Hamlat Vineyard, NSW 56 Clairvaux Lane, Kelso NSW 2795
Hamlat Vineyard features cool climate grapes were grown at 740 metres above sea level 15kms east of the city of Bathurst NSW. Vintage was in late April allowing for a prolonged ripening period. The use of old and new oak integrate well but do not over power the fruit.

Mount Panorama Estate Vineyard, NSW 151 Mountain Straight, Mount Panorama NSW 2795
Located in the heart of the iconic race circuit is Mount Panorama Estate. Our sixteen acre property not only boasts a great display of cool climate vines, but also the views overlooking Bathurst and the Blue Mountains. Since purchasing the property in 2010, we have combined the beauty of our location and the art of making amazing wines with the assistance of the best winemakers in the Central Western region. Mount Panorama Estate Vineyard is the home of Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Semillon grape varieties. Our original vines were planted around 1999 and have been the foundation of many great wines since. Since 2010, our talented winemaker, Mark Renzaglia, has nurtured the vines to accomplish the immaculate cool-climate fruit which is then transformed into well prepared and enticing beverages.
Renzaglia Wines, NSW 38 Bosworth Falls, O’Connell NSW 2795
In we planted a hectare of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. We made our first wines in 2001 mainly as a hobby while I was working full-time as viticulturist/winemaker for Winburndale Wines. The hobby has grown to the point where Renzaglia Wines is now my sole occupation along with vineyard consulting and contract wine making. The Bathurst region is ‘on the edge’ when it comes to suitability for growing grapes. This is mainly due to its water limitations and frost risk in late spring. However, with good site selection and proper selection of grape variety, the fact that we are ‘on the edge’ is what helps us to produce wines with good balance between acidity and ripeness. We are a cool climate region but we are warm enough to be able to ripen many reds successfully. Also, most of the soils in the area are granite based and/or old, ancient and infertile. This also helps to give our wines a special character and interest.

Winburndale, NSW 116 Saint Anthony`s Creek Road, Bathurst NSW 2795
Winburndale is covered in the remnants of old gold mines. And there is a great affinity between gold and quality wine. It has to do with ancient alluvial soils in shallow layers on the hillsides. These soils are less fertile and the vines are thus less vigorous. Winburndale Wines Vineyard Warm days and cool nights in summer and autumn produce a long ripening period. This leads to true physiologica...
