Overview

The Plantagenet’s were the first truly armigerous royal dynasty of England meaning they were entitled to strike and bear various coats of arms. The arms of this noble, later royal, family, Gules, three lions passant guardant, termed colloquially "the arms of England" were first adopted by King Richard the Lionheart (1189–1199), son of King Henry II of England (1154–1189), son of Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (1113/17–1151).

Expert Reviews

94pts James Halliday - Out of the blocks fractionally more quickly than its Angevin sibling, the floral bouquet first up, the palate round, letting its waist expand with lemon and lime fruit

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Lifted aromatics, musk, fresh citrus nose.

Palate

The palate is quite textural with lime curd, preserved lemon, green apple and pink grapefruit. Skin phenolics add complexity and mouthfeel. A very drinkable young Riesling. Lots of floral notes and complex fruit on the palate, a great value aromatic white.

Food Matching

Chargrilled calamari and fresh garden salad.

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.
