Description

Launched in October 2016, the 'goon tycoons' are three mates with the impeccable wine-world pedigree and a dream to tinker and make playful wines from small parcels of fruit goodness they find in the vineyards in Margaret River and nearby regions during their “real jobs”. The team comprises 2019 Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year Julian Langworthy (of Deep Woods), John Fogarty as Viticulturist and Mark Fogarty in Finance. As the gents say, Goon Tycoons is their chance “to get rich, or get drunk trying.” 

The Wines

The range comprises small batch creations made with natural ideals but technical clout for ultimate drinkability. There are a couple of Rieslings and various Shiraz styles, a well-publicised Rose, Chardonnays, Grenache blends and more.

Wines can be tasted and purchased at the Tycoons' cellar door at Abbey Vale Winery in Yallingup, open Wednesday to Sunday 10am - 5pm. The cellar door is shared with Yallingup Cheese Company and Wulura Olive Oil.

Description

The original owners of Higher Plane inspected over 30 sites around Margaret River before settling upon Forest Grove. The vineyard, with its gravelly duplex soils and southern Margaret River cool southerly winds, was first planted in 1997 with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Subsequent Chardonnay plantings have ensued. Natural farming principles are followed to ensure optimum soil health and encourage biodiversity in the vineyard.

The Wines

The team firmly believes in the ‘less is more’ approach, seeking delicacy, elegance and complexity in the wines through minimal intervention winemaking. Indigenous yeasts are often used for fermentation and minimal sulphur additions are made for the truest expression of the vineyard site. Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are the heroes, and an innovative Fiano is being pioneered.

The wines are sold through the cellar door of our sister brand Juniper, which can be found at 98 Tom Cullity Drive, Cowaramup, WA, and are also available online though the Higher Plane website.

Enjoy some of the region’s oldest vines and wines with a reputation for consistent high-quality, a tasting with the friendly team on the lawn beside the Wilyabrup Brook or in front of the log fire.

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.

Description

Wise Wine was established by Ron and Sandra Wise in 1992 in a truly iconic setting, surrounded by vineyard and the natural bushland of Meelup Regional Park looking out to the pristine blue waters of Geographe Bay. The property’s two restaurants and expansive wine tasting list make for a spectacular experience with a vista to be remembered forever!

The Wine
The wine range aims to suit all taste preferences and budgets, offering 20 quality sparkling, white, red, dessert and fortified wines. The winemaking philosophy includes sourcing parcels of the highest quality fruit from top vineyards in the WA regions that are most-suited to grow each grape variety.

Celebrated winemaking consultant, Larry Cherubino, has overseen activities at the winery for many years. His stewardship has seen the quality of Wise Wines become some of the most awarded in the region, winning Gold medals at many Australian Wine Shows.

The Food
Wise Vineyard Restaurant is one of the best known restaurants in the region, where you can enjoy a stunning meal with ocean views. The menu features contemporary cuisine which changes regularly as local produce comes in and out of season. 

For a more casual dining experience, take a short trip down to the valley, to the banks of the Meelup Brook and visit Lot 80 Tavern & Restaurant. Housed in a historic stone and timber building built by local farmers and craftsmen, it features Italian, French, Spanish and Australian-inspired tasting and shared menus that utilise local ingredients, where possible.
