Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Plummy, mulberry, blackberry notes, a pinch of tarragon and thyme, along with a whisker of vanilla derived from its time in oak.

Palate

Generously proportioned with smooth, finely polished tannins, balanced acidity and lively flavours that are the hallmark of the variety.

Cellaring Potential

Great balance; an easy drinking style with depth of flavour, made for immediate enjoyment but also offers some short term aging potential.

Winemaking Note

Fruit was harvested when flavour ripe which, with sugars ranging between 23.5 and 25.5 brix. Fruit is simply crushed, fermented warm, pressed gently after an average of 10 days on skins, racked a number of times before going into barrel after malo lactic fermentation was completed. We used 25% new oak, an 80/20 split of French and American oak barrels, aged for 20 months before blending, filtration and bottling which took place May 2010. A blend of 75% Cabernet, 20% Merlot plus a dash of Cabernet Franc.

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.
