MACEDON RANGES WINE TRADE & PUBLIC TASTING LONGSONG
Macedon Ranges Wine was delighted to invite Australian wine trade representatives to our Trade event. Showcasing 16 wineries and over 50 wines from some of our region’s best, this tasting provided a snapshot of the diversity of producers in this somewhat undiscovered region on Melbourne’s door step.
Date: Tuesday 15 February 2022
Sessions were run in masterclass style fashion so attendees could reacquaint themselves with the wines the region whilst discovering the new and exciting new producers or varieties.
The Macedon Ranges is one of Victoria’s best kept secrets, a wine region of hidden vineyards and passionate producers, only one hour from Melbourne. Macedon Ranges wines are diverse and exceptionally high in quality. With its elevation and wind-chill factor, the Macedon Ranges is the coolest grape-growing region on mainland Australia. This climate allows it to produce high-quality wines but generally only in small volumes. Situated on the Great Dividing Range, elevations range from 400 – 800m, the topography is mountainous and soils are varied - from granite to sandstone/shale. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Syrah predominate plantings, and as such, sparkling wines are common. Other emerging and exciting varieties include Gamay, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Gris and Lagrein.
