Essentially the Dragonfly Cabernet Merlot is an expression of the deep dark fruit characters we attain from the Ferguson region, rich and smooth with lashings of chocolate.


Winemaking technique enhances the aromatic and flavour profile of the varieties whilst maintaing a long fine tannin structure.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Powerfull fresh aroma of blackberry fruit, anise, ripe black plums and bay leaf aromas. Vibrant Mulberry and ripe blackberry fruits, intense flavour with silky long tannin balanced by fine oak.
Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced predominately from the Blinman block which was planted in 1998. 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
100% barrel matured in new and older french hogsheads.
Winemaker Notes
Solid Winter rains were followed by a wonderfully warm Spring in 2017 heralding encouraging conditions for Vintage 2018 and indeed led to a long even Indian Summer. One rain event in mid January (35mm) was a blessing, and from then on vintage was dictated by long warm and dry days. Yield in 2018 is at or just below average within the region, The south west of western Australia also had one of the strongest displays of Marri bloom that I can recall, allowing crops to ripen without bird pressure.
