Overview

We endeavour through meticulous viticulture and wine production, sympathetic to the prevailing vintage conditions to produce a Cabernet that will express the characters of the grape in harmony with the qualities of the place. Winemaking is geared towards producing a wine that is harmonious and complex by fermenting with gentle maceration, some long skin contact time, but largely a hands off approach and of course a moderate use of quality, fine grained French oak. Small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec were also used this year to provide roundness and complexity.

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.
