Just released, the Halliday Wine Companion has recognised Rowlee as an "outstanding winery capable of producing wines of very high quality, and did so this year". Standout wines include the 2016 Rowlee Single Vineyard Chardonnay (97 points) and the 2016 R Series Nebbiolo (94 points).
“One of the finds of the year. An outstanding chardonnay. As much power as finesse. Grapefruit, white peach, custard and apple and flint, a hum of cedar-spice oak only serving to amplify what is a gorgeous expression of the variety. The deal is completely sealed on the finish. A wow-ee wine from Rowlee, you might say. Deserved trophy winner at the Orange Wine Show."
Rowlee now offers its own on-site accommodation with same the impeccable attention to detail as its wines. A private, luxury guesthouse set within the estate. Comfy yet sophisticated and perfect for couples.
Our guesthouse includes a master bedroom, large ensuite with freestanding stone bathtub and walk in shower, spacious dining and lounge, complete with log burner and a fully equipped kitchen.
The perfect place to enjoy a night or three away from the city, surrounded by vineyards, heritage gardens and the natural beauty of the high country of Orange.
The Real Review Certificate of Excellence is awarded to a select group of wineries that consistently produce excellent wine. Rowlee is delighted to be recognised amongst the Top Wineries of Australia in 2018.
With over 300 entered, this regional show is open to wines made with grapes grown in the Orange Wine Region. This makes the Orange Wine Show a true regional show and a great benchmarking opportunity for producers and region alike.
