Description

The original owners of Higher Plane inspected over 30 sites around Margaret River before settling upon Forest Grove. The vineyard, with its gravelly duplex soils and southern Margaret River cool southerly winds, was first planted in 1997 with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Subsequent Chardonnay plantings have ensued. Natural farming principles are followed to ensure optimum soil health and encourage biodiversity in the vineyard.

The Wines

The team firmly believes in the ‘less is more’ approach, seeking delicacy, elegance and complexity in the wines through minimal intervention winemaking. Indigenous yeasts are often used for fermentation and minimal sulphur additions are made for the truest expression of the vineyard site. Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are the heroes, and an innovative Fiano is being pioneered.

In the absence of a cellar door, the wines are sold through online, and can also be found in independent retail stores and restaurants around Australia.
