Producer Summary:The vineyard is sited high on the western watershed of the Darling Ranges of the Ferguson Valley, with the vines enjoying spectacular views over the coastal plain, and across the waters of Geographe Bay to Cape Naturaliste. The vineyard is 25km from the coast as the crow flies, and receives the cooling afternoon sea breeze during summer. At an elevation between 230 and 280 meters, the estate is generally two degrees or more cooler than the coastal plain, with ripening times similar to the cool southern parts of the neighbouring Margaret River wine region.
Short Tasting Note:Medium weight and a little exotic. Dark cherry and fruitcake characters play against savoury notes and hungry tannins - no quaffer, it demands food.
Long Tasting Note:The palate fairly accurately echoes the nose with sweet and ripe fruitcake characters counterbalancing the more savoury elements, some smokiness and some serious, corrugated waves of dusty tannins which demand some proteinaceous food to go with them. Tapas anyone?
