Description

Located nearby Denmark, Yilgarnia is the geological name for a region of Western Australia formed more than 2 billion years ago. Established in 1997 by Peter and Anthony Buxton, the vineyard has north-facing slopes with stunning views of the Hay River Valley, Wilson Inlet and the hills surrounding Denmark. The influence of the Southern Ocean's climate on the vineyard is significant and enables the production of colourful, aromatic, cool-climate wines.

The Wines

Yilgarnia is highly recognised for its Sauvignon Blanc, which James Halliday suggested is the signature wine and one of the best of its kind in Australia. The hand-crafted, estate-grown range also includes three sparkling wines and a selection of Cabernet blends, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon wines are also made.

Cellar Door

Reopening in 2019 is the cellar door, which offers tastings with some of the region’s most spectacular views across the vineyard, lush farmlands and wildflowers.
