A blend made famous in the Rhône Valley of France, Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro are blended to make a juicy, vibrant and fresh wine blend of medium body and clean tannin.


Whilst we have had Shiraz planted at Willow Bridge since 1997, Grenache and Mataro have been recent and exciting additions grafted in 2015. For the two cultivars, we chose sites on the vineyard which maximise heat exposure, giving the best opportunity to ripen and express full array of flavours. 


Mataro is a late ripening variety, so the extended period on the vine is essential. Grenache is a prolific yielding variety requiring fruit thinning to achieve best balance of quality and tannin.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright and fresh, blood plums, violet and spice on a soft juicy palate of vanilla, musk and red fruits, with long moreish tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from 1998 plantings of Shiraz and more recent plantings of Grenache and Mataro. 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
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.
