The spectacular throughbred country of Strathbogie Ranges is a landscape of rocky mountain outcrops, forests and waterfalls. The cool, high altitude region is recognised for wines of perfume, elegance and aromatic lift. Soft, more generous styles originate from warmer sites on the lower slopes. Shiraz makes standout wines with vibrant fruit and spicy flavour. Pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon are also significant. White wines include crisp chardonnay, herbaceous sauvignon blanc and riesling.
