Winery Details

    *Available VIC*

    5th and 6th generation winemakers Simon and Will Gilbert are amongst the vanguard of winemakers in NSW leading the evolution towards more contemporary and modern wines.

    Producing wines from their own vineyards in Mudgee, as well as through long-term contracts with vineyards in Orange, Simon and Will make exceptional cool climate wines. High-elevation vineyards, with long sunny days during the growing season result in grapes with exceptional flavour and aroma. With Will taking a more hands-on role in the winery, the style of Gilbert Family Wines has evolved substantially over the past few years, with the winemaking philosophy gearing more and more towards the minimal-intervention approach, and anew range of naturally inclined wines.

Press Review

    Gilbert Chardonnay 6pk 2019
    Hand picked and sorted at harvest. Settled, racked to oak and a concrete egg where ambient fermentation occurred. Partial mlf, matured for 9 months in new and used oak. Plump on attack. Stone fruits, dried hay, nougatine and porcini. I feel that full mlf would have benefitted for textural completion. The acidity, rather fierce. Delicious drinking all the same. This address is on the up.
