Sutton Grange

Sutton Grange

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 Winery is committed to maintaining the maximum health of its fruit and vines, hand-pruning during the year and handpicking 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 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, focuses 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

2018 Fairbank Rosé
2018 Fairbank Rosé

Pale salmon in colour, this rosé carries perfumed aromas of strawberry and blood orange, with savoury notes of fennel frond and thyme. Notes of cranberries, spice and full fruitiness in the mid-palate combine with a long, dry mineral drive. Savoury and crisp to finish, this is a quintessential Australian dry rosé.

2018 Fairbank Field Blend
2018 Fairbank Field Blend

In this blend, punchy aromatics of mandarin, orange oil and white peach pair with fragrant notes of ginger and jasmine spice. The mid-palate exhibits flavours of lemon butter, while the finish is vibrant and crunchy from the bright, natural acidity and chalky phenolics.

2016 Sutton Grange Estate Fiano
2016 Sutton Grange Estate Fiano

This wine presents aromas of spiced quince, grapefruit and lemongrass, with exotic lifted spices on the nose. With flavours of grapefruit pith and lemon curd on the palate, complex notes of flint, vanilla bean and creamy wild honey make this a truly special wine that finishes with a bright acid line that is balanced by a tight mineral texture.

2016 Sutton Grange Estate Syrah
2016 Sutton Grange Estate Syrah

Red fruit aromas of raspberry, satsuma plum, cassis and dark blueberry are balanced by spicy aromatics of fennel seed and nutmeg in this syrah. The palate remains fleshy and vibrant with flavours of fresh blueberry, raspberry and warm, ripe spices. A wine of clarity and complexity, this red has a rich, deep core with dark chocolate tannins that roll through the palate and finish with a velvety texture.
