The Sutton Grange Estate Syrah is the purest expression of the property.
Tight, graphite tannins typical for Shiraz on granite.
Lifted, intense purple fruits and wild berries on the nose, with spice notes of aniseed, cinnamon and nutmeg. The wine is concentrated and robust, and yet elegant, with blackberry fruit and layered tannin. The palate finishes with dark, gravel like tannins and core of graphite.

About Sutton Grange.
Sutton Grange is located on the southern edge of the Bendigo region, and for many years was known for its thoroughbred racing facility. Since planting of the vineyards in 1998 it is now recognised for the wines it produces. The Sutton Grange vineyard is cultivated using organic methods, and the wines are traditionally handcrafted by winemaker Melanie Chester. The wines combine distinctive style and interpretation with our organically grown estate fruit creating wines that express the uniqueness and characteristics of the site. Producing two labels, Fairbank – the original name of the property in the 19th Century, and our Estate range. Wines under the Fairbank label are crafted to be approachable, fresh and fruit driven. The Estate wines strongly demonstrate the terroir and characteristics of the farm, also included in the range are some less known varieties such as Aglianico.
Bendigo wine region.
The tradition of wine grape growing in the Bendigo region is nearly as old as Bendigo itself. Bendigo is situated in central Victoria and has a Mediterranean climate, with dry summers and wet winters. The first grapes were planted in the Bendigo region in 1856, just after the start of the Gold Rush which brought tens of thousands of hopeful diggers from all over the world to seek their fortunes.
Bendigo’s first vignerons were Jacques Bladier and a German named Delscher, both of whom planted vineyards at Epsom about 1855, and Jean-Baptiste Loridan.
The main red varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, are both well suited to the region with winemakers producing long-lived wines from both styles. Bendigo is also one of Victoria’s most elegant cities, with a vibrant mix of sidewalk cafes, art galleries, antique stores, stunning gold rush architecture and century-old gardens.
