Review by: Shadowfax
Established in 1998, Shadowfax is a boutique winery located 30 minutes from Melbourne, in the heart of Werribee Park. Dedicated to creating quality, handcrafted wines that express the characteristics of the vineyards in which they were grown, Shadowfax produces 11,000 cases of premium wines each year. Renowned varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz as well as a selection of highly limited, single-vineyard wines.
Shadowfax's winemaker, Matt Harrop has a strong focus on regionality with the majority of fruit sourced and hand-harvested from vineyards from the vineyard at Werribee and small growers in the Adelaide Hills, Macedon and Geelong. Each and every vineyard has its own distinct characteristics and produces grapes of only the highest quality.
Contemporary in design and function, Shadowfax's unique architecture reflects an attempt to create a harmony between the winery and its natural surroundings. Shadowfax's rusted sheet metal exterior, and its terra cotta interior, evoke the best of our Australian wine heritage. Yet the Winery is a state-of-the art development, and none of the meticulous processes that are required for the making of fine wines have been overlooked.
