Mt Canobolas, Orange

Winemaker – Murray Smith

Organic Practises

Canobolas-Smith Wines are a small family company making premium quality wines from their six hectares of vineyard on the northern slopes of Mt. Canobolas near Orange, New South Wales. Murray Smith and his family purchased the land at the foot of Mount Canobolas in 1986 and the vineyard was established between 1986 and 1988 and is comprised of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.

Canobolas-Smith ensure an artisanal approach is taken to wine-making.  Winemaker and Owner Murray Smith makes no compromises at any stage of the process.  All fruit is picked in small batches at optimal ripeness and carefully sorted before processing.

Great care is taken to allow the wines to reflect both the vineyard and the season as much as possible, whilst maintaining a certain “house style”.  Only the finest French oak is used during maturation and flavour is retained as much as possible through minimal use of fining and filtration.
