OUR WINES

WW_WIne Tile_Shiraz

SHIRAZ 2014

 

With a pedigree of 40 years our Shiraz has always been rewarding: rich, plum fruit backed up by long smooth tannins and plentiful oak. Over the years this has been our most awarded wine.

WW_WIne Tile_Chardonnay

CHARDONNAY 2015

 

A flinty, funky, cereal nose leads itself into a rich mouth-filling honeysuckle palate. The wine is a reflection of the wild yeast fermentation, and naturally high fruit quality.

WW_WIne Tile_Memsie

MEMSIE SHIRAZ 2013

 

Named after the nearby historic Memsie Estate, established in 1839 on the banks of the Loddon River. Limestones in the subsoil there give this wine forward, easy to reach fruit, a classic Central Victorian Shiraz. Serve slightly chilled in summer, perfect for a BBQ or picnic.

 

WW_WIne Tile_Suav Blanc

SAUVIGNON BLANC 2015

 

This wine has exciting aromatics of pineapple and lime leaves. The rounded palate of the wine is refreshing and bright, full of grapefruit and citrus zest.

WW_WIne Tile_Cab Sauv

CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014

 

Green beans, asparagus and stewed rhubarb; this wine leaves you in no doubt of its variety. A rich balanced wine of herbaciousness and dark berries.

WW_WIne Tile_Baringhup

BARINGHUP SHIRAZ 2013

 

We now have a vineyard 40km south of the winery near Maldon. Still beside the Loddon River, the soils here are rich in red clay and the climate a little cooler. Early results have given us just what we’re looking for: a wine that is a little more elegant with more berry than plum fruit. This one’s a keeper.

Located only 20 minutes north of Bendigo, Water Wheel has a reputation for creating some of the most exciting wines of the region.

 

Most years we produce some odd wines such as Petit Verdot, Malbec or Primitovo. Please feel free to contact us to find out what we have available.
