Expert Reviews

A 55/45% blend, part barrel-fermented, part stainless steel; only Margaret River could produce a semillon dominant blend with upfront tropical fruit, then a long and sustained finish with lemon/citrus brightening the whole palate. Outstanding value. Rating 94 - Drink by 2015, James Halliday, Australian WIne Companion (FEB/2013).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

Capturing the essence of Margaret River, this wine shows bright fruit and palate freshness. Partial barrel fermentation and lees stirring has added extra texture and complexity.

James Halliday ★ ★ ★ ★ 4 Star Winery status

Celestial Bay is the result of Michael and Kim O’Brien’s long standing passion for wine which led them to the Margaret River region in search of a property suitable for viticulture. The perfect location was identified on Metricup Road, Wilyabrup. A former dairy farm, the site provided all the necessary requirements for successful viticulture – good soil, a moderate maritime climate and reliable rainfall.

The property was acquired in 1998 and site works, dams, irrigation and the first plantings of vines were completed in 1999 (a busy year!). Working with vineyard manager Sam Juniper, the O’Brien family has continually improved the vineyard, planting more vines in 2002.

Winemaker Bernard Abbott joined the team in late 2003 to begin production planning for his first full vintage in 2004. Bernard completed his BSc. in oenology in 1986. While most of his experience has been in the Margaret River region, he has spent time working in France. Bernard believes that combining modern winemaking with traditional techniques (hands on, small batches and constant attention to detail) produces the best wine. His range of experience ensures that our philosophy – “a passion for perfection”- is captured in each bottle. - James Halliday.
