Box Grove Vineyard

Victoria | Nagambie Lakes

James' Review

This is the venture of the Gough family, with industry veteran (and daughter) Sarah Gough managing the vineyard, winemaking and marketing. Having started with 10ha each of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon under contract to Brown Brothers, Sarah decided to switch the focus of the business to what could loosely be called ‘Mediterranean varieties'. These days prosecco, vermentino, primitivo and roussanne are the main varieties, plus shiraz and cabernet sauvignon from the original plantings. Osteria (an Italian word meaning a place that serves wine and food) holds tastings and meals prepared by visiting Melbourne chefs by appointment. Exports to Singapore and China.

About

It is my philosophy in both the vineyard and winery to tread as lightly as we can. In the vineyard we make our own compost to improve soil structure and work with the vines natural growth habits to create canopies for shade and air flow, to avoid the use of sprays and chemicals. And in the winery we aim for minimal handling wherever possible, letting the fruit and the flavours of the Tabilk 'terroir' shine through. I have made my speciality the Rhone varietals—shiraz, roussanne and viognier. These have found a second home here in Tabilk, in central Victoria, having been grown amongst the tall river red gums for over 100 years. In recent years I have added the Italian varietals prosecco, vermentino and primitivo. These are also suited to our warm and sunny summers, and make delicious food-friendly wines—crisp and moreish sparkling wines, deeply flavoured whites and generous and elegant red wines. Above all, the wines I make are designed to be enjoyed with food and shared with friends.
