The Wine: 2017 was a cooler year in the Macedon Ranges and as a result the Lagrein (the flagship wine from this estate) didn’t achieve enough ripeness to be bottled as a single varietal wine. As a result L’Altra was made by blending a little Lagrein into their Syrah. It is full of bright and juicy fruits. Very approachable. The palate is light and refreshing with a high level of drinkability.

Producer Profile

Cobaw Ridge

Cobaw Ridge winery was established in 1985 by Alan and Nelly Cooper. Vines were planted on granitic, sandy soil in the cool climate Macedon Ranges, on the cusp of the Great Dividing Range at some 610m. Their positioning, in a natural amphitheatre, provides the perfect place to produce terroir-driven wines. 100% estate grown, they are now fully certified organic and biodynamic, something they are very proud of, and deservedly so.
