Winery Details

    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 Pinot Noir 2018
    “Vince Vaughn did not star in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, that was Johnny Depp. Pinot Noir is sourced from about 1km above the sea, on a vineyard that was planted about 26 years ago, which was roughly the same year as the aforementioned movie.

    It’s just a very good Pinot Noir that’s not trying too hard. I like that. And I like this. Red fruit, hazelnut, some creamy spiced oak, slight earthiness. Medium-bodied, enjoyable purity of fruit, a quiet succulence, fine dusting of tannin, acidity sitting evenly in the wine. Finish is dry and spicy, with a pleasant twigginess and orange peel perfume, and good length. Lovely wine. So nicely done.”
