We are pleased to announce that our 2012 Plantagenet Shiraz and Cabernet have now been unleashed into the wine-loving world!
These wines are incredibly aromatic and full of beautiful fruit flavours; they exemplify the cool climate complexity that can be achieved in the Great Southern and is being acclaimed the world over.
Although Shiraz has long been heralded as our flagship red variety, we are sure that you'll agree - our Cabernet is world class and is a wine of many layers. Enjoy!
Plantagenet Wines recieved two Gold Medals in the recent Scoop magazine tasting.
See below for the reviews and scores.
Plantagenet 2012 Riesling 94pts – Gold Medal
This was star of the Qantas Wine Show of Western Australia with three trophies, including wine of the show, and marks a return to form for Plantagenet Riesling. It has intense lime blossom aromatics, lemon-lime flavours with a hint of Granny Smith apples, seamless structure and dry chalky acid to finish. Long, deep and classy.
Plantagenet 2010 Shiraz 93pts – Gold Medal
In most years, you can expect this to be one of the state’s finest shiraz. This vintage is bright with peppery, savoury, briary characters on the nose and palate, and hints of blueberry, mint and spice. A firm tannin backbone is balanced by smooth fleshiness.
