Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A savoury dusty aroma of liquorice and cocoa powder with ripe prune/plumy fruit aromas reflecting the very warm vintage.

Palate

A lush, plump, soft and supple wine that seeps across the palate, with fleshy fruit notes of prunes and stewed cherries, and a dash of spice finishing with structured silky fine tannins and a soft warm finish.

Cellar Potential

Start drinking end of 2009 for full enjoyment and should provide pleasant drinking for three or four years.

Winemaking Notes

Fermented warm in closed fermenters then pressed gently. Each batch is kept separate and aged in a combination of stainless steel tank and oak barrels. Microoxidation is employed to some degree with the wines left in stainless steel tank to harmonise the structure, from there oak is introduced to provide a nuance of oak flavour. The blend was assembled and bottled in April 2009.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
