Moonlight Cabernet Sauvignon

The discovery of gold around Gundagai in the mid 1800s brought not only prospectors, but the bushrangers that have been romanticized in Australian history.

Notorious men like Dunn, Gilbert, Ben Hall and Captain Moonlight came to steal their share of the bounty, and were active in the Gundagai region, which takes in the land around Borambola Winery.
A particularly tragic tale surrounds the exploits of Andrew George Scott, who was better known as Captain Moonlight. Scott was a lay preacher who fell on hard times and entered a life of crime to survive. His bushranging career came to a spectacular end when he was held up in a siege by the local constabulary, during which Constable Webb-Brown was shot. Soon after, Moonlight was captured, tried and then hanged in Sydney’s Darlinghurst jail. There are still bullet scars in the walls of Old Borambola homestead – the original home on the property – to remind us of an unwanted visit by the infamous Captain Moonlight.In 1995, 115 years after his death in 1880, a group of locals decided to bring the remains of Captain Moonlight back to the region so he could be buried near his friends in the Gundagai cemetery.
