McWilliam’s

New South Wales | Riverina

Our Review

McWilliams went into voluntary administration in 2020 and was purchased by Bill Calabria of Calabria wines. McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant winery and vineyards were bought by Medich Family Office. The exceptional-value offerings of Hanwood Estate in Griffith remain anchors of the brand. Yet McWilliam’s viticultural resources have expanded to include Hilltops, Tumbarumba and Canberra whence wines of considerable detail, cool-climate clarity and exceptional value are crafted under the aegis of chief winemaker, Russell Cody. While the Single Vineyard suite sets the pace, the 660 range is brilliant, defined by a series of wines that are surely among the country’s greatest bargains. The Alternis series, too, as the name implies, is comprised of Mediterranean expressions auguring positively for the brand’s future. Exports to the UK, Canada, Singapore and New Zealand. -NED GOODWIN MW
