The Batches are bought in separately and treated as individual parcels until blending just before bottling. The Tempranillo is picked as ripe as possible to avoid green tannins. They are both brought into the winery and destemmed and fermented in open fermenters. Both are plunged daily and fermented on skins till near dryness where they are pressed off. At the conclusion of ferment they are transferred to French Oak. The Pinot Noir portion for the TemPinot comes from older oak while the Tempranillo only uses old oak to not dominate.

With vineyards planted predominantly at a cool 900m altitude, Swinging Bridge is a family-owned estate at the forefront of the new guard of premium-quality, cool-climate winemaking. Swinging Bridge produces a range of elegant wines reflective of their provenance and of Winemaker Tom Ward’s passion for his home region of Orange, NSW. Tom’s winemaking philosophy is uncompromising; to make premium-quality wines that speak directly of their regional home, and more particularly, the unique terroir of their high altitude vineyard. Swinging Bridge produces a collection of highly-finessed, elegant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines and is also pushing into previously uncharted territory with the innovative Hashtag Series. Swinging Bridge Wines is a tale of two families, the Wards and the Paytens, cousins who have farmed in the district since 1867. The Winemaker Series pay homage to this historic connection, with the wines named in honour of beloved family members. Swinging Bridge is a James Halliday 5 Star Rated Winery.
