Cookoothama means fertile land, an approachable accord of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from fruit grown to a special site at Darlington Point on the Riverina. Employing the best of old world viticultural practices and new world technology, Nugan Estate charge their devoted team with the pleasant task of making wine of the highest order. The two hands on the label represent the people who have lived and cultivated soils which lie along the banks of Murrumbidgee River, transforming it into the salubrious property it is today.
The Nugan estate property has been called Cookoothama since the 1800s. The vineyard is protected from rainfall variation by a fully integrated drip irrigation system, which includes four bores and five licences to pump from the Murrumbidgee River flowing along the southern border of the property. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are harvested from Cookoothama Vineyard throughout the cool of night and delivered in small batches to the winery. Grapes are crushed, inoculated and pumped over in traditional style to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. Components are then transferred to a combination of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels for maturation prior to the final assemblage.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red with youthful purple hue. Aromas of plum and blackberry, infused by hints of spice, herbs and dark chocolate. Concentrated flavours of red berry fruits, mocha and spice over ripe silky tannins and well integrated oak. Cookoothama makes a great food wine that's versatile enough to compliment a wide range of cuisines, casseroles and meats.

About Nugan Estate Winery
Nugan Estate is a story of inspiration about a premium producer of estate grown wine based in Griffith New South Wales
The Nugan Group was founded in 1940 when a young Alfredo Nugan emigrated from Spain with his family to start a small fruit and vegetable packing operation in Griffith, New South Wales. Nugan's daughter in-law Michelle became responsible for the Group’s renaissance into one of Australia’s most successful agricultural enterprises. Looking beyond Australia’s shores, Nugan became the largest exporter of niche juice products to Asia in the Southern Hemisphere with production in excess of 70,000 tonne per annum. Nugan Estate»
