Stockman's Ridge Wines

New South Wales | Orange

Our Review

Stockman’s Ridge is a handy operation in Orange, providing a swag of well-crafted wines from the usual cadre of varieties. The dark horses are the grüner veltliner and zinfandel, grown at circa 800m elevation. The ‘groovy grüner’ (as American sommeliers called it in the late ’90s when its fashionability rose to a crescendo) is pungent and fresh, an easy hop, skip and a jump for riesling drinkers. Live music happens on weekends and accommodation is available at the onsite Swagman Homestead. -NED GOODWIN MW
