The wine making approach of Ross Hill's wine maker Phil Kerney stems from 20 years of research both locally and internationally. His many years of travel helped him formulate his technique via ancient techniques and modern quality control designed to balance the complex wines.
Phil makes stunning wines that have a heart & soul... that demonstrate a complex structure... yet are harmonious... that are rich and luscious... that are mouthfilling and balanced.
Phil's design of the Ross Hill Wine range is such that it celebrates the spectrum of the Orange Region Terroir with the wines he produces bringing out its best effect.
The Pinnacle Series Range is the premium label of the Ross Hill range. It is broad and ranges from aromatic cool climate white wine varieties including Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc, to the Burgundian styled Chardonnay and Pinot, and the unforgetable Big reds of Shiraz, Cabernet and Cabernet Franc which are sourced from the Ross Hill home vineyard vines on Griffin Road.

Winemakers, Phil and Rochelle Kerney
The Pinnacle Series represents the most outstanding parcels of wine from each vintage which best display the sub regional terroir of specific sites across the Orange district. From our amazing and unique Griffin Road site comes yet another Ross Hill Cabernet Franc with the stunning ripeness and power that only this vineyard can produce. Hand picked and naturally fermented by wild yeasts at our new Wallace Lane winery, matured in small French oak for eighteen months, this is an intensely aromatic and powerful wine which will live and improve for many years.
