Snobs Creek Wines

Victoria | Upper Goulburn

James' Review

In the 1860s, well respected West Indian shoemaker ‘Black' Brookes occupied a cottage at the bridge over Cataract Creek. After he passed away in the late 1880s the creek was renamed Snobs Creek, ‘snob' being an old English term for cobbler (shoe repairer), and the last that shapes the toe end of the shoe. The vineyard is situated where Snobs Creek joins the Goulburn River, 5km below the Lake Eildon wall. The varieties grown are shiraz (2.5ha), sauvignon blanc (1.5ha) and chardonnay (1ha); all manage to produce no more than 7.4 tonnes per hectare. Is described as a ‘cool climate vineyard in a landscaped environment'.
