Buxton Ridge

Marysville, Victoria

We were very pleased to be approached by a Wine Club Member to look at the wines from Buxton Ridge.The winery is of course very close to Marysville and to the quite appalling events that we are all very aware of and to then talk first hand to Michael one of the Owners and the wine maker just brought home again the truly dreadful scenes that so many faced as they watched a fire roar towards them.

 

The vineyard makes a Pinot, a Merlot, a Shiraz, a Sauvignon Blanc and a Sparkling Pinot ( blanc style ) and we are very pleased to be able to offer them to you not just for a " good cause " but also because they are very nice wines indeed.

Their main Customers were of course the many outlets in Marysville that so many of us can remember but now those outlets are no more. Because of the close camaraderie that exists in this industry many of us have now become stockists and we really fo encourage you to call in to sample and then buy these wines.

The Pinot is a typical mushroom forest floor wine and then the Merlot and the Shiraz reflect the cool climate of the area.

Our choice of wine is the very fine Sauvignon Blanc but the sparkling has surprised many with its fine bead and yeasty characters a just a slight salmon tinge when you look closely.
