We grow the following varieties at our vineyard in Murrumbateman : Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Viognier. We also produce a unique, full-bodied Rosé from our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and blends as the season suit. Only the highest quality fruit is vinified each year and quantities of this fruit are also available for purchase.
All our wines are in the French style. They are full-bodied, fruit-driven and made to accompany your favourite food choices.
Our terroir is perfectly suited to these varieties. At an altitude of 620m above sea-level, our lovingly hand-tended vineyard enjoys the perfect combination of d'uro granite; cold, wet winters; and sunny summer slopes.
There is an entire year's loving care and attention in every bottle of Idyllic Hills Wines.
