One of Margaret River’s earlier established vineyards began in 1979 with planting throughout the early 1980s and has since reaped the benefits of serious long-term viticulture investment. Before wine, the property’s life was as a “Gelignite Block” which stored explosives used to clear the nearby forest for farmland settlements of World War I soldiers.
The surrounding Boranup Forest is not just picturesque but also protects the vineyard from the ocean winds and storms. Karri loam soils and access to a natural water supply from the McCleod creek, which runs through the property, supports long, gentle, even ripening of the fruit. The range focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
