The best red wines this winter by McWilliam’s and its new McW range

In winter, we turf the white wines and anything chilled, opting for a more full bodied, warming experience to bunker down and snuggle with in front of the heater as the wind chill outside goes mental.

McWilliam’s wines have some sensational options for doing just that with. Their new range, affectionately entitled the McW range is a contemporary new sub-brand based on the best things about McWilliam’s wines that make them so.

The range stars some great drops like the McW 480 and 660 Reserve series, which is a stunning range, crafted by the benefits of the grapes being grown in  high altitude and cool climate of New South Wales. What is special about these batches is that each bottle bears a name influenced by the altitude at which its grapes were ripened, making each bottle truly unique.

McW 480 offers generous, yet sophisticated wines from NSW high-country, including the Tumbarumba Sauvignon Blanc, Hilltops Shiraz and Tumbarumba Pinot Grigio. Harvested from vines grown at an average of 480 metres above sea level, these cool climate wines are a perfect match to many cuisines.

McW 660 Reserve range is a true expression of the rich diversity and sophistication of high altitude wines, encapsulating modern Australian styles with a medium body. Harvested from vines grown at an average of 660 metres above sea level, the longer growing season allows flavours to develop slowly and to full maturity. The range includes the Tumbarumba Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz and a Canberra Syrah – all medium bodied wines with intense flavour.

“The McW 480 and 660 Reserve ranges personify everything we love about cool climate wine. Pure and elegant, yet intense wines; with great natural balance making them perfect for so many occasions and a wonderful introduction to the character and quality that come from these exciting regions,” said chief winemaker Jim Chatto,

The McWilliam’s McW 480 (RRP$19.00) and 660 Reserve (RRP$28.00) wines are available at Dan Murphy’s, BWS and independent retailers nationally from June 2017.
