Description

Formerly known as Piesse Brook Wines, Aldersyde is a stunning boutique winery located in the Bickley Valley and the oldest continually operating winery in the Perth Hills.

This is a traditional family winery in the truest sense. Specializing in hand crafted wines from fruit grown entirely on the estate vineyard, practically all the winemaking procedures are done by hand, from picking and sorting the grapes to winding up the hydraulic wooden basket press.

Relatives and friends join in and help at critical times, including vintage and pruning, but Aldersyde is essentially a mother-daughter operation, with Lara looking after the vines and winemaking and mother, Di, in charge of cellar door sales. 

Increasingly, the focus in the cellar is to produce more natural wines, using foot-treading and hand-plunging (pigéage) with pumpovers during fermentation and indigenous yeasts instead of manufactured yeasts and products.

Six wines are produced: Saignée, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Shiraz, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Production is limited to approximately 100 dozen per wine style and the wines are not available for retail elsewhere, making the cellar door experience quite unique.

Wines are available for tasting by appointment at the tiny cellar door, with the gorgeous wine-covered terrace overlooking the vines. Di runs the cellar door but Lara is often also available to chat whilst you savour a delicious glass of wine and Zoe the winery dog entertains the kids.

THE WINEMAKER

Larissa (also known as Lara) Bray is one of the quiet achievers of the Western Australian wine industry and a third-generation vigneron in the Perth Hills.

After a short career as a lawyer in Canberra and London, Lara studied winemaking at Adelaide University and then gained formidable experience by working vintage at iconic Australian wineries - Brokenwood, Mt Mary and Vasse Felix; Chard Farm in Central Otago; then Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Loire, Northern and Southern Rhone, and Barolo.

After working as assistant winemaker at Cape Mentelle from 2004 until 2007, Lara left to work with her mother, Di, at the family winery.

In 2008, Lara joined a distinguished group who have been dux of the Len Evans Tutorial - 'the most exclusive wine school in the world' says James Halliday, and has judged at wine shows throughout Australia and in New Zealand.

THE VINEYARD

The climate in the Perth Hills is typically Mediterranean with cool, wet winters and hot, dry summers, mediated by cooling afternoon sea breezes and night temperatures 2-3 degrees cooler than Perth or the Swan Valley. The climate has been likened to that of the Douro Valley in Portugal. MJT Kalamunda in the Bickley locality is 23.1°C, RH 45%, rainfall 900-1200mm.

Soils comprise underlying granitic quartz clays at depths from half a metre to 3 metres. The top vineyard and the top half of the bottom vineyard are planted on hilltop slopes and comprise gravels with medium to light loam content. The lower half of the bottom vineyard is in a gently sloping valley and consists of mostly loams and alluvial soils. Because of the underlying clay subsoil, soils tend to retain good moisture levels throughout the growing season. Drip irrigation is applied if necessary.

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 cellar door.

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.

It is located on a historic property called the Chestnut Farm that was established in the 19th century as an orchard and planted with grapevines in 1865 to provide fruit to the local timber-millers in Jarrahdale.

Owners Peter and Lee Fogarty set their sights on winemaking, planting vines in 1996 and in 2001 a stunning winery, including a tasting room and restaurant was completed.

The Wines

The attraction to the Perth Hills was the uncanny similarities to the Northern Rhône region. Shiraz and Viognier were chosen as the two flagship varieties and have become recognised as excellent examples of both styles. The fruit grown on the Estate is high quality with low yields a core objective and a small batch winemaking approach is followed.

Millbrook, together with the iconic Lake’s Folly vineyard in the Hunter Valley, Evans and Tate in Margaret River, Deep Woods Estate in Margaret River and Smithbrook Wines in Pemberton, forms part of the Fogarty Wine Group.

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,Rosé

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.
