Shaw Vineyard Estate is a Boutique Winery established in 1998 on "Olleyville", a 700 acre fine wool producing property established in the mid 1800's. This historic property is located in Murrumbateman along the Barton Highway between Canberra and Yass.
Shaw Vineyard Estate is a family owned and operated business, producing a full range of top quality estate grown fruit has enabled Shaw Vineyard Estate to consistently make superb quality wines year after year. Located in a prime position within what is described as a cool climate region at an elevation of around 640 metres, the Estate is quite unique in that several of the sites with appropriately sloping aspects, and superb soils, have microclimates perfectly suiting the production of outstanding Cabernet.
In fact, the property with around 85 acres under vines including Riesling, Semillon, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, provides Shaw wines with its entire production, and can lay claim to the fact that they produce 100% Estate grown wines. In just a few short years, Shaw Vineyard Estate wines have already been recognised with 10 trophies and a swag of gold, silver and bronze medals from various Australian and International wine shows.
STAR WINES - The Estate has the capacity to produce 25,000 cases from this prime vineyard, and the wines are marketed internationally under its three core labels each with a reference to the unique star formation that rises above Australia – the Southern Cross; Reserve, Estate Range and Winemakers Selection.
