Description

Winner of James Halliday’s Dark Horse Winery of the Year 2017, Arlewood is a family-owned, boutique producer making elegant wines the Gosatti family and friends love to drink.

Arlewood's winemaking is inspired by the village of La Bratta in Northern Italy where hands-on owner Gary Gossatti’s ancestors were grape growers for the local community winery. The label began back in 1984 and in 2009 relocated to the cooler Forest Grove property, located 10km south of Margaret.

The Wines
Margaret River’s signature varieties are made with creative and intuitive winemaking techniques. Look out for the European inspired La Bratta Bianco and La Bratta Rosso. The Bianco has been a major hit with the critics, with James Halliday naming it a ‘Wow Factor White’ and saying it was, “a wine that brought goose-bumps due to my unabashed love of fine white Bordeaux… This is a tour de force of winemaking, underlain by a profound love and understanding of the fruit and its origins.”

Wine Tasting
Laid back, tastings of all the wines are available from 11am Thursday to Sunday. Private tastings can also be arranged.

Description

Owners Sasha and Ben McDonald refer to the southern Karridale sub-region as the ‘cooler sister’ to the rest of the Margaret River cape. Their winery brings this cool to life in both the style of its wines and the estate vibe. Ben is the fifth generation on the McDonald family farm. He single-handedly planted the 6-acre vineyard when aged 19 and has continued to evolve his family farm since. In addition to vines, the property has over 270 fruit trees, several vegetable gardens and a few thousand sheep.

The property follows sustainable farming practices to encourage a healthy eco-system, with all elements coexisting to improve the overall heartbeat of the farm. Sheep graze among the vines for six months after harvest to control the weeds and add nutrients into the cycle. Bug pressure is taken care of by guinea fowls and chickens.

The Wines
The wines are handmade with an intuitive, hands-off approach and every parcel of fruit is managed individually through the winemaking process. Natural yeasts are used for authentic, characterful wines. Often their trusty old basket press is used, making for a true artisanal feel. Alongside Margaret River signature varieties, check out the intriguing Fumé Blanc, Rosé and Vintage Port.

Wine Tasting
The pair converted their grandfather’s timber shed into a tasting room which is open daily from 10am – 5pm Thursday to Monday to taste their wines. Tuesday and Wednesday tastings by appointment.

The Food
A range of tasting plates, bursting with tasty interpretations of the farm’s fresh-picked seasonal produce, incredible grass-fed lamb and whatever seafood has been caught off the shores of Augusta by their sea mates. Vegetarian and dietary options are catered for.

Unique Highlights
Get the true farm experience with a progressive tasting through the vines, macadamias and hop garden to gain a local’s understanding of what a ‘ground to glass’ philosophy truly entails. The tour is extra special from January to April during harvest. Bookings recommended, begins 10:30am daily.

Description

A regional pioneer, Plantagenet Wines was planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vines in 1968 by founder Tony Smith. The first wines were made in 1974 and showed great potential, encouraging Tony to convert a local apple packing shed into a winery and keep making what are now regarded amongst Australia’s most respected examples of Cabernet and Shiraz. Subsequent vineyards were planted, and fruit now comes from five estate-owned properties around the Mount Barker area.

Western Australia’s oldest family business Lionel Samson & Son acquired Plantagenet in 1999 and the estate continues to grow from strength to strength, with an international reputation for its Rieslings, Chardonnays, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Tasting

The mudbrick and timber cellar door, surrounded by stunning garden and historic vines make a beautiful setting in which to explore the Plantagenet wine range. Wines can be tasted daily between 10.30am – 4pm.

The Food

Alongside the cellar door is ‘The Shed’, Plantagenet’s café, serving lunch daily. The menu is a unique blend of contemporary and casual, with hearty dishes that pair with the wines. Dining can be enjoyed from the alfresco deck, or beside the fireplace in winter.

Description

A treasure of the Great Southern, Singlefile is the fruit of labour of the Snowden family, who purchased an established vineyard in Scotsdale Valley in 2008 after an extensive search around Australia; determining that Denmark ticked all the boxes for the quality wines and lifestyle they were seeking.

The team decided to focus the existing vineyard entirely on Chardonnay, pulling out Shiraz and Merlot vines and planting Gingin clone Chardonnay. Fruit for the balance of their wines is sourced from specialist vineyard sites throughout the Great Southern Region and its distinct areas including Mount Barker, Albany, Frankland River.

The cool climate wines are handpicked and made as naturally as possible to allow the fruit to be the star of the finished wine. Their Chardonnay was named Chardonnay of the Year by James Halliday (2019 Wine Companion).

The Wines

Four tiers of wines are made, all of which are drawn from specially selected sites within the Great Southern, except for the estate-grown Chardonnay. Riesling, Cabernet blends, Pinot Noir and Fume Blanc are just some of the wine styles being made.

Wine Tasting

Set beside a stunning lake with beautiful manicured lawns, the wood and brick cellar door is tasteful and chic and a three-time recipient of Gourmet Traveller Wine’s ‘Best Cellar Door of the Great Southern’ award. Guests are welcome every day of the week to taste the wines and go on a journey of discovering the different styles of wines from the diverse Great Southern region. Bring your own picnics are welcome and there’s also an option to enjoy ‘Coco d’Vino’ which is a wine and chocolate tasting flight. No bookings required.
