Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Plush blueberry and plum with a hint of the characteristically regional pepper and spice over laid with subtle oak characters which impart a sweet, vanilla chocolate note. The bouquet will evolve with time in the bottle providing further interest.

Palate

A dense supple, harmonious palate with lovely plush tannins with bright juicy, cherry fruit flavours, finishing with hallmark lingering spicy flavours.

Winemaking Note

The perfectly ripened fruit is simply crushed to closed fermenters, pumped over rather gently to avoid harsh tannins and fermented warm to please the yeast and aid extraction. Pressed gently after an average of 10 days on skins and racked a number of times, to not only clarify the wine but also aerate to accommodate the aging process. The Shiraz is racked to barrel after the malo lactic fermentation is complete. We used 25% new oak, an 80/20 split of French and American oak barrels, aged for 20 months before blending; egg fining, filtration and bottling; which took place March 2012.

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.
