The fruit is picked by machine in the cool of night and processed first thing in the morning to keep the fruit at a cool temperature. It is destemmed into bins and tipped into the fermenters to try and maintain as many full berries as possible. The ferment is cold soaked for 3 days and then allowed to ferment and warm up to 28C for fermentation. It is then pressed off just before the end of the ferment to tank and then transferred to barrel. French Oak puncheons are used with about 20% of them new.

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.
