About Shadowfax

Shadowfax has taken such exciting strides in recent times, with winemaker Matt Harrop refining the range and proving himself one of the smartest operators around. An influential innovator and hugely respected member of the judging scene, Matt has well and truly proven his prowess with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. His single-vineyard Chardonnays have taken out Best Chardonnay at the Macedon Ranges Wine Exhibition no fewer than five times. He’s also a driving force on the committee of Pinot Massif, the 15-year-old annual workshop that’s done so much to improve the breed of Victorian Pinot Noir. Over that time there won’t have been many $20 LUC Pinots to rival Matt’s 2015 Macedon blend, nor many single-site wines to match the 2015 from Shadowfax’s Little Hampton vineyard. These high-altitude plantings of Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, in the chilliest region of Australia’s mainland, are the vibrant future of Australia’s cool-climate wine scene. The counterpoint to this is the dynamic Minnow project, based around the Werribee vineyard’s southern French varieties. This is the source of bright, spicy, textured rosé and reds, with the micro-make Mondeuse immediately becoming a delicious cult hit.
