Arrowfield Estate

Positioned in the Upper Hunter Valley of New South Wales on the banks of the Hunter River, Arrowfield Estate is positioned with enviable views, overlooking Wollemi National Park. Arrowfield Farm was originally established in 1824 by the explorer George Bowman. After squatting on the property for some years, he eventually bought the land and built a stone homestead in 1832. Since 1969 Arrowfield Estate has produced a range of wines including Show Reserve, Estate, Sophie’s Bridge and Bowman’s Crossing, most of which have been solid if unexciting wines. Today there is little local availability with the majority exported offshore. Arrowhead Estate Philosophy and Winemaking Arrowfield Estate adopts a minimalist approach to making its wines, preferring to allow the fruit’s flavours and characters to shine through. As a result, the wines of Arrowfield Estate are restrained styles that pair well with a variety of foods. Arrowhead Estate Wine Types When the winery was first established in 1969, Arrowfield estate featured predominantly white grape varieties. Today this includes Chardonnay, Semillon, Verdelho as well as Shiraz. Additionally, varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are sourced from NSW’s Central Tablelands region, providing winemaker Barry Kooij, with a wide range of blending options.
