Sutton Grange Winery

Located on the southern edge of the bendigo region, Sutton grange Winery has been widely recognised for its fine wines since it was founded in 1998. An award-winning winery, this vineyard takes a unique approach to production, and the vines are cultivated using organic and biodynamic methods.

Sutton grange is committed to maintaining the maximum health of its fruit and vines, hand-pruning during the year and hand-picking at vintage. Through this process, it is able to produce the best quality fruit and as a result the wines it crafts are of premium quality. once the fruit is picked, all wines are traditionally handcrafted by Sutton grange winemaker, Melanie Chester. Sutton grange is well-known for its rosé, as well as its fantastic Syrah, and prides itself on its experimentation and creative approach to winemaking.

The winery markets under two separate brands, estate and Fairbank. Fairbank, which was the name of the property in the 19th Century, focusses on wines with a fresh, bright and vibrant flavour. in contrast, the estate range reflects the terroir and characteristics of the farm. Also included in the estate range are lesser-known varieties such as Aglianico. both of these labels are readily available at leading restaurants and bottle-preferred wine retail outlets.

With its beautiful grounds, award-winning wines, and breathtaking views, Sutton grange Winery is the perfect venue for functions and other special events such as corporate events and weddings. offering live music, regional tasting platters and free wine-tastings, its Cellar door is also an excellent place to wind-down on a lazy Sunday afternoon.


Tasting Notes

2012 Sutton Grange Estate Syrah

This wine displays aromas of blackberries and plum fruit, with notes of crushed white peppercorn, florals and sweet spices. The palate is lively and bright, with a layered structure and bold tannins, balanced by round, soft fruits in the mid palate. natural acidity and minerality is present here, creating an elegant and refreshing finish.

2015 Sutton Grange Fairbank Viognier

This wine has vibrant aromas of peach and apricot skin, with notes of honeysuckle, grilled nuts and flinty wet stone. A voluptuous and powerful wine with rich fruits, it is followed by great poise and drive through the mid palate. it is a lively and enjoyable wine.

2016 Sutton Grange Fairbank Rosé

described as exciting, complex and delicious, this pale pink rosé presents fresh wild strawberry aromas; smelling sweet and pure. Strawberry is again noted on the palate, carrying a core of deeply textural sweet fruit flavour, finishing crisp, dry and even. it is utterly delicious.

2016 Sutton Grange Fairbank Ancestrale Sparkling Rosé

This wine is very pale in colour, with a slight hue of peach. Featuring aromas of stone fruits, peach and florals, it is very expressive, with some vanillin and nutty characters. The palate is dry and crunchy, with delicate red fruits, pear and pink lady apple peel. The palate finishes dry, with mouth filling weight, tightened by some mid-palate tannin texture.
