Economic Development Manager's REPORT

 

Wine of the Month

TP Action: 3.1.2

Cabonne Country Wine of the Month for August is Belgravia’s 2012 Gewurztraminer. The Hattersley family first planted Belgravia vineyard in 1996 on the lower slopes of the cool-climate region of Orange, New South Wales. Belgravia Wines is now made from fruit grown in Bellview vineyard, which was first planted in 2001, also by the Hattersley family. Bellview vineyard falls within the Cabonne Shire, located 22 km outside of Orange and 16 km outside Molong.

 

The wine has an explosion of delicious smells, including lychee, ginger, hints of apricot and a sprinkle of almonds complement a fresh palate with flavours of orange peel and rich lime zest, a shaft of crisp acidity and a deceptively long, spicy finish. The wine is perfect with spicy dishes and Asian cuisine. This wine was awarded 4.5 stars by Winestate Magazine.

 

What’s On in Cabonne

TP Action: 2.1.1, 3.1.2

‘What’s On’ is sent to tourism operators and village information centres throughout Cabonne, Visitor Information Centres in Forbes, Parkes, Cowra, Wellington, Orange and Bathurst and other outlets throughout the region. ‘What’s On’ is also emailed to regional media outlets and over 400 subscribers on the Cabonne Country mailing list.
