In 2005 Naomi and Ben purchased their vineyard in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. They sold grapes to other winemakers whilst completing the organic certification process for their vineyard. At the same time, the pair enjoyed an epic three-year trip of wine tasting and surfing in Europe to discover the spectrum of old-world techniques through which wine can be made without additives.
Naomi and Ben returned to their vineyard in 2009 and Blind Corner began. The winery now owns two Margaret River vineyards, a winemaking facility and a bottling line, all of which are certified organic and biodynamic by Australian Certified Organic.
Fusing old world techniques and new world knowledge, Blind Corner create wines using only natural yeasts and minimal additives. The label is known for its endless experimentation with creative winemaking, for instance air-drying, skins ferments and carbonic maceration. This is done under their constant questioning of, ‘what would happen if we do this?’ Much of the range features Margaret River varieties made in highly original ways, like an early harvest Shiraz, air-dried Cabernet Sauvignon and a full-skins fermented Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend.
Taste the wines at Blind Corner’s new cellar door, open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm. Contact the winery for details.
