Canobolas-Smith Wines is a small family company making premium quality wines from our six hectares of vineyard on the northern slopes of Mt. Canobolas near Orange.
The vineyard was established between 1986 and 1988 and is comprised of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. All the vines are unirrigated, close-planted, hand pruned and hand picked to optimise fruit quality.
At Canobolas~Smith they take an artisanal approach to winemaking. No compromises are made at any stage of the process. All fruit is picked in small batches at optimal ripeness and carefully sorted before processing. They take great care 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.
