2013 West Cape Howe Tempranillo Notches up its Second Trophy!
Out of a blind tasting of approximately 200 wines, the selection of the West
Cape Howe 2013 Tempranillo for this Trophy illustrates what a stunning example
it is of this Spanish variety that is being produced so successfully in
The 2013 West Cape Howe Tempranillo also received a Trophy at the Perth
Royal Wine Show 2014 for BEST DRY RED VARIETAL in Class 55.
Managing Director and Winemaker Gavin Berry said, 'We're thrilled with the success of
our 2013 Tempranillo; of all the 'alternative' varieties we see come through
the winery, it's almost always the stand out. It's a wine we love making as we
get to play around with the excellent parcels of fruit from both the Perth
Hills and Frankland, both areas clearly suited to this variety. It's also
a very food friendly wine and it's a style we love to drink! My congratulations
go to the guys in the vineyards and the team here at the winery."

Thank you Henrik!

with a fantastic rating of 96 POINTS
James wrote, ' From the oldest vines on the estate-owned Langton Vineyard, matured in French oak for 18 months. Good hue and depth; this is unreservedly full-bodied, but retains juicy cassis/blackcurrant fruit held in a tight embrace of ripe tannins and quality oak. Great value. Drink to 2036.'

It's Gavin Berry's 25th Vintage!
"After moving to the Great Southern in the late '80's for what was expected to be perhaps a two year stint, I am now in the midst of my 25th vintage! All because I haven't found anywhere else that delivers what the Great Southern can; an ideal region for viticulture and winemaking, producing a wide range of varieties and wine styles (especially Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc). It is a region that offers a great lifestyle as well!" Gavin Berry
Please join with everyone at West Cape Howe in congratulating Gavin on his wonderful achievement!
