Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose is full of liquorice, leather, chocolate.

Palate

There’s the trademark liquorice on the palate, but you’d never believe this was 16.5 per cent alcohol. It’s not claret – but there’s not a trace of portiness either.

This has all the usual flavour goodies and it rolls along the palate like a summer storm with the traditionally high alcohol giving it a big sweet send-off. As we’ve said before: A wine for heroes.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Peel Wine Region stretches between the coastal areas of Rockingham and 50km south of Mandurah, to inland to the Darling Scarp and shire of Waroona. Part of the Peel Wine Region was originally known as South West Coastal (although never formally recognised) and ran along the coast in the South West from north to Paul Conti Wines (now part of Swan Districts region) and South to Capel Vale (now part of Geographe). The spread of the region from coastal to inland means that the temperature range and soil type is quite different between each area. Wandering on average is the coldest place in the southern wine regions of Western Australia. Although on summer days the temperature often exceeds that of the Peel coastal area and Dwellingup area, the night and winter temperatures are considerably lower. Wandering also has the least amount of rainfall on average compared to the rest of the region with an annual average of 614.5ml* and Dwellingup has the highest average annual rainfall at 1249.1ml*. Soils range from limestone sands to granite clays.

In 1973 the first Shiraz vines were planted, followed by Chenin Blanc and Zinfandel in 1976, and Cabernet Sauvignon in 1979. Other varieties such as Chardonnay, Verdelho, Cabernet Franc and Merlot were planted in 1980.

Additional Shiraz were planted in 1994 and in 2002 we added an extra hectare of Zinfandel, making the total area of land under vine 16 hectares.

The Peel region, with it's closeness to the ocean, limestone soils and Mediterranean climate, is an ideal location for bringing out fruit intensity and adds great regional characteristics to the wine.
