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.

Polguern Estate Wines

One of the oldest vineyards in the Perth Hills producing reds, rose and port from organically dry grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties.

  • Open Days/times:No Cellar Door.
  • Wine Region:Perth Hills
  • Wine Variety:Cabernet Merlot,Rose

Details

  • Winemaker:Matt Bowness (Contract)
  • Facilities:No Cellar Door
  • Size & Year:Established 1951 - 2000
  • Perth Hills:Heart of the Hills

Description

The name ‘Polguern’ is a heartfelt tribute to John and Sylwia Rower countries of origin. Sylwia was born in Poland, and John in Guernsey, Channel Islands and purchased the property in 2012.

Polguern Estate is home to two vineyards growing Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot. Originally planted in 1990, the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard at Polguern contains 1700 vines and is believed to be the oldest in the region. The strict pruning regime and dry growing technique reduces the yield to less than five tonnes per year, far less than the average vineyard of its size. Dry growing results in smaller grapes with a higher skin to juice ratio, producing a wine of greater complexity on the palate. Conversely, the Merlot vineyard was planted in 2008 and consists of approximately 500 vines. Less rigorous pruning is applied to these vines, and approximately three tonnes of fruit are produced annually.

Our Wines
The Estate’s flagship wine, “Pharoah’s Tribute”, is a product of the winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The Merlot grapes are used to produce a French Provence-style dry rose, Merlot-Cabernet blend and a Solero Port.
