There's always something exciting happening at the winery.  With lunches, dinners, wine schools, new releases and special tastings, we'd love to be able to let you know how you can be involved.

'The Lowedown' is just that; the 'what's happening' at Lowe wines.  

STOP PRESS:  Our Nullo Mountain, Rylstone and Mudgee Blue vineyards are now ALL 'Organic under conversion'.

Here's the latest edition...   Is Mudgee a Trendy Destination?  We have been swamped over the last three months with visitors from Australian and also overseas. This is fantastic having all these visitors to Mudgee - hopefully the word is being spread...

Sign up for our regular musings, which will include updates from all of us at the winery, including special offers and invitations to our upcoming events.

(We won't pass your details on to anyone else... Here's the fine print)

There's a number of events planned over the next six months.  Check them out on our 'Events' page.  If you're more social, join us on FACEBOOK or TWITTER or INSTAGRAM.

We hope to see you  in Mudgee soon.

The Latest News...

David Lowe has continued to innovate and experiment with the release of three wines, the 2017 Lowe ‘Jodie Wilbertree’ Sparkling Rosé ($22), 2017 Lowe ‘PF500’ Shiraz ($22) and the new vintage 2017 Lowe ‘Headstone’ Rosé ($28).

With a nod to the arts, the new sparkling rosé is David Lowe’s ‘stage’ name, a combination of David’s first pet’s name (his dog) and the street he grew up on (Wilbertree Road, where he still lives).

The Jodie Wilbertree is a primarily Semillon with a small amount of Petit Verdot. It started as a trial last vintage. It was such a success at cellar door that we made more from 2017. It has a festive nature, sealed with a crown seal, and made for spring and summer.

The new Lowe ‘PF500’ Shiraz is a relaunch of Lowe’s preservative free, organic Shiraz.  “The name came about simply through the reoccurrence of the number 500. The vineyard sits at an elevation of 500 metres, 500 is the name of the horn clay preparation used in biodynamic wine growing, and we’ve bottled a proportion of the wine in 500ml bottles.

Preservative Free wines tend not to last overnight once opened, so we’re experimenting with 500ml bottles. It can be enjoyed in moderation with the wine in the best shape.

The new 2017 Lowe ‘PF500’ Shiraz is unfiltered, unfined and has absolutely no sulphur. “This is our ninth vintage making preservative free wines.”

The other new release is the 2017 Lowe ‘Headstone’ Rosé, made from a combination of varieties, primarily Grenache. The grapes were harvested with low sugar and supplemented with small parcels of super powerful Merlot, Zinfandel, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc.

The first rosé I made was in 1981 for the Museum of Contemporary Art. It was a wine made for enjoying in the sun, looking out over Circular Quay. It’s still the perfect wine for Australia’s alfresco live style. There is now great diversity in the varieties used, but the goal is generally the same; interesting, refreshing and eminently drinkable wines.
