Quite simply, you don’t expect to get this level of sophistication at this price point.'
Ray Jordan (Deep Woods Estate Range)

Good one Ray, you're on the money about the Deep Woods range. Here winemaker Julian Langworthy has been given an opportunity to play, making an unusual blend of Shiraz, Malbec and Grenache. It works a treat though, a seriously tasty, pizza hungry wine at a great price.

Expert Reviews

91 Points - Ray JordanStill not sure why a wine of this quality and style sells for just $20, but hey, who's complaining. Generous, soft and fruity with spicy floral aromas and a thoroughly delicious palate. The balance of sweet supple fruit and fine, chalky, slightly gravelly tannins really hits the right notes to give the wine a personality.
90 Points - David Bicknell - Halliday's Wine CompanionAn eclectic blend of shiraz, malbec and grenache with southern Rhone intent. Hard to view it as that in the context of style, but as a bright, purple-coloured, dark berried shiraz dominant blend - it works a treat.

How's it taste?

Bright fruit dark fruit aromas with hints of aniseed and spice. The burst with flavours displaying juicy plum, dark cherry, red berries and hints of white pepper and spice, supported by French oak. Soft, round tannins and texture and excellent length. A wonderful wine to enjoy now.

How was it made?

The fruit for this not-quite southern Rhône blend of Shiraz, Malbec and Grenache was sourced from various mesoclimates throughout the Walcliffe area of the Margaret River wine region.The ferments were managed with a combination of plunging and pump overs. Some batches were basket pressed and then transferred to large seasoned oak barrels for maturation over 12–15 months.

Who made it?

Deep Woods Estate was founded in the northern end of the beautiful Margaret River region of W.A in 1987. It changed hands in 1992 when the Gould family purchased the winery, and was sold again in 2005. Today, it is part of the Fogarty Wine Group (they also own Lakes Folly, Millbrook and Smithbrook wines). The property nests on a ridge overlooking a sea of Jarrah and Marri trees, hence the name Deep Woods. It boasts 16 hectares of sustainably-managed, low-yielding vineyards segregated into 12 blocks planted to Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Winemaker Julian Langworthy employs traditional and state-of-the-art techniques to craft small batches of wines of impeccable quality under several different labels. The Deep Woods Reserve label is the ultra-premium range made entirely from estate-grown fruit. The Estate range brings beautiful varietal character and vibrancy while offering excellent value for money, whilst the Ebony, Ivory and Harmony label uses estate and locally sourced fruit. Stylistically they range from complex, zesty, nutty Chardonnays through to cassis and chocolate Cabernet Sauvignons displaying Margaret River typicity.
