Gavin Berry celebrates his 25th Vintage in the Great Southern wine region of WA! 

"After moving to the Great Southern in the late 1980’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. It is a region that offers a great lifestyle as well!”

James Halliday's Top Value Wines Under $20.00! 

In the February/March 2015 edition of James Halliday's Wine Companion magazine, our 2014 Riesling and the 2013 Cabernet Merlot were reviewed in the supplement, 'Top Value Wines Under $20.00'.

James gave the 2014 Riesling 96 Points and wrote, 'Everything about the wine screams quality, and puts beyond doubt the ability of Great Southern to produce superb riesling when made with the skill evident here; intense varietal citrus blossom aromas and flavours, the acidity a strand of stainless steel wire running through and providing the structure for the endless finish.' 

He gave the 2013 Cabernet Merlot 94 Points and wrote, '...a fragrant bouquet of blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit, which in turn leads onto a supple, medium-bodied palate, awash with delicious cassis tempered by some cedar ex French oak, together with fine-grained tannins.  Notwithstanding the low price, some seriously good fruit has been used to make this wine.'
