Wine Equip Award for Best Sweet Table Wine – 2017 Moscato

Awarded at the 2017 Geographe and WA Alternative Varieties Wine Show.

Mark & Pippa were very excited to receive the Wine Equip Award for Best Sweet Table Wine for the 2017 Moscato at the recent 2017 Geographe and WA Alternative Varieties Wine Show. The award was presented at the Gala Dinner held at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on Friday 22nd September.

The 2017 Moscato is an excellent example of this style of wine, and the first to be made from a blend of our fruit from both the Vineyard 28 and Wildwater sites.

With a touch of pink hues, this sweet and spritzy style is excellent as an aperitif or will be appreciated by those who like sweeter style wines.

Their 2017 Arneis and 2015 Nebbiolo were also awarded Silver Medals in their respective classes at this Wine Show. This is a second Silver Medal for the 2015 Nebbiolo, showcasing a broad range of recognition from wine judges across Australia.

Vineyard 28 Arneis 2015 – GEOGRAPHE wine region

Wine from between the ocean and the Scarp

GEOGRAPHE wine region lives in the shadow of Margaret River, but it produces some great wines of its own and deserves to be better known.

The region stretches from Harvey in the South and inland to Donnybrook. It includes the City of Bunbury, and the Ferguson Valley. The region hugs Geographe Bay with the cooling afternoon sea breezes being a hallmark of a long stable growing season.Many of the Geographe vineyards were planted in the late 90’s and are now well established and producing wine of consistent high quality. The region excels at Chardonnay and Shiraz, with excellent Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

Lesser known as varieties from Italy and Spain are also making a name for themselves – grapes such as Arneis, Vermentino, Tempranillo, Durif and Nebiolo to name a few.

Vineyard 28 Arneis 2015

Vineyard 28 Arneis 2015 is pale yellow straw colour with aromatic bouquet pronounced floral character and luscious crisp mouthfeel. Arneis is a white Italian variety of grape rarely grown in WA partly because it is considered difficult to grow. Vineyard 28 has the source block of this variety. RRP $22

Cellar Door is OPEN

Vineyard 28 cellar door reopens Saturday 6th February.

As we advised the Western Australian Bush Fires (Waroona Harvey Fire) that commenced on 7th January 2016, came close to Vineyard 28, scarily close. Almost a month later and we are ready to re-open the cellar door.

Saturday 6th February 2016 our cellar door will be open from 10am.

Electricity has been restored, all the cleaning is done and we are ready to welcome you back to visiting us here at the cellar door. The surrounding bush is already showing signs of recovery and it is truly amazing to see the new green shoots appearing.

We’ve commenced vintage with the first harvest of the muscat grapes. Lots of testing will been done on all the grapes re possible smoke issues, and will continue throughout vintage. There is no “one” simple test for this matter, it is subject to many factors, e.g. what stage the grapes were at, their variety, how long they were under smoke and many more factors.

Please be assured we will only be making wine from those grapes that we are 100% confident about. Our fruit at the Wildwater Vineyard in Harvey was not exposed at all to smoke, and nor was the additional Sauvignon Blanc for our Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend.

We are very appreciative of the support shown to us and especially, YOU – our lovely customers who have helped by ordering our wine online.

We look forward to having you visit at the cellar door and welcoming you back to our special part of the world. 

Can’t wait remember we have online wine orders.
