Blacklea Vineyard

Wine

Planted in 1996, our 15,000 vines include Shiraz, Cabernet, Semillon and Riesling. All of our vines are drip irrigated and grown on open trellising, exposing the fruit to breezes and sunlight, both important to build the intensity of flavour in the fruit. The vineyard is also blessed with warm sunny days during the ripening season and cool nights which build acid and assist the wines to age gracefully.

We were chuffed last year to win our first Gold Medal – for the 2013 Premium Cabernet Sauvignon. The chief judge was also impressed, commenting “This is how a great Mudgee Cabernet should taste”! It then went on to win the third best Cabernet if the NSW Wine Awards!
