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 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.

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.

Description

Black Swan Winery and Restaurant sits on a property formerly known as “Gidney’s Corner”.

Husband and wife team, Barry Scrivener and Robyn Meloury purchased Black Swan in 1998 and converted the property to a “restaurant within a winery”. The venue is purposely built for guests to capture fantastic views of vineyards, the Darling Ranges and adjacent rural surroundings. The design and building materials reflect a style and blend of rustic Australian ambience.

The vines were mostly planted in 1941, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Merlot, Chenin & Chardonnay and later, Shiraz. The first vintage in 2001 reaped gold medals for the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc at the 2002 Swan Valley Wine Show.

The panoramic views of the Darling Ranges are matched only by the fresh, seasonal produce on the menu, offering freshly-baked bread served with truffle oil to a drool-worthy red wine-braised beef cheek and seasonal delights. Chef’s gardens are established throughout of the property, providing much of the kitchen’s needs for organic herbs.

Description

In 2005 Naomi and Ben purchased their vineyard in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. They sold grapes to other winemakers whilst completing the organic certification process for their vineyard. At the same time, the pair enjoyed an epic three-year trip of wine tasting and surfing in Europe to discover the spectrum of old-world techniques through which wine can be made without additives.

Naomi and Ben returned to their vineyard in 2009 and Blind Corner began. The winery now owns two Margaret River vineyards, a winemaking facility and a bottling line, all of which are certified organic and biodynamic by Australian Certified Organic. 


The Wines

Fusing old world techniques and new world knowledge, Blind Corner create wines using only natural yeasts and minimal additives. The label is known for its endless experimentation with creative winemaking, for instance air-drying, skins ferments and carbonic maceration. This is done under their constant questioning of, ‘what would happen if we do this?’ Much of the range features Margaret River varieties made in highly original ways, like an early harvest Shiraz, air-dried Cabernet Sauvignon and a full-skins fermented Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend.

Wine Tasting

Taste the wines at Blind Corner’s new cellar door, open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm. Contact the winery for details.

Description

In 1995 Trevor and Lyn Mann decided it was time for a sea change, relocating to Margaret River in pursuit of an adventure in viticulture. With their experience limited to sampling plenty of the product, but armed with a vision and loads of self-belief, they dived straight into their new journey and planted 10,000 young vines of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The first harvest in 1999 was a momentous occasion.

The vineyard follows biological farming principles and the wines are 100% estate grown and made. The team believe it’s the small things that make the big difference and make their wines extra special. These days daughter Bronnley Cahill is in the winemaking driver’s seat.

The Wines
Taking the best of the old world and new world approaches to winemaking, Brookwood Estate makes wines with minimal intervention to capture the essence of their vineyard. The range includes sweet through to dry wines sparkling.
