Philip Shaw

Philip Shaw, formerly head of Production/Winemaking for both Rosemount and Southcorp Wines, is one of the worlds leading winemakers. He has twice won the coveted Winemaker of the Year at the London International Wine and Spirit Competition- in 1986 and in 2000.

Philip spent years investigating and exploring many regions within Australia until by accident he noticed the undulating countryside when flying over the Orange Region. After a few days of intense research into the highland area, he returned the next week to find the region had a near perfect balance of elevation and sunshine. The vineyard peaks at 900m on the side of an extinct volcano- Mt. Canobolas. With less than 1% of Australia’s vineyards above 600m, Koomooloo (the vineyard site,) is one of the highest vineyards in Australia.

“I have waited a long time to make sure the vineyard has enough maturity before attempting to make wine from it. I think great wines should have a silk, a softness and texture.”
