Kyneton Ridge Estate
Kyneton Ridge Estate
These beautiful vines that enrich the Macedon landscape were planted twenty-five years ago. The estate has been owned by Angela and Andrew Wood since 2019, where they have expanded and upgraded the vineyard, winemaking and café facilities. Situated among the rolling hills of the Macedon Ranges, Kyneton Ridge Estate is located just one hour northwest of Melbourne.
Established in the 1990s, Kyneton Ridge Estate has a tradition of making fine pinot noir, chardonnay, shiraz and sparkling wine. With a strong focus on vine health through applying regenerative agriculture principles, new plantings and innovative wine making, the winery aims to respect and build upon this beautiful tradition.
Producing 12,000 bottles a year, the winery specialises in creating delicious pinot noir, chardonnay and sparkling pinot chardonnay. Having won Winery of the Year at the Daylesford wine show in 2016, Kyneton Ridge Estate is a magnificent estate that suits all palates.
The winery offers exquisite wine tastings at its cellar door and has its very own on-site café – Ridge Café, where guests can treat themselves to its contemporary and seasonal menu designed to complement the winery’s fine table wines. Guest facilities at Kyneton Ridge Estate have recently undergone major renovations to provide a contemporary but casual café dining and cellar door experience. The addition of an art space within the café has provided the opportunity for emerging and established artists to showcase their work. Bounded by Blackhill Reserve, the space presents an array of native wildlife, including the daily migration of the kangaroo mob.
As well as benefitting the local community, Kyneton Ridge Estate is continuously expanding its vineyard. With four hectares currently under vine, with the addition of a further two hectares being planted in 2023, the Woods and Kyneton Ridge Estate are excited to see what the future holds.
⇐ 2022 Cabernet Shiraz
This delicious red wine is made up of the perfect blend of Macedon cabernet with Heathcote shiraz. Not too heavy or not too light, this blend goes great with food. Rich and fruitful in taste, this red wine has been matured in twenty-five percent new French oak to ensure that vibrant and smooth flavour.
⇐ 2021 Shiraz Heathcote
The aroma that oozes from this bottle is lifted and vibrant, with notes of vanilla infused stewed plums. Its rich black forest cherry flavours provide a unique intensity while the balanced acid and tannin structure leads to a brightness on the palate. This classic Kyneton Ridge Estate wine pairs perfectly with a roast beef or lamb or to enjoy in front of the fire with a delicious cheese platter.
⇐ 2021 Pinot Noir Reserve
Kyneton Ridge’s estate-grown pinot noir has benefited immensely from careful oak selection. This exquisite red wine will only improve with age. Its brooding, earthy and dark red fruity tones entice you into a wine that is soft, fresh and savoury backed by tasteful plums and cherries.
⇐ 2022 Pinot Noir Skipping Rabbit
This light, easy drinking pinot noir is an estate grown treasure. A soft crunchy and fresh wine, this red
emanates hints of raspberries and blood orange refined acid and soft tannins. Perfect served chilled, this pinot noir’s nose boasts a current and blackberry flavour along with a hint of brown sugar.
