This wonderful Estate is turning out some really impressive red wines which capture
perfectly the dusty, herby, chunky complexity that typifies the Mudgee regional character.
Visitors are made welcome, left to pour their own tasting samples (an excellent
arrangement that makes taking notes a lot more straightforward) and are welcomed to tour
the large barrel room (this hosts a well known classical concert each year).
