Description

Winner of James Halliday’s Dark Horse Winery of the Year 2017, Arlewood is a family-owned, boutique producer making elegant wines the Gosatti family and friends love to drink.

Arlewood's winemaking is inspired by the village of La Bratta in Northern Italy where hands-on owner Gary Gossatti’s ancestors were grape growers for the local community winery. The label began back in 1984 and in 2009 relocated to the cooler Forest Grove property, located 10km south of Margaret.

The Wines
Margaret River’s signature varieties are made with creative and intuitive winemaking techniques. Look out for the European inspired La Bratta Bianco and La Bratta Rosso. The Bianco has been a major hit with the critics, with James Halliday naming it a ‘Wow Factor White’ and saying it was, “a wine that brought goose-bumps due to my unabashed love of fine white Bordeaux… This is a tour de force of winemaking, underlain by a profound love and understanding of the fruit and its origins.”

Wine Tasting
Laid back, tastings of all the wines are available from 11am Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A must see secret cellar door.

Description

Cape Landing’s range of single vineyard wines are all sourced from an ancient landscape first cleared and farmed by pioneer settlers a century ago during the era of Group Settlement in Margaret River. Cape Landing continues to develop a distinctly Australian vineyard that integrates biodiversity with fruit production, allowing it to focus our efforts on both the restoration and maintenance of native species and the plant communities that support Cape Landing’s ecosystem. Cape Landing’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc vines thrive in a picturesque vineyard that spans gently rolling hills, with well drained soils, benefiting in particular from a distinctly Mediterranean style climate; where wet winters and long warm summers create a perfect environment for making fragrant, textured, wines.

Devil's Lair

Deep in the South of Margaret River near towering karri trees and the ‘Devil’s Lair’, a hidden Cave with evidence of life dating back 50,000 years, stunning Cabernets and Chardonnays are produced.

  • Facilities:No Cellar Door

Description

The Cave is recognised as one of Australia’s most significant archaeological sites, holding evidence of life from 50,000 years ago. It was here that Phil Sexton, then an archaeology student and later Devil’s Lair founder and WA hospitality legend, found himself considering the idea of creating a wine label. In 1981 Phil purchased land nearby and the Devil’s Lair wine story began.

Devil’s Lair is known for its meticulous winemaking standards and environmentally focused viticulture. Their efforts towards sustainability have earnt them national Entwine accreditation. For every hectare of vineyard planted on the property, there is 1.14 hectares of natural vegetation retained or planted.

The Wines
The Devil’s Lair winemaking philosophy is to be meticulous, to continually question and challenge, and to refine a winemaking style that is as much about intuition as science. The label focuses on the varieties that fare best in Margaret River. Their chardonnays are known for their taut acidity, minerality, length and subtle oak, while the Cabernet is typically complex and layered with lively aromas. Three tiers enable all budgets to find their perfect Margaret River wine.

Critic James Halliday said of Flowstone early on, “every now and then a new producer will pop up with wines that are really good, and ultimately vie for inclusion in the list of ten of the best new wineries in the next Companion... this is one new winery that will quite certainly be in the top 10, for its ranks among the best I can remember."
