  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • The West Cape Howe Cape to Cape -white label- wines are approachable, fruit driven wines made for enjoying now and over the short term.

    As winemaker Gavin Berry says, 'These wines established our reputation for quality and consistency-year in year out; wines with clean, expressive fruit and compelling value for money.'

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Most of the fruit is from our vineyards in Mt Barker, with a smaller portion from the ever reliable Frankland River region.

    95% Cabernet Sauvignon; 5% Merlot.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A deep, dark crimsony red. Beautifully scented with loads of fragrant, spicy ripe berry fruits and a hint of sweet capsicum. Lovely sweet plum fruit flavours along with some delicious mulberry fruit characters. The wine is well structured with these generous fruit flavours complemented by the chewy, lightly drying tannins picked up from the skin contact during fermentation.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, West Cape Howe was named after a famous coastal landmark nearby. It was founded in 1997 by Brenden and Kylie Smith before being sold to Gavin Berry (ex-Plantagenet) and partners. West Cape Howe source fruit from specific vineyards, and sometimes specific plots, throughout the maritime-influenced Great Southern wine region. Premium parcels of fruit come from their Langton vineyard, planted in 1978. It has some of the most mature vines in the whole Great Southern area. Senior winemaker Gavin Berry prides himself on creating innovative wines that reflect the diversity of the Great Southern region. He makes wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, to name just a few. The wine styles vary from fresh and fruity, under the Western Australian label, to wines with a more regional focus, under the Great Southern label.
