Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from the Cameron block which was planted in 2009.


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. 


A style which exudes vibrancy and complexity. Distinctive generosity of dark berry fruits with mouthwatering tannin which matches perfectly to food.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fresh and lifted, fragrant red and black fruits assisted by anise and black pepper. Deep, dense wine evolving into flavours of blueberry, raspberry and savoury spice. Long, lingering tannin.
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 puncheons and hogsheads.
Winemaker Notes
A cold and wet Spring in 2016 shaped a milder vintage in 2017, which was further interupted by Ferbruary 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.
