Gold - Royal Melbourne Wine Awards 2016 (2015 vintage)


Mike Bennie, Halliday Wine Companion ""Succulent with lots of cassis, violet floral lift, mint, eucalyptus and black pepper. Oh yes. This sits on the palate fresh and fine, cinched with lacy tannins and cool with that minty herbal component through a medium-weight flourish of cabernet and a lingering, spicy finish. It nails the variety and delivers it full, albeit with genial restraint and ease of drinking through and through. A wonderful thing to relax into.""

James Suckling ""I like the tobacco and iodine notes here, along with blackberries and tomato leaves. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and structured, with tight and fine tannins. Excellent varietal character showing through, with a long and firm finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.""

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion ""Almost gentle in outlook with its currant, cassis and raspberry flavours, dash of spice and warm bitumen. It's barely medium-bodied with gritty, ripe tannins yet stamped with immediate drinkability."" (2018 vintage)

James Suckling ""Impressive, leafy and light, bright red-fruit aromas here, together with a swathe of spicy oak weighing into the mix of aromas and continuing into the palate where it is subsumed by smooth, redcurrant and plum flavors. So drinkable now, but this will age easily for up to a decade. Screw cap."" (2018 vintage)

James Suckling ""Blueberry and mineral aromas with hints of spearmint follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Some tar, too. Complex and delicious. Drink or hold. Screw cap."" (2016 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review ""Medium to deep red colour with a tinge of purple. The aroma is straightforward, raspberry-ish and bright, and it's frisky and firm on the palate, with some grittiness in the tannins. Fruit drives it. There are slightly chewy tannins to close, and the wine has good length and density. It's well-priced."" (2016 vintage)

Willow Bridge Estate continues to attract acclaim for the relatively newly established wine growing region of Geographe which is located adjacent to its more famous neighbour, Margaret River, in Western Australia. Wine critcs have heralded the winery for producing quality, good value wines. Winemaking is by veteran Western Australian winemaker, Kim Horton.

The Geographe wine growing region is located near the southern end of the Western Australia's Indian Ocean coast, between the emerging Peel region and famous Margaret River – with which its terroir shares several similarities. The best wines grown in this region include fruity Cabernet Sauvignon (often blended with Merlot), gamey Shiraz, rich, citrusy Chardonnay, and grassy 'SSB' blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The region's profile is increasing with several Geographe wineries winning national and international awards annually. At the heart of Western Australia's wine industry, the region supplies more than 10% of Western Australia's wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world. It is now the key grape variety in many first-rate New World wine regions, most notably Napa Valley, Coonawarra and Maipo Valley. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood.

Most Successful Western Australian Exhibitor - Perth Wine Show

Campbell Mattinso
n “Value plus to be had here. It’s just so good to drink. Cherry-berry flavours with choc, clove and gum leaf. It sits just above medium in weight, is ribbed with tannin and while there’s certainly ripeness to the fruit the finish is dry. Very well done.”

Ray Jordan “This is quite a firm style of shiraz with plenty of plummy, spicy characters on the nose. Gets between 10 and 20 per cent new oak and has a freshness and vital palate feel. Good tannin profile here. It’s ripe and generous with a juicy, full palate delivered with slightly medium weight. Has a brilliant, high energy colour.""

The Winemaker
“Fresh lifted Blackberry, licorice and plum, gentle spice with french oak hints. Delicious and textural, sweet plums and dark berries with toasted French oak and long fine tannins.”

Halliday Australian Wine Companion ""Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible.

Shiraz is the name given to the dark-skinned Syrah grape when grown in Australia and selected pockets of the New World. Though genetically identical, the stylistic differences between Shiraz and Syrah are usually pronounced.

Shiraz is so important to Australian viticulture that it is the most planted grape variety in the majority of Australian vineyards and has become virtually synonymous with the country's wine regions, and in particular the Barossa Valley.

""Produced from the famed Gingin chardonnay clone. A lushness but also strong minerality and crunch of texture despite the generosity of stone fruits and quite lavish seasoning of spicy, cinnamon-tinged French oak. Feels energetic and refreshing, with lots of good detail and a fair deal of what the boffins would call complexity."" (2022 vintage)

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate ""The 2022 G1-10 Chardonnay leads with crushed nuts, preserved citrus, some curry leaves and a swathe of orchard fruits, with green apples and feijoa to boot. In the mouth, brilliant intensity shows a profusion of sunshine and fresh air in the vineyard (the fruit is ripe but fresh/clean/restrained). This is routinely a smart wine and very good value for the money. Beeswax and lanolin to close. One of the best G1-10 Chardonnays on release that I have seen.

James Suckling ""Some smokiness on the nose, alongside grilled apricot and pineapple. Butter cream and toast, too. Medium- to full-bodied with a rich and buttery mouth-feel and a flavorful finish"" (2022 vintage)

James Suckling ""Peaches, lemon pith, mango stones, salted butter, flint and cedar notes here. Full-bodied and compact, yet energetic with tangy acidity. Intense, but could do with a little more length. "" (2021 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion ""The acidity punctuates the yellow peach fruit, giving it lift and life. The oak is evident, as in vintages prior (usually a positive feature of the wine), and shapes the fruit in the mouth. It is still very pert (and a touch metallic) at this stage, however will likely settle in a year or so. In the immortal words of Doc (Back to the Future), 'The future isn't written yet, it can be changed'. Who knows. But it's good now."" (2021 vintage)

James Suckling ""Mango, lemon curd, baked apple, vanilla and butter on the nose. It’s full-bodied with bright acidity and a buttery, fleshy texture. Ripe and concentrated."" (2020 vintage)

Cabernet Merlot is a red wine blend that brings forth the best characters of both the varietals used to craft it. The Cabernet Sauvignon renders rich tannins, nice acidity and a great texture to this wine while the plump Merlot brings in juicy fruit flavours. A typical Cabernet Merlot wine is medium-bodied and displays aromas of black fruits and cassis backed with hints of either cedar or vanilla depending on oak maturation technique used. Cabernet Merlot is best enjoyed with food like sautéed shiitake mushrooms, beef roast, venison rump, lamb chops and grilled steak.

The Winemaker “This wine captures the wonderful spectrum of citrus and tropical flavours found across the vineyard. Vibrant and refreshing in style, the Sauvignon Blanc is aromatic and crisp whilst the Semillon adds an extra dimension to the wine and depth to the palate.”

Winemaker Tasting Notes: "Lifted passionfruit, tropical fruits and lime zest with moderate herbaceous notes. Flavoursome palate of passionfruit, sweet pears and nectarine, fresh and textured with a long fine finish."

The Australian Wine "If you love a fine WA Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, then don’t miss the gorgeous ‘Water Dancer’ Geographe example from 5 Red Star Willow Bridge.

Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is a classic white wine blend. It is most widely produced in France (most notably Bordeaux's Graves district), where both Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are well-established varieties. It is also a popular wine blend in Australia (particularly in Margaret River), South Africa, the United States, Argentina. The versatile blend is typically made into crisp, dry wines, but it is also the blend of choice for the world's most prestigious sweet wine style, Sauternes. The blend is endowed with vibrant acidity and grassy aromas by Sauvignon Blanc, and its structure and mouthfeel from Semillon.

Winemaker
“Aromatic blackberry fruit, anise, ripe black plums and bay leaf aromas. Vibrant Mulberry and blackberry fruits, intense flavour with silky long tannin balanced by fine french oak.” (2020 vintage)

The Australian Wine ""The lovely 'Water Dancer' shows off their style. It has aromatic dark fruits of mulberry and black plum; the palate is juicy and plump, with delicious dark chocolate notes and a very light touch of fine French oak."" (2017 vintage)

Halliday Australian Wine Companion ""Many of its wines offer exceptional value for money.""

The Australian Wine ""(Australia's N# 1 Wine Critic James) Halliday listed Willow Bridge among his ‘Dark Horse Wineries of 2013’ and then his ‘Best Wineries of 2014’. The estate has also won Most Successful Western Australian Exhibitor at the Perth Wine Show three times!""

Halliday Australian Wine Companion ""Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible. The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley (in Geograph Bay in Western Australia) which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family’s confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.""

Willow Bridge Estate continues to attract acclaim for the relatively newly established wine growing region of Geographe which is located adjacent to its more famous neighbour, Margaret River, in Western Australia. Wine critcs have heralded the winery for producing quality, good value wines. Winemaking is by veteran Western Australian winemaker, Kim Horton.

The Geographe wine growing region is located near the southern end of the Western Australia's Indian Ocean coast, between the emerging Peel region and famous Margaret River – with which its terroir shares several similarities. The best wines grown in this region include fruity Cabernet Sauvignon (often blended with Merlot), gamey Shiraz, rich, citrusy Chardonnay, and grassy 'SSB' blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The region's profile is increasing with several Geographe wineries winning national and international awards annually. At the heart of Western Australia's wine industry, the region supplies more than 10% of Western Australia's wine.

Cabernet Merlot is a red wine blend that brings forth the best characters of both the varietals used to craft it. The Cabernet Sauvignon renders rich tannins, nice acidity and a great texture to this wine while the plump Merlot brings in juicy fruit flavours. A typical Cabernet Merlot wine is medium-bodied and displays aromas of black fruits and cassis backed with hints of either cedar or vanilla depending on oak maturation technique used. Cabernet Merlot is best enjoyed with food like sautéed shiitake mushrooms, beef roast, venison rump, lamb chops and grilled steak.

Halliday Wine Companion 5 Star Winery

The Winemaker “This wine captures the wonderful spectrum of citrus and tropical flavours found across the vineyard. Vibrant and refreshing in style, the Sauvignon Blanc is aromatic and crisp whilst the Semillon adds an extra dimension to the wine and depth to the palate.”

Winemaker Tasting Notes: "Lifted passionfruit, tropical fruits and lime zest with moderate herbaceous notes. Flavoursome palate of passionfruit, sweet pears and nectarine, fresh and textured with a long fine finish."

The Australian Wine "If you love a fine WA Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, then don’t miss the gorgeous ‘Water Dancer’ Geographe example from 5 Red Star Willow Bridge. Winner of Gold AND the Trophy for Best White Blend of the 2017 Geographe Show, it shimmers with bright, cut-grass and citrus flavours on a vibrantly zesty palate. One for fresh seafood ... enjoy!" (2017 vintage)

Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is a classic white wine blend. It is most widely produced in France (most notably Bordeaux's Graves district), where both Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are well-established varieties. It is also a popular wine blend in Australia (particularly in Margaret River), South Africa, the United States, Argentina. The versatile blend is typically made into crisp, dry wines, but it is also the blend of choice for the world's most prestigious sweet wine style, Sauternes. The blend is endowed with vibrant acidity and grassy aromas by Sauvignon Blanc, and its structure and mouthfeel from Semillon.
