McWilliam’s Wines has today launched a new range of wines, called the McW range, which comes from grapes in the cool climate regions of New South Wales.

The new McW wine range

Within the series there will be the McW 480 and 660 Reserve wines, with each named after the respective altitude that the grapes are ripened at.

Chief Winemaker, Jim Chatto, said: “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.”

Harvested from vines grown at an average of 480 metres above sea level the McW 480 range includes the Tumbarumba Sauvignon Blanc, Hilltops Shiraz and Tumbarumba Pinot Grigio.

The McW 660 range is described as being a “true expression of the rich diversity and sophistication of high altitude wines, encapsulating modern Australian styles with a medium body”. The range includes the Tumbarumba Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz and a Canberra Syrah.

The McW 480 has a $20 RRP and the McW 660 Reserve range has a $25 RRP, all the wines are available nationally from today at independent retailers as well as Dan Murphy’s and BWS.
