Expert Reviews

Bright, pale straw-green; a touch of grass on the bouquet quickly gives way to an almost fleshy lime juice palate, dropping the pace slightly on the finish; could easily fill in the gaps in the future. Drink by 2018. Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw in colour with green hues.

Aroma

An aroma of spice, green apple with minerally, slate and lemon rind notes and a nuance of citrus blossom.

Palate

Firm, natural acidity carries the length of the palate but balanced by the depth of fruit. Strong citrus flavours with a spicy edge, long finish.

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.
