Clairault Steicker combines two unique Margaret River wine stories. Streicker Wines began with a Yallingup vineyard in 2002, acquired by US native John Streicker who was so taken with the local lifestyle, sustainable viticulture ethos and world-class wines when visiting in 2001 that he decided to pursue his wine dreams in Margaret River. In 2012, historic estate Clairault Wines became part of the Streicker portfolio. Major enhancements have been made to all vineyard management to continually improve fruit and wine quality.

The Wines
The wine range celebrates the diversity of Margaret River’s hero varieties when grown in different areas of the wine appellation, with highlights including a single vineyard Cabernet made from 40 year old Wilyabrup vines and a cool-climate looking Syrah from Wallcliffe. It is a pure and unique journey through terroir in Margaret River. Look out for a few niche varieties in the mix too.

Follow a scenic driveway off Caves Road through farm land and native forest to the contemporary cellar door. A relaxing environment to discover the premium wines, it also offers a selection of house made produce available for sale. Private tours and tastings can be arranged in advance. Open 10am-5pm daily.

The Food
The Clairault Streicker Café serves up a selection of modern Australian share-plates for lunch daily. The menu showcases excellent produce, served simply, ideal for those who enjoy less formal dining. For the ultimate indulgence, spend an afternoon with the 5 course long lunch. A gorgeous stone fire-place makes for cosy dining in winter, while in summer, a picnic blanket in the gardens makes for a blissful lunch setting.

Unique Highlights
In addition to wine grapes, the Clairault Streicker Estate Yallingup vineyard grows Protea flowers and table grapes.

Description

Cullen Wines was established by Diana and Kevin Cullen who began experimenting with viticulture in 1966 following various research reports that suggested Margaret River’s climate was similar to that of Bordeaux. Encouraging results led the pair to plant 18 acres of vines on their sheep and cattle farm in 1971 to establish Cullen Wines. Daughter Vanya became chief winemaker in 1989 and has earnt a reputation as one of Australia’s most awarded winemakers.

In 2005, the iconic Diana Madeline Cabernet Merlot was awarded the top Langton’s Classification category of ‘Exceptional’, one of a handful of Australia’s best wines to hold this status. The Kevin John Chardonnay 2007 was awarded the World’s Best Chardonnay at the 2010 Decanter World Wine Awards. Both wines have received a host of international awards, judged against the world’s best wines.

The Wines

The wines are estate-grown from Cullen Wines’ two A Grade Biodynamic (BFA) certified vineyards in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. The philosophy is to search for the best quality expression of the vineyard in the wine. Quality is paramount, and every winemaking step reflects Cullen Wines’ approach to do whatever it takes to make the most outstanding wines. Cabernet Sauvignon (and blends) and Chardonnay are the focus.

Wine Tasting

Cullen Wine’s harmonious stone and timber cellar door is open daily 10.30am to 4pm and offers complimentary tastings of current release wines. A selection of museum vintages can be purchased by the glass from the cellar door’s enomatic wine machine. Enthusiasts will love Cullen Wines tour, which teaches the principles of biodynamics in the vineyards and includes a visit to the historic vines and winery followed by a private wine tasting.

The Food

The award-winning Cullen restaurant overlooks their historic vineyard making a relaxing place for a glass of wine, lunch or a coffee. The menu incorporates only fresh, biodynamic and organic produce sourced from Cullen’s restaurant garden and selected local producers. For an extra treat, try Cullen’s Food & Wine experience, a five-course feast paired with wines.

Unique Highlights

The Cullen Wines homestead is set in peaceful vineyard surroundings for a rejuvenating getaway that supports the winery’s philosophy of living in harmony with nature. It was built in 1976 and is conveniently located within a short walking distance of the Cullen Wines’ tasting room and restaurant.

Forest Hill has an interesting pioneer history and was once owned by the Holmes a Court family of Vasse Felix in Margaret River. In 1996 the vineyards were bought by the Lyons family, the current owners and old farming family from the Great Southern. The winery and cellar door were established in 2004 and the fine-dining restaurant, Pepper and Salt, is a popular wedding destination and from its elevated position has commanding views of the valley and estate vineyards.

 

The Wines:

The vineyard at Forest Hill winery was the site of the first grape plantings in the Great Southern in 1965, making it one of the oldest operating wineries in Western Australia.  The first vintage, a cabernet and a riesling, was released in 1972.  The cabernet was made by Jack Mann at Houghton Winery in the Swan Valley and the riesling by his son Dorham, at Sandalford.   

Today the wines are made by Guy Lyons and Liam Carmody.  There are 14 wines made at Forest Hill which include riesling, sauvignon blanc, gewurtztraminer, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and Malbec.

The Block Series wines are sourced from old dry-grown vineyards, and the riesling is often the recipient of medals and trophies at wineshows around the country.

 

Wine Tasting:

Positioned beneath the Pepper and Salt restaurant, and built into a stone cellar, the cellar door is open Thursday through Sunday 10.30am - 5pm. 

 

Unique Highlights:

Picturesque setting, dramatic backdrop of Karri trees, fine dining restaurant, exceptional cool-climate wines.

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.

Other grapes in the vineyard include Monastrell, Shiraz, Fiano, and Verdelho.

Ashley is very conscious of soil health and the vineyard is managed with a minimal intervention ethos, creating fruit with great flavour. All grapes are handpicked and basket pressed, with all wines made on the property by Ashley and consultant winemaker, Vanessa Carson. Various different wine making techniques are used including the use of Amphora pots for fermentation, cold soaking on skins and the addition of whole bunches to ferments.

There is a cellar door cafe on the property serving sharing style grazing platters showcasing local produce. The focal point of the cellar door is the grand green door, imported from Fez, Morocco. The Moorish theme of the winery and cafe menu matches the predominantly Spanish/European characteristics of the wines. Ash, Kath and their team take great satisfaction in being involved in the whole process of growing, making and sharing the enjoyment of the wines.
