Overview

Over the years, Willow Bridge have recognized that certain sections within their estate vineyard blocks have special qualities. They make The Estate Series wines from these sections to provide a snapshot of how the grape varieties they grow best express a sense of their unique corner of the world. Each wine’s name is inspired by that part of the estate in which its grapes were grown.

They are so proud of these sections of vineyard that they have highlighted them on each wine’s label.

Expert Reviews

A full-bodied and complex rendition of tempranillo; black cherry, anise, earth, spice and tannin all thump the drum of this wine. Great with a flame-grilled slab of beef Spanish style. James Halliday, Rating 94, 28th July 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Tempranillo hails from the inland central and northern regions of Spain and across into Portugal, where it is favoured partly for its early ripening so as to avoid any early autumn rains. Here in the hills of the Geographe region we rarely have to worry about early rains. We have found, however that our combination of moderate temperatures with high sunshine hours on the ‘Solana’ – the sunny side of the hill – provides us with the perfect conditions for growing Tempranillo with classic dark-cherry and rich, earthy characters.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible. The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family’s confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.

From the release of their very first wines, their efforts were quickly rewarded with critical acclaim, wine show success and most importantly, glowing feedback from wine lovers.
