We love a great drop here at Rogue Homme and we put the hard yards in ( someone has to lol ) to bring the latest and greatest, and McWilliam’s Wines recently launched a new range of wines called the McW range, a contemporary new sub brand based on the integral relationship between the land, the climate and the winemaker. Ok don’t worry about all that crap basically it’s bloody good and you need to try it…
The range features the McW 480 and 660 Reserve series, showcasing the elegance and intensity of high altitude, cool climate regions of New South Wales. Each product is named after the respective altitude that the grapes are ripened at, shaping the taste profile of every wine to create character and quality.
McW 480 offers generous, yet sophisticated wines from NSW high-country, including the Tumbarumba Sauvignon Blanc, Hilltops Shiraz and Tumbarumba Pinot Grigio. Harvested from vines grown at an average of 480 metres above sea level, these cool climate wines are a perfect match to many cuisines.
McW 660 Reserve range is a true expression of the rich diversity and sophistication of high altitude wines, encapsulating modern Australian styles with a medium body. Harvested from vines grown at an average of 660 metres above sea level, the longer growing season allows flavours to develop slowly and to full maturity. The range includes the Tumbarumba Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz and a Canberra Syrah – all medium bodied wines with intense flavor.
According to Chief Winemaker, Jim Chatto, “The McW 480 and 660 Reserve ranges personify everything we love about cool climate wine. Pure and elegant, yet intense wines; with great natural balance making them perfect for so many occasions and a wonderful introduction to the character and quality that come from these exciting regions.”
The McWilliam’s McW 480 (RRP$19.00) and 660 Reserve (RRP$28.00) wines are available at Dan Murphy’s, BWS and independent retailers nationally.
