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.

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. 

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.

Winemaker Notes
The season for the Geographe wine region was cool and dry. The five months until the end of January had yielded little rain, about 70mm less than the same period last year The cooler weather also disrupted flowering and fruit set resulting in much smaller bunch sizes and high incidence of hen and chicken. The January 2019 average temperature of 21.3 was two degrees Celsius lower than the 23.3 of 2016.
Production
100% barrel matured in new and older french hogsheads.
