Carldenn Homestead Wines offer an expansive variety of reds, whites and sparkling wines designed to appeal to any palette.

Description

Nestled in Jarrah forest on the Darling Scarp at an elevation of 400 metres, Hainault is the highest vineyard in Western Australia, and is in one of the coldest parts of the State. The 17 acre property was replanted as a vineyard in 1978 by Peter Fimmel, one of the pioneers of the then infant Perth Hills Wine Region.

Owners Michael and Lyn Sykes purchased the vineyard in 2002, with an objective to produce premium quality varietal wines whilst further developing a style synonymous with the Perth Hills. The couple's relationship with the environment is signified in Hainault's logo of a Boobook owl, an animal native to the area, and viticulture and land management practices reflect their commitment to sustainability. Hainault also prides itself on being pet friendly, and it's common to see the Sykes family Kelpies at their cafe.

The Wines

All Hainault wines are made from estate grown, hand harvested fruit using minimal interventions. Among an extensive range, Hainault produces a traditional method Sparkling Pinot Noir, Semillon, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Rose, Cabernet Merlot Blend, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cellar Door

Wine tastings and cellar sales are available Saturday to Monday from 11am-5pm.

The Food

Open for lunch Saturday to Monday from 11am-5pm, the Hainault Cafe offers nibbles, platters, hearty mains and delicious desserts on a verandah overlooking the stunning vineyard. All food is prepared on premises and made to order using locally sourced organic produce whenever possible, and several vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are available.

Description

What began as a hobby and just 100 vines for Ann and Patrick Bertola is now one of Perth Hill's most fruitful vineyards. Initially a part of an important timber milling area, the Lion Mill Vineyard is located on the northern side of a gently sloping valley on Charlotte Brook in Perth's Darling Ranges and was established in 1999, when the first Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted. The soils are those typical of the Perth Hills; loam, gravelly loam and lateritic gravels. The elevation (just under 300 metres), cold winters and hot dry summers all provide great growing conditions.

Lion Mill wines are produced from hand-picked fruit grown on the property. Care and time is constantly committed to the viticulture of grapes on the property, and tasks such as hand pruning, shoot thinning and fruit thinning all ensure that grapes are given the best opportunity to express their varietal characters.

The Wines

The wine range includes sparkling, still, dessert and fortified wines. Look out in particular for their Blanc de Blancs, and Zinfandel, a variety rarely seen in Western Australia.

Cellar Door

Looking out over the vineyards on this picturesque property, the Lion Mill cellar door offers a delightful visitor experience that is intimate, informative and relaxed. Tastings are available of the entire Lion Mill range, and the cellar door is open on weekends from 11am-5pm.
