Angullong is a family owned wine company from the high elevation, cool climate wine region of Orange in the Central West of New South Wales. Angullong’s Crossing family planted their vineyards on 540 acres between 1998 and 2000, and the first wines were released in 2003. Continuing the property’s long farming history, the remaining 4,000 acres are dedicated to grazing land for Anguscattle as well as to growing fodder crop for the Angullong Pastoral Co.
Angullong wines has built a solid reputation for producing traditional varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet, but also dynamic alternative varieties such as Viognier, Savagnin, Tempranillo, Barbera and Sangiovese. Angullong has some of the oldest Sangiovese vineyards in New South Wales.
Angullong has a straightforward winemaking philosophy based on the belief that the vineyard determines the wine quality and therefore it is the winemaker’s job to ensure the grapes are given the best possible opportunity to reveal their regional origins. The Angullong team is able to pick the finest fruit to go into the wines. These parcels tend to be smaller with each contributing a unique element and degree of complexity to the final blend. All these aspects are brought together by a talented team of winemakers from the Orange and Hunter Valley regions. Headed up by the experienced and highly respected Jon Reynolds, they work in a state-of-the-art winery. Their motivation hails from a desire to present wine-lovers with top quality, modern wines that gain the respect of consumers and critics alike.
