The Sutton Grange creed has always been to act and make decisions based on “the best interest of the farm”. Winemaking is no different. Melanie Chester, the young and dynamic chief winemaker leads the team to create wines that are the best expression of the Sutton Grange farm, pushing the boundaries of the property. They market under two ranges, Fairbank and Estate wines. Fairbank, the name of the property in the 1800s, contains a portfolio of wines with freshness, brightness, and vibrancy. The Estate range reflect outstanding Central Victorian wines including a collection of lesser known varieties that allow its portfolio to create wines that reflect its motto to “Stand Alone”.
It has a deep red in colour with hues of purple and blue. The nose is lifted with notes of blueberry and wild fruits, with spicy notes of aniseed, dried herbs and nutmeg. The palate is plush and juicy, with delicate powdery tannins and bright acidity framing the palate.
This wine is perfect wine to share with friends.
