The Wines
The Beckett’s Flat vineyard was first planted in 1992. The vineyard is managed primarily with organic practices and the wines are all made on site in the pair’s small, but well-equipped winery.

The first harvest in 1999 was a momentous occasion.

In 1983 Cape Mentelle won Australia’s most coveted wine award, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Award for its Cabernet Sauvignon and cemented its position as a premium producer when it won it again the following year. This was huge, not just for Cape Mentell, but also for the youthful Margaret River wine region.

Today Cape Mentelle forms part of the LVMH group (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) and its wines remain some of the region’s most critically acclaimed. James Halliday says they are, “knocking on the door of the Winery of the Year Award.” Environmental sustainability is a key driver within the vineyards and winery and Cape Mentelle was WA’s first member into Australian wine sustainability program, Entwined. To achieve this certification the vineyard utilises the most natural viticulture techniques.

The Wines
The critically-acclaimed wine range is focused around Margaret River’s signature varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (and blends), Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Chardonnay. An historic Zinfandel is made too, from vines planted in 1974 which were brought out directly from California to the Cape Mentelle Vineyard.

Located just five minutes towards the coast from Margaret River town, guests can enjoy tasting experiences starting from $10.

The courts are free to use, boules can be borrowed from the cellar door.

Since 1982 Cape Mentelle has hosted the region’s most renowned Cabernet event. The Cape Mentelle International Cabernet Tasting is a blind tasting that features a selection of Cabernets from the world’s finest cabernet producing regions; Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Tuscany and Margaret River. Tickets sell quickly to industry and media, but every year a few lucky members of the public can come along to this amazing event too. Visit Cape Mentelle’s website for details.

Owners Sasha and Ben McDonald refer to the southern Karridale sub-region as the ‘cooler sister’ to the rest of the Margaret River cape. Their winery brings this cool to life in both the style of its wines and the estate vibe. Ben is the fifth generation on the McDonald family farm. He single-handedly planted the 6-acre vineyard when aged 19 and has continued to evolve his family farm since. In addition to vines, the property has over 270 fruit trees, several vegetable gardens and a few thousand sheep.

The property follows sustainable farming practices to encourage a healthy eco-system, with all elements coexisting to improve the overall heartbeat of the farm. Sheep graze among the vines for six months after harvest to control the weeds and add nutrients into the cycle. Bug pressure is taken care of by guinea fowls and chickens.

The Wines
The wines are handmade with an intuitive, hands-off approach and every parcel of fruit is managed individually through the winemaking process. Natural yeasts are used for authentic, characterful wines. Often their trusty old basket press is used, making for a true artisanal feel. Alongside Margaret River signature varieties, check out the intriguing Fumé Blanc, Rosé and Vintage Port.

Description

In 1975, local couple Merilyn and Graham Hutton (a teacher and dairy farmer) decided to diversify their cattle farm, planting a 4.5 hectare vineyard on their property. Ingenuity was paramount in those early days as they became self-tutored vignerons and winemakers, building their winery ‘on the cheap’ by hand, from local resources. In 1978, they named their venture Gralyn, a combination of both their Christian names.

New generations of the family are at the helm of winemaking and viticulture these days, growing highly sought-after wines from their non-irrigated, mature vineyard, located 3km from the coast.

The Wines
Organically made, the wine range focuses on full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay with strength and finesse. Gralyn Estate also made the region’s first range of fortifieds, which it has continued since 1978. The current selection includes flavours such as coffee, ruby chocolate and white chocolate. Traditionalists will love the Rare Tawny, Muscats and Vintage Ports which have been judged as some of Australia’s finest.

Wine Tasting
Complimentary tastings of the wine range are available daily from a state of the art cellar door, which is surrounded with stunning vineyard views. Sold only through the cellar door or online, this is a truly unique opportunity to discover a secret treasure of Margaret River wine. Open daily, 10.30am-4.30pm.

Description

Originally called Wright’s and planted in 1973 on excellent soils beside the Wilyabrup Brook, the property was renamed Juniper by the late Roger Hill and wife Gillian Anderson in 1998.

The site has a rich history. In the 19th century the road from Busselton to the south of Margaret River ran through what is now the vineyard, hence the wine range called “the Crossing”. The present block was created by a sub division by the Junipers, a well-known Western Australian artist family.

The Wines

The vineyard is unirrigated and the vines hand-pruned and hand-picked at vintage. It was originally planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Semillon and subsequent plantings of Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec in 1999. Winemaker Mark Messenger has a longstanding reputation for the excellent quality and regional typicity of his wines which are made onsite at Juniper Estate’s state of the art facilities.

Wine Tastings

Enjoy a picturesque setting in the serene part of Wilyabrup, with views of rolling hills and the vineyards. Wines by the glass or bottle can also be enjoyed on a peaceful lawn beside the Wilyabrup Brook or in winter, beside the log fire on the winery’s comfy leather couches.

  • Margaret River:Treeton

Description

McHenry Honen is the fusion of an accomplished fine-wine retailer, Murray McHenry, with one of Margaret River’s most respected pioneers David Hohnen (founder of Cape Mentelle).

Their aim is to make the most site expressive wines they can from their three distinct family vineyards in Margaret River, all of which are 100% biodynamic. Biodynamics revolves around an environmental equilibrium. It is similar to organic farming, in that both preclude the use of chemicals, however biodynamic farming incorporates ideas about a vineyard as an ecosystem, and also accounts for astrological influences and lunar cycles.

The Wines
There is an unwavering focus on making distinct, site expressive wines and on embracing the individual characters that come from the different plots in the vineyards. This is achieved through minimal-intervention using wild yeasts, minimal sulphur, no filtration and large format oak and concrete fermenters. The range includes Margaret River’s specialty varieties and a few unexpected surprises. More than five single-site Chardonnays showcase just how different the flavours of this variety can be because of different site influences in the vineyard.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door is conveniently located on Caves Road, just five minutes from Margaret River town. The wines can be tasted between 10.30 and 4.30pm daily.

Unique Highlights
Don’t leave without some of David Hohnen’s smoked cold meats, sausages and traditionally made smallgoods from side venture, The Farm House Margaret River. These are sold from the McHenry Hohnen Cellar Door. David works with farmers around the region on this venture and his meats have a great reputation, especially with many of the local winemakers to enjoy with their friends and wines!
