its cool climate origins; the use of 50% new American and French barriques has been well handled, giving the wine a touch of flavour warmth; good balance and length. 90 points.”


Judges Comments – Australian Small Winemakers Show
