WINERY OF THE MONTH
Ross Hill Wines
The Ross Hill Vineyard is situated on the gentle north facing slopes of Griffin Rd, Orange at an elevation ranging from 750 to 850 metres. Such elevation presents its self in our wines that are so distinctively high altitude and cool climate produce.
Covering the hills with 12 hectares (ha) of established vine we are able to grow the majority of the grapes used in our wines. Ross Hill white wine varieties include Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc, and the iconic red styles of Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Shiraz.
To complement the Ross Hill vineyard was the recent planting in 2008 of 5 more hectares of vine in the fertile volcanic basalt soils at Wallace Lane. With an even higher altitude at 1080 metres above sea level, it is one of the highest and coldest vineyards in Australia. These vines of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir will be ripe for release and drinking in 3 years time which we look forward to presenting to you.
All 17ha of vine are handled with the utmost care by being hand pruned to maintain the exceptional quality and flavour that carry through to our wines. We pride ourselves on our quality not the quantity.
Our environmental policy sees no use of insecticides and reduced irrigation impact by a program of mulching cover crops planted between the rows between autumn and winter.
On a recent weekend to Orange, Ross Hill was the 1st vineyard visited. A Beautiful part of the world to visit. We were shown great country hospitality at the winery and had an extensive tour of their operations. Many wines were sampled, in bottle, tank & barrel . I was very impressed with whole range and have decided to make Ross Hill a winery of the month.
I hope you enjoy the wines as much as I did.
