Wine Summary Image

VINTAG E 2018

Typical cool climate conditions prevailed throughout vintage with steady even temperatures, no significant spikes or drops in temperature with bright and clear days. Cool clear nights and crisp dewy mornings maintained acid levels and

enhanced the fruit aromatics. The wines show good intensity of flavour with good levels of acidity balancing the punchy fruit flavours across the spectrum. A long cool ripening period with little weather pressure crafted a good vintage

across the varietals.

WINEMAKING

Machine harvested, destemmed and crushed, fermented in closed fermenters, pump overs twice daily, pressed to tank for MLF, matured in a combination of oak barriques and stainless steel tank, racked and returned together,

matured for 18 months before being blended, filtered, fined and bottled.

Expert Reviews

92 Points (+ Top Value) - "Lifted spice and blue fruit aromas, there's some dried herb action as well. Really bright and youthful flavours of blueberries and spice, it's a mid-weighted wine driven by a core of pure fruit and balanced out very nicely with firm tannins and a decent drive of acid." - Aaron Brasher, The Real Review

Silver Medal - "Dark crimson. Deep mulberry fruit with cinnamon spice. Palate rich and concentrated with firm, grippy tannins." - 2021 International Wine Challenge

92 Points - "This is sweetly ripe and elegantly perfumed, showing Black Doris plum, clove, vanilla and roasted nut aromas on the nose, followed by a flavoursome palate displaying fleshy texture and silky tannins. At its best: now to 2028." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2021.

Winery Profile

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
