2016 Riesling Huon Hooke. 90 points, Silver Medal, 4 star review.
‘Pale yellow hue and a lovely fresh, lifted floral Riesling aroma, the palate again fruity and aromatic, with fruit sweetness and charm. Very good wine, clean and fragrant.’ Drink 2017 to 2022

2017 Rose Huon Hooke. 92 points, Silver Medal 4 Star review.
‘Lovely colour: a medium to light fresh, purple/pink hue with the right depth. The bouquet is fresh, clean and attractive, with lovely clean berry aromas, strawberry to blueberry, a hint of raspberry. Very appealing, and the palate is intense and balanced, clean and full of fruit but not too much, while the finish is firm and dry with a clean cut-off. Nice wine and food friendly.’ Drink 2018 to 2021

2016 Isolde Reserve Chardonnay Huon Hooke review
‘Complex creamy lees-derived and spicy oak notes add to an interesting bouquet. The palate shows good intensity and drive, with acid bite and linearity.’ Drink 2018 to 2024

For all Huon Hooke review please see his website.


2014 Tristan John Rozentals
'A dry red blended from cabernet sauvignon, merlot and shiraz grown on the warmer Ynys Witrin vineyard. The grapes probably wouldn’t have ripened adequately a hundred or so metres higher up, but here they deliver a wine with distinctive leafy cabernet aromas but an ample, generous palate. A flavoursome, attractive medium-bodied, excellent food wine — good stuff.'

John Rozentals reviews can be found at eglobal travel media, Australian Good Food Guide, The Blue Mountains Record, The Western Weekender Penrith, PS News,  and Molong Online.


2016 Sauvignon Blanc John Rozentals
'I reckon that this dry white, made 100 per cent from Brangayne’s home vineyard, shows exactly why I regard sauvignon blanc from Orange so highly. It has plenty of herbaceous, tropical-fruit aromas but it also has genuine depth of palate flavour and easily passes the second-glass test. Much better than many unsatisfying, overcropped sauvignons from Marborough.' 

2014 Shiraz Huon Hooke review 4 Star, 92 points, Silver Ribbon.

'Medium to deep red/purple colour, nice and bright. Thebouquet is fresh and fruit-driven, with spicy and red fruit aromas. Subtle hints of eucalypt undergrowth. In the mouth, the wine is likewise fruit-forward and fresh, bright, lively and refreshing. Medium to full-body. Loads of energy and elegance. Stylish shiraz.'


2014 Isolde Reserve Chardonnay 94 Points James Halliday Wine Companion 2017
'Seamless. Elegant. Confident. There are any number of apt words to describe it and they all point to its quality. It's not in your face or overt but it presents stone fruit, melon, honeysuckle and lactose flavours with such effortless conviction that you can't but help admire it.'

2015 Sauvignon Blanc Success

The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is proving to be a success at several prominent Australian wine shows. After a great season in the vineyard we were confident this was going to be a delightful wine and we weren't wrong.

Brangayne Cellar Door Review by Cellar Door Score, August 2016

"Knowledgeable and friendly owner, really nice feeling to this cellar door & nice background story to the name of the winery"  Full Review - http://www.cellardoorscore.com/brangayne-of-orange.html
 
2015 Sauvignon Blanc review by John Rozentals for Oz Baby Boomers and The Molong Online websites, July 2016

'I’m a great fan of sauvignon blanc from Orange because it so easily passes the second-glass test and has the texture and palate weight to back the aromatic bouquet, unlike many of the sauvignons from New Zealand’s Marlborough region. I find many of the latter wines simple, aroma-driven caricatures, whereas examples such as this from Orange — and also the Adelaide Hills — have real gravitas. Try with skewered prawns and chilli sauce.'

 2014 Pinot Noir review by John Rozentals for Oz Baby Boomers and The Molong Online websites, July 2016

'This red comes from Brangayne’s Ynys Witrin vineyard, situated on the Forbes Road, near Orange, and a few degrees warmer than the winery’s home vineyard on Pinnacle Road. The characters gained from maturation in French oak blend quite seamlessly with the fruit’s vibrant cherry and berry flavours, producing a wine that’s quite soft, yet complex and substantial. Like many pinots, I reckon that its natural dining partner is roast duck. '

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon review by wine writer John Fordham, Sunday Telegraph 29th May 2016

'Orange initially made its mark with chardonnay but now the regal red grape cabernet sauvignon has surged to popularity in this high-altitude cool-climate region. Brangayne is among Orange’s cabernet sauvignon frontrunners, running off the back of winemaker Simon Gilbert, whose career spans more than four decades.  His 2013 cabernet sauvignon ($32) collected trophies for best red wine and best cabernet sauvignon at last year’s Orange Wine Show and it’s easy to see why as you drool at its sublime appeal . This is superbly structured and balanced, delivering waves of striking berry fruit flavours that are rich and lengthy with a backdrop of toasty oak.'

 2013 Isolde Reserve Chardonnay review by wine writer John Rozentals, 5th June 2015
'...I like it's cool-climate nectarine like flavours and the well-integrated French oak nuances...'

Trophy ‘Best Red Wine of Show’ and Trophy for ‘Best Cabernet Sauvignon’ Orange Wine Show 2015
Our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon took home two Trophies at this year’s Orange Wine Show and our 2013 Tristan received a Gold Medal in the same class! Plus a few silvers and bronzes we are very happy with the results, what a fantastic region producing some amazing wines.

2014 Riesling review by wine writer Winsor Dobbin, Ciao Magazine 6th July 2015
'The Orange wine region in Central Western New South Wales is proving an excellent source of quality cool-climate wines. Brangayne has a pedigree dating back over 20 years and sells much of its fruit, while retaining small amounts for its own label. This is a cracking little Riesling, floral and fresh with bright citrus notes. It’s crisp, it is dry and it is very drinkable, with or without food...'

 2014 Riesling review by wine writer Chris Shanahan, 14th June 2015.
'The Hoskins family owns two vineyards at Orange: the Brangayne vineyard (elevation 960-1000 metres); and the slightly less cool Ynys Witrin Vineyard (860-960 metres). Riesling, from the lower site, was harvested in the cool of a late March night and trucked about 200 kilometres north-east to Simon Gilbert's Mudgee winery. The wine offers a style contrast to those from the Eden and Clare Valleys or Canberra. High acidity accentuates the wine's citrus-like flavours - a hint of orange cut by zesty lemon tartness. At just 11.5 per cent alcohol, it sits light and spritely on the palate and finishes dry.'
