2015 Willow Bridge Estate Gravel Pit Geographe Shiraz

Willow Bridge Estate

Our Price: $24.99 / bottle (RRP: $33.00) Case: 6 x 750ml

'This is the Willow Bridge flagship wine, matured in French oak (30% new). It has the flavours of Dragonfly, but doubles the depth and intensity of the black cherry and plum fruits, along with that of the ripe tannins.'
96 Points -  James Halliday

  • Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced predominately from the Gravel Pit block which was planted in 1998.

    As the name suggests, the vineyard block had been used previously to excavate gravel to construct the roads within the hills of the Ferguson Valley. Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam.

    Dedicated to the late senior winemaker Simon Burnell

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Fermented in open top fermenters, hand plunged twice daily at temperatures averaging 28 degrees. Winemaking encourages deep and dense structures, but with spice and minerality.

    TASTING NOTES

    Loads of enticing blueberry and dark plums with hints of vanilla and spice with cedar oak hints. A seamless profile of rich dark plums, mixed berry fruits, licorice and toasty oak. The texture is slippery and dense, perfectly matched by fine tannins.

    'This is the Willow Bridge flagship wine, matured in French oak (30% new). It has the flavours of Dragonfly, but doubles the depth and intensity of the black cherry and plum fruits, along with that of the ripe tannins. Because of this, the French oak is less obvious, albeit with a greater percentage of new oak.'
