Orange (est 1997)
Our Carillion Vineyard is located on the Volcanic slopes of Mt Canobolas and personifies the hype for cool climate wines coming out of the Orange region. The key to this area is the cool to cold climate and high altitude, meaning we are able to enjoy an extended growing season with plentiful sunlight hours.
Red/brown volcanic clay loams on light-medium clays provide the base for growing premium Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in the whites, with the focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Pinot Noir in the reds. Recent plantings of cult Italian varieties, Verduzzo and Aglianico are showing great results, making unique and intriguing wines.
