Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from 1998 plantings, in our north facing Forrest, Jarrah and Blinman blocks.

Dragonfly Shiraz is an expression of the juicy and generous varietal blackberry and blueberry fruits we attain in the Ferguson Valley, complemented by fine tannin and supporting French oak.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fresh blueberry and ripe black plums, spice and gentle biscuit oak dominate the nose. Textural and rich, sweet plums and dark berries with toasted French oak and long fine tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight westerly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Production Notes
Crushed cool to fermenters to static fermenters for eight days, peak temperature 28 degrees Celsius 100% barrel matured in new and older french hogsheads.
Winemaker Notes
A cold and wet Spring in 2016 shaped a milder vintage in 2017, which was further interrupted by February and March rains. The resulting conditions led to a lengthy ripening period, and a 2-3 week delay to start of vintage. Lower temperatures at ripening are beneficial to retain freshness and elegance, and wines of lower alcohol and crisp acidity.

My favourite by far (apart from Black Dog) . Not just sippable, but quaffable.

Impressive wine for the price. Muscular but not muscle bound, dense yet beautifully balanced and silky smooth.
