Expert Reviews

94 Points - James Halliday - Top 100 WinesWillow Bridge nailed this blend many years ago. Not only do the varietal flavours always present themselves very well, but do so with a grand gesture. They are really intense.

How's it taste?

Punchy aromatics of passionfruit and pomegranate, fresh green herbs and citrus. Flavoursome and generous passionfruit and green melon finishing with a clean and long chalky mineral finish.

How was it made?

Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from our Forrest and Power blocks which were planted in 1998. Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight westerly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
The season for the Geographe wine region was cool and dry. The five months until the end of January had yielded little rain, about 70mm less than the same period last year The cooler weather also disrupted flowering and fruit set resulting in much smaller bunch sizes and high incidence of hen and chicken, especially in Chardonnay. The January 2019 average temperature of 21.3 was two degrees Celsius lower than the 23.3 of 2016. Ideal weather for stunning white wines.


Fresh, clear juice is fermented in tank to retain pristine fruit aromas and palate delicacy with a variety of cultured yeast. Temperature is allowed to peak at 16 degrees celsius, but thereafter maintained at less than 15 degrees celsius.

Who made it?

Two hours south of Perth in the Ferguson Valley sub-region of Geographe is where you’ll find Willow Bridge Estate. Jeff and Vicki Dewar bought the vineyard in 1996 and enlisted the expertise of Kim Horton and Dougal Herd to create premium wines that are exceptional value for money. In 1997 they planted 100 acres of wine grapes – and held their breath. Then another 50 acres were planted in 1998, making Willow Bridge the biggest planting in what was then a largely unknown region. The vineyard is sited high on the western watershed of the Darling Ranges, with the vines enjoying spectacular views over the coastal plain, and across the waters of Geographe Bay to Cape Naturaliste. The vineyard is 25km from the coast as the crow flies, and receives the cooling afternoon sea breeze during summer. At an elevation between 230 and 280 meters, the estate is generally two degrees or more cooler than the coastal plain, with ripening times similar to the cool southern parts of the neighbouring Margaret River wine region.
