Sugarloaf's vineyard slopes towards the east, high on a hill to minimise any potential frost damage. The site is completely dry farmed which means no artificial irrigation takes place, all watering relies on rainfall. The result of dry farm viticulture is that the berries and overall yields are often smaller, intensifying the fruit flavours in the wine. Adrian Munari of Munari Wines in Heathcote is an award winning winemaker producing an impressive range of estate grown wines as well as providing contract wine making services. The fruit grown at Sugarloaf Creek Vineyard is sent to Heathcote where it is slow fermented in open vats and then aged in a combination of new and prior use American oak barrels for twelve months.
Sugarloaf Creek Vineyard is situated within the rolling hills of the Great Dividing Range, on the boundary of three geographical regions, the Goulburn Valley, Upper Goulburn, and Macedon Ranges. The cooloer climes here translate into a long and slow ripening period for the fruit. Established by the Blyth and Hunter families in 1998, the vines have been planted and nurtured to maturity completely by hand. The entire vineyard is planted with Shiraz PT23 vines on their own roots and is a labour of love, maintained by the two families.
A deep, vibrant colour. Flavours of dark berries and spice with a distinctly perfumed nose. This is a rich, full bodied Shiraz made with pure and ripe, beautifully defined varietal fruit expressing wonderful cool climate pepper characteristics.

Sugarloaf Creek is a family owned, cool climate vineyard situated in Victoria's Great Divide, planted entirely to Shiraz

Located in Central Victoria, Sugarloaf Creek Vineyard is situated on the boundary of the three geographical regions of the Upper Goulburn, Goulburn Valley and Macedon Ranges wine regions. The vines are non-irrigated and produce low yields of premium quality fruit. The location of the property ideally provides for cool climate viticulture leading to a long and slow ripening period for the fruit. The aim is to combine best practise viticulture with best practise wine making to consistently produce a Shiraz of outstanding quality that can sit comfortably on the international stage.

 Sugarloaf Creek

The soil is rich black volcanic with red clay deep below that holds onto water through the driest conditions. We therefore employ no artificial means of irrigation relying purely on rainfall and the excellent properties of our terroir. The result of ‘dry farm’ viticulture is that the berries, bunches and overall yields are often smaller intensifying the fruit flavours in the wine.

Established by the Blyth and Hunter families in the 1990’s the vines have been planted and nurtured to maturity by hand. The entire vineyard is planted with Shiraz PT23 vines and is a labour-of-love maintained by the two families. Each vine is carefully pruned, trained, trimmed, thinned and picked by hand to encourage the highest quality fruit possible from the site. The vineyard block slopes towards the east, high on a hill to minimise any potential frost damage.

The property has much history, being home to a vineyard over 100 years ago. Its viticultural rebirth has created multi-award winning Shiraz with each vintage produced. The 1860s homestead is now home to James and Julie Hunter and their young family.
