Visitors to this Estate are greeted by an enormous Australian flag hoisted up onto the tallest flagpole in the country and beautiful Cape Dutch winery buildings set in delicately manicured grounds. This is the domaine of Michael Wright. Yields in this cool and blustery part of Western Australia are naturally low, the vineyards, next door to those of Leeuwin Estate, are ideally situated to benefit from the cool maritime climate.
A perfumed bouquet of cassis, blackcurrants and violets on the nose, supported by layered chocolate mocha and cedary notes. The palate displays sweet dark and red fruits, supported by fine, layered tannins with seamlessly integrated French oak. The wine is rich and concentrated with great length and impeccable balance.

"A delicious fruity and oaky style. Sweet, ripe fruit aromas perfectly poised with the well integrated oak. A lovely weight on the palate with ripe tannins and a wonderful texture supported by a great acidity. Very, long and complex finish." Decanter 2014
