Scruffy, Nugan Estate's Shiraz vineyard manager, works hard to keep the Shiraz bunches tight and our berries small and yields very low at around 4 tons per acre. Nugan Estate winemaker insists on bunch sorting at harvest to make sure we only use the very best clusters. Most of the fruit is destemmed and pressed while a small portion is whole bunch pressed. All parcels are kept separate during the winemaking process in our state of the art winery.

Cookoothama is made from estate grown fruit from the Nugan family’s vineyards in King Valley and Darlington Point. Cookoothama (cooka-tharma) is the name of the family’s first vineyard at Darlington Point on the Murrumbidgee River in Riverina. The name is derived from the aboriginal language and means “fertile land.” The two hands on the label represent the people who have lived and cultivated the land spread along the banks of the Murrumbidgee River transforming it into the prosperous land it is today.
