Plantagenet

Western Australia, western australia Australia

Located in the Mount Barker township, Plantagenet was the first winery in the Great Southern region. Vines were first planted in the late 1960s with the first vintage in 1974. The Plantagenet wines remain some of Western Australia's most classically elegant wines. The proximity of their vineyards to the cool Southern Ocean ensures slow ripening, which in turn enhances the aromatic qualities of the grapes.

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968, English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenets, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia's Plantagenet Shire. Today, Plantagenet's five vineyards of 126 hectares are located to the south and west of Mount Barker on gravelly loam soils over a base of clay, sand or ironstone rock.

Their Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful fine tannins and incredible length, their Riesling remains one of Australia's most highly regarded, just as their spicy and elegant Shiraz continues to garner accolades both domestically and internationally.
