Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Ripe and beautifully lifted on the nose with dark cherry, olive, almond and warm mushroom aromas, it's juicy and supple on the palate displaying elegant mouthfeel and silky tannins. Soothing and comforting with a lovely savoury finish." (2021 vintage)

James Suckling "Fragrant nose of cherries, pomegranates, thyme, violets and orange zest. Some cloves and peppercorns, too. Medium-bodied with soft tannins and a juicy core of wild fruit and spice." (2021 vintage)

Aaron Brasher, The Real Review "Lifted and straightforward cherry, raspberry and spice aromas. Red fruits, woodsy and spice flavours, not complex, but generously flavoured and easy drinking. (2021 vintage)

Stuart Knox, The Real Review "Medium, bright ruby colour from core to rim. Red and black forest berries, hot stones and sage aromatics. The fruit enters the palate quite concentrated and sweet, as it flows a charry note appears whilst fine tannins grip and drive." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "Attractive red-cherry and raspberry aromas here with background, reductive kick and light oak spice. The palate has a vivid core of red cherries and red plums." (2020 vintage)

Western Australiam winery, Plantaganent is acclaimed internationally for its consistently highly-awarded, quality wines produced from its five vineyards located in the cool climate region of the Great Southern. It is known for its highly aromatic riesling, tangy citrus-tinged chardonnay, exceptional Rhône-style shiraz and suberb cabernet sauvignon. The five estate vineyards are overseen by Chief Viticulturist Jordan Ellis whose philosophy is sustainability and remaining true to the terroir of the region.

The Real Review "Plantagent is a pioneer of the Great Southern region of Western Australia with vineyards first planted in 1986 and the first commercial winery established in the region. Celebrated for its rich heritage, the winery is owned the Lionel Samson family, the oldest family owned business in Western Australia established in Fremantle in 1829. Plantaganet has five vineyards in the Mount Barker sub region each with the unique characteristics, ancient soils and a cool maritime climate cretaing expressive wines of provenance, quality & prestige. "

James Halliday, Halliday Australian Wine Companion "Plantagenet has honed its flagship varieties into a distinct Great Southern wine style; a depth of lively flavour, seamless elegance and natural purity"

The Great Southern is emerging as a wine region of international significance and reputation. It is the largest wine growing region in Australia and is the second largest producer of grapes in Western Australia. It is a landscape of forested cliffs and resplendent mountain ranges, grazing pastures and towns steeped in history. The regional climate ranges from the coastal, maritime subregions of Albany and Denmark to the inland, continental subregions of Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River. The predominant soils are similar to those of the Margaret River region - either lateritic gravelly sandy loams (marri country) or sandy loams deriving directly from granite and gneissic bedrocks. Near perfect conditions for grape growing has lured some of the most creative and talented winemakers to call this land their home and become part of its ancient story.

The region is known for committment to be sustainable, and organic, and is attracting some of Australia’s best winemakers. In 2023 the region dominated the Halliday Wine Companion Awards with its Top Rated 2023 Rieslings winning 10 of the top 40 awards. Other varietals from the region also received exceptional ratings of 97, 96 & 95 points.

Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, now produced in wine regions all over the world, including western Germany, northern Italy, Chile, South Africa, Australia and, perhaps most notably, California, Oregon and New Zealand.

The essence of Pinot Noir wine is its aroma of strawberry and cherry (fresh red cherries in lighter wines and stewed black cherries in weightier examples), underpinned in the most complex examples by hints of forest floor. Well-built Pinot Noirs, particularly from warmer harvests, also exhibit notes of leather and violets, sometimes approaching the flavor spectrum of Syrah.
