Our Review

Bimbadgen’s Palmers Lane Vineyard was planted in 1968 and the McDonalds Road Vineyard shortly thereafter. Both sites provide old-vine semillon, shiraz and chardonnay, with tempranillo a more recent addition. Since assuming ownership in ’97, the Lee family has applied the same level of care and attention to cultivating Bimbadgen as they have to other properties in their portfolio. The small but impressive production is consumed largely by the owner’s luxury hotel assets, with limited quantities available in the Sydney market. -JAMES HALLIDAY
