A warm to hot commencement to ripening resulted in an early start to harvest. However, a cool three week period in March, allowed red berry flavours to develop whilst slowing the rapid grape sugar accumulation.

Fortunately no serious rainfall events occurred during this cool spell and a warm finish to ripening resulted in the 2013 red wines exhibiting ripe varietal characters, integrated tannin structures all matched with a balanced acidity.

Winery Tasting Notes


Rich plum with a violet tint.


Lifted berry fruits, dark cherries with aromatic savoury notes.


The palate is filled with sweet red berry flavours with hints of dark chocolate and olives. It is a well-balanced and structural wine, with soft tannins, youthful acidity and a long fruit driven finish. Integrated with dusty tannins the wine balances all of these varietal hallmarks with a long structured finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, West Cape Howe is the most southerly point, rising some 250 metres above the Southern Ocean. It is thought that the first explorers to this coastline were Dutch seafarers in 1627 aboard their 'Fluyt' class vessel "Gulden Zeepaard" (Golden Seahorse).

The winery is named after this magnificent landmark to pay respect not only to the natural beauty of the region, but also in recognition of the extreme influence of the Southern Ocean on the area's viticulture. The rugged coastline is home to some stunning white beaches, sheltered coves and great rock climbing sites.

West Cape Howe Wines is owned by a partnership including Gavin Berry (until 2004, senior winemaker at Plantaganet), and viticulturist, Rob Quenby. It was founded in 1997 and soon became one of the fastest growing wine brands in Western Australia, now producing around 60,000 cases annually. Over time, it has acquired some of the oldest vineyard resources in the state, giving it unrivalled access to the best and most consistent quality fruit that the cool Great Southern wine region has to offer.

West Cape Howe's driving philosophy is to make delicious wines of harmony, balance, structure and flavour - wines that people love to drink.
