Our Review

Rhonda and Stephen Doyle are 2 of the pioneers of the Orange district; '24 will mark Bloodwood’s 40th anniversary. The estate vineyards (chardonnay, riesling, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, cabernet franc and malbec) are planted at an elevation of 810–860m, which provides a reliably cool climate. The wines are sold mainly through the cellar door and by an energetic, humorous and informatively run mailing list. Bloodwood has an impressive track record across the full gamut of wine styles, especially riesling; all of the wines have a particular elegance and grace. Very much part of the high-quality reputation of Orange. -JAMES HALLIDAY
