We are pretty lucky here in Australia. We have beautiful cities, then there are the luscious countrysides and best of all the vineyards that litter the different states. In the Hunter Valley alone there are over 120 wineries and some even with their own restaurant, and event facilities. One such place is the Bimbadgen Estate, which is located on a hill in the heart of the Hunter Valley Wine Country. Bimbadgen doesn’t just have an expansive Cellar Door and cafe, but also an outdoor amphitheatre for all those amazing events, modern tasting rooms and accommodation as well as their award-winning Esca Bimbadgen Restaurant.
The Bimbadgen range of wines are divided into 6 different types. The Bimbadgen Ridge, Bimbadgen Sparkling, Bimbadgen Estate, Bimbadgen Regions, Bimbadgen MCA Art Series and Bimbadgen Signature – all with their own unique characteristics. I was recently given three wines from their Bimbadgen Sparkling range to try out. So far I’ve only been able to try their Bimbadgen NV Rose, described as a sparkling wine with aromas of fresh berries and bright strawberries and cream characters that carry through the palate with a clean, crisp finish. This is definitely a bubbly wine and I’m used to a good crisp Sauvignon Blanc. It was a little bit too sweet for my liking but having said that maybe it’s best to consume this on a nice hot day, with some tapas, and canapes.
I have yet to delve into their Bimbadgen Sparkling NV Semillon and the Bimbadgen Concert Series Sparkling NV Moscato. From the description I think the Moscato might be a hit as it’s got more of a floral and grape flavours. It’s no fun drinking alone, so I have to find an occasion to give this one a try.
Bimbadgen also has a Bimbadgen Bubbles Club membership where you are given 6 bottles delivered to your door 3 times a year. Each pack is capped at the discounted price of $75 per pack. Some of the benefits for being member include 20% off all wine purchased via their Cellar Door or online, discount off their Homestead and Cottage accommodation rates, access to “A Day on the Green” and so much more!
