Vineyard - Plantagenet Wines was the first winery in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia and has developed an enviable reputation for producing premium quality wines since 1975. Our wines have achieved international recognition for their amazing depth of flavour and structure. The style of our wines are suited to a diverse range of cuisine, due to their elegance, finesse and incredible balance.Winemaking - The grapes are harvested during the cooler temperatures at night with just the free run juice and first pressings kept for our Riesling. The crystal clear juice is racked off lees, inoculated with a neutral yeast strain that can handle cold temperatures (10-14C), then once fermented the wine is gently cleaned up for an early bottling. Winemaking is kept simple and minimal, with gentle handling ensuring preservation of fruit and vineyard qualities as much as possible. The desired outcome is to produce a vibrant, fresh wine with clean lines and great length that will age for 10 - 20 years developing wonderful toasty, honeyed characters that compliment the natural fruit characters.
