Expert Reviews

"This a new addition to the Hanwood range which has a reputation for punching well above its weight in terms of quality and pricing. Itfeatures blackberry and plum fruit flavours, integrated chocolate characters, balanced oak and juicy tannins. Drink with barbecued red meats." - (Kerry Skinner, Illwarra Mercury, 25/11/2009)

"Bright crimson colour and sweetish, ripe fruit nose before, a more savoury, medium-bodied palate showing blackberry and herbal notes backed by subtle vanilla oak, the finish balanced and nicely firmed up by some gentle, drying tannins. Excellent value. 13.5 per cent alcohol." - (Graeme Phillips, Sunday Tasmanian 24/1/2010).

Winery Profile

Set in the midst of the unique Australian landscape is the McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery. Established in 1917, the winery stands today as a pillar of winemaking excellence dedicated to creating the very best wines.

In March 2008, following two years of significant investment and expansion, the new McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery was opened.

The multi-million dollar development project saw the creation of a new small winemaking facility, created to handle small, premium parcels, with state-of-the-art equipment as well as new laboratory and winemaking areas, and a brand new office. The expansion allows greater flexibility and opportunities for wine style development and innovation in the region and an ongoing commitment to the Riverina area since its winemaking potential was first discovered by John James McWilliam in 1913, when he established the first winery in the region - McWilliam’s Hanwood Estate.
