Located at the western end of the Bennett Ranges, near Denmark Tony and Felicity Ruse purchased their property in 2004, naming it Silverstream in reference to their home near Wellington, New Zealand. Boasting natural karri forests, fertile soil and sweeping ocean views, the picturesque property produces expressive cool-climate, single vineyard wines. The first Silverstream Wine was made with the owners and some local friends, hand-picked and processed at a nearby winery.
The Silverstream Wines range include Sparkling Chardonnay, Riesling, Chardonnay, Rose, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
A charming cellar door is located amidst a beautiful array of gardens and orchards. Open by appointment only.
