Our Review

Peter Robertson pioneered viticulture in the Young area when he planted vines in 1969 as part of a diversification program for his 400ha grazing property. When McWilliam's acquired Barwang in '89, the vineyard amounted to 13ha; today the plantings are 100ha. The label also takes in 100% Tumbarumba wines, as well as Hilltops/Tumbarumba blends. The property and surrounding vineyards were sold to neighbouring farmers Wendy and James Bowman at the end of '21. -JAMES HALLIDAY
