Description

Mary and Mike Dilworth established Abbey Creek in 1990 and the original pinot noir and riesling vines were planted in the same year. The cabernet vines were planted in 1993 and now grafted to pinot noir, and the sauvignon blanc vines were planted much later in 2006. Mike remains in the role of viticulturist and Rob Diletti makes the wines.

The name ‘Abbey Creek’ is a combination of two geological markers at the estate: the creek that runs (in winter) alongside the vineyard; and the view of The Abbey in the Stirling Range, WA’s highest collection of peaks. The vineyards are nestled on the northern slope of the Porongurup range, providing a dramatic backdrop when looking over the vineyard towards the main house.

The Wines
The Porongurup sub-region in the Great Southern is known for producing long-lived rieslings with distinct floral characteristics, and pinots that show bright cherry, pomegranate and red berry characteristics. The wines have been time and again selected for medals and trophies at both regional and national wine shows within Australia, claiming a total of 9 wine show trophies.   

Wine Tasting
Visitors can enjoy the wines on tasting at the cellar door (open 7 days 10-5 ‘when the flag is flying and the sign is out’), an old shearing shed with views over the vineyards and the Kalgan plain. 

Unique Highlights
The view of the Porongurup Range, and the proximity to it.  The wine range is magnificent and concise, the views are picturesque.

Description

Quietly spoken and considered winemaker Rob Diletti is renowned for his ability to coax the best from every parcel of fruit and vineyard that he handles, and for producing wines that year after year amass an unbelievable amount of high reviews, trophies and medals. Rob is also an extremely well-regarded and sought-after wine judge at shows around Australia, and contract winemaker for a large number of estates in and around the Porongurup sub-region. 

Castle Rock Estate was founded in the Porongroups in 1983 and from humble beginnings has grown into a 55ha property. 

The Wines
The riesling, pinot noir and shiraz are the heroes of the Castle Rock range. The rieslings have proven themselves to be exceedingly well suited to long-term cellaring, but are still approachable in their youth thanks to the white floral characterics of the Porongurup sub-region.  The pinot noir is famed for its consistency and silky, red cherry fruit, and the cool climate syrah is a shining light for the style.  Other wines include sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cabernet franc, merlot and a dessert wine.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door features expansive views of the Porongurup range, and is open 7 days, 10am - 5pm.

Description

What began as a ‘retirement dream’ in the late nineties for Hilde and Duke has turned into an incredibly successful winery business.  The 25 acres of vineyards are planted exclusively to riesling, cabernet and shiraz, and due to the cool climate location at the western end of the Porongurup Range, the wines enjoy an elegance and spice that is endemic to the region. 

Hilde Ranson is a celebrated artist and responsible for designing the curved cellar door overlooking the vineyard and the picturesque Stirling and Porongurup Ranges. The cellar door also doubles as an art gallery, Hildes Gallery at Dukes, and a function area. 

The winery has been listed in James Halliday’s Wine Companion’s Top 100 wineries every year since 2013, and in 2017 the Magpie Hill riesling was James Halliday’s Riesling of the Year. 

The Wines
With celebrated local winemaker Rob Diletti at the winemaking helm, the wine range is concise and very high quality, and Dukes is widely regarded as one of the best riesling producers in Australia. The wine ranges consist of four Single Vineyard wines, four Magpie Hill Reserve wines, and a sparkling shiraz and riesling. 

The cool climate vineyard produces age-worthy wines of elegance, structure and finesse.

Wine Tasting
Wines are available for tasting at the gallery and cellar door, which is open seven days 10-4:30pm.

Unique Highlights
Custom designed cellar door by artist Hilde Ranson, award winning wines and spectacular views over the Ranges from the tasting room.
