Winery Details

    Established in 1998, a small estate with an original vision as a Thoroughbred facility. In time, a small vineyard was added, farmed organically, with a view to crafting savoury, complex, “bistro style” wines. Pioneers of styles so common now, like their cult-following pale rosé, they are quality driven and highly acclaimed. The vineyard and winery operations are led by Melanie Chester, a star in the making. She joined Sutton Grange by way of Seppelt, so has a very strong hand for central Victorian wines, and has quickly made a mark in the industry through the Young Gun of Wine Awards.

Press Review

    Sutton Grange Aglianico 2018

    Oldest aglianico vines in Australia. 2004 planted.

    Serious character within a fruit-filled context. Dry tannin steers boysenberry, red licorice, coal and sweet herb flavours along. Sweet-fruited upfront; dry and tannic to close. Allow it to breathe and it extends impressively through the finish.

    Sutton Grange Aglianico 2018

    I like this. Very attractively cast, blue florals and blueberries, as well as damson notes. The palate has a very vivid, composed and athletic feel with powerful yet fine tannins, carrying a gently spicy vein of blue-fruit flavors. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

    Sutton Grange Aglianico 2018

    Aglianico lives up to its reputation as Italy's ‘Barolo of the south', even a long way from its southern Italian roots. The grape's distinctive tannin and acid presence is keenly felt here, but the ripe Bendigo fruit is up to the task. Deep purple intensity. Black cherry, blackberry and back-strap licorice lead the bouquet. An enticing start to a wine that combines an Italian sensibility - sinewy tannins, sour cherry savouriness - with a rush of sweet raspberry chocolate-ripple fruit. Deep with a rustic edge.
