Frog Choir makes a tiny 250 cases of wine each year from one of the region’s micro-vineyards. The estate takes its name from the diverse populations of frogs that reside among the small spring-fed dams on its impeccable property, ideally located nearby icon producers Leeuwin Estate, Voyager Estate and Xanadu.

The Wines
The quaint vineyard specialises in growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, and its range is centred around the classic Australian blend of the two. The wines are completely handmade, from pruning to hand-harvests and hand-plunged open ferments.

Description

Owner and winemaker Robert Gheradi was born with wine in his blood, spending his Summers growing up picking grapes in the Swan Valley and Margaret River with his extended Italian family to make into wine at his Nonna’s house. Whilst completing his degree in viticulture and winemaking, Robert worked for the esteemed Moss Wood winery, and later at Cullen Wines before spending time with leading Barolo producers before returning to Margaret River to establish Mr Barval (combining Margaret River, Barolo and Valtellina) in 2015.

The centuries-old winemaking traditions of Barolo influenced the ancient winemaking techniques utilised within Mr Barval's production. The wines are fermented with only natural yeasts and basket-pressed grapes to provide the most sensitive juice extraction to make handcrafted wines of balance, elegance and purity. The fruit comes from ultra-high quality grapes throughout Margaret River.

The Wines

The Mr Barval range includes Chardonnay, Rose and Cabernet Merlot. There’s also  an early harvest style Nebbiolo called ‘Nebbia’ and Rhone-inspired white, ‘Mistral’ made from Viognier and Marsanne. Wines can be purchased online or at various stockists throughout WA.

Description

The story behind the name of this Margaret River pioneer dates back 100 years. It’s alleged that prior to the vines, the site was a dairy farm, whose ‘prominent red gate’ was known locally as the place to buy (illegal) home-distilled spirits. Incidentally, the property is nearby to Redgate Beach, so founder Bill Ullinger thought the name to be fitting on all fronts!

The vineyard was established in 1977, with 20 acres of vines planted. Over time, the family owned estate has grown into a 55 acre vineyard, operating its own winery, cellar door and maintaining an enviable reputation for its boutique, premium wines.

The Wines
Since the early vintages of the 1980s, Redgate’s handcrafted wines have received countless awards. In addition to its regional Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnays, Redgate makes Rose, Sparkling and a series of three luscious dessert wines, including a rare fortified Shiraz named in honour of founder, Bill.

Wine Tasting
Wines can be tasted at the homestead-like cellar door is open daily from 10am to 4.30pm. It’s a family-friendly place, perfect to bring a picnic and enjoy the panoramic surroundings.
