  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Made by Andrew Hoadley. Made from fruit selected by Andrew. Whole bunches in the ferment followed by some powerful French oak.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • When Hilde and Ian (Duke) Ranson sold their clothing manufacturing business in 1998, they were able to fulfil a long-held dream of establishing a vineyard in the Porongurup subregion of Great Southern with the acquisition of a 65ha farm at the foot of the Porongurup Range. They planted shiraz and cabernet sauvignon (3ha each) and riesling (4ha). Hilde, a successful artist, designed the beautiful, scalloped, glasswalled cellar door sales area, with its mountain blue cladding. The appointment of Rob Diletti as winemaker will, if it were possible, increase the quality of the wines.

    JANE FAULKNER - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    A local winemaker makes a wine from Duke's fruit each vintage, here styled by Andrew Hoadley of La Violetta fame. 20% whole bunches, open fermenters, left on skins 28 days and aged in French oak, 33% new. Dark garnet; it's super savoury and rich, a little reductive which adds a meaty element to the structured body. The oak rules (it will settle) with toasty nuances alongside intriguing roasted peppers, smoked pimento before leading to the sweet dark plums in the mix. Compelling and different.
