Louee Wines

Rylstone and Nullo Mountain

Louee wines hail from the Rylstone district of New South Wales, Australia – an emerging region for fine wines and produce.

Louee Wines has two vineyards in the Rylstone region (part of the Mudgee GI) including one of the highest planting of vines in Australia at 1100 metres.  The Nullo Mountain vineyard was planted in 1996 by Louee founders Rod James and Tony Maxwell.  Since the brand’s inception, the wines have been made by David Lowe and last year the two businesses merged. 

The Nullo Mountain vineyard is a very special place.  The mountain holds some of NSW’s most spectacular landscapes.  There are savage sandstone escarpments dropping hundreds of metres into the Cudgegong River and agricultural country below on the Rylstone and Mudgee side and dense eucalyptus forests following down to the Wollemi Wilderness and Hunter Valley to the east.

The name Louee is derived from the aboriginal word meaning plentiful water.  With an annual rainfall of one metre and deep soils derived from 17 million year old lava flows, is it a unique vinicultural area.  Whilst part of the Mudgee GI, the wines are far removed from other Mudgee styles.  The Louee wines are a true reflection of the terroir as there is very little work in the vineyard, and no irrigation.

Although unique in terms of terroir, Nullo Mountain is only 50km from the Lowe winery enabling each variety to be brought quickly to the winery, thus retaining and capturing the natural freshness of these cool climate grapes.

2012 Louee Nullo Mountain Pinot Grigio

"Pale straw-green; a snappy grigio, the crisp, lively palate reflecting the cool climate, and attention to detail in the winery; the flavour is 100% correct, its focus nashi pear, the acidity bright. 92 Points". James Halliday, 2014 Australian Wine Companion
