Malbec adds another dimension to win trophy at Perth Royal Show

Guided by viticulturist Tim Quinlan we chose to plant malbec instead of merlot as a blending variety. Recent results have endorsed this decision with our 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec being awarded the trophy at the 2020 Perth Royal Wine Show for the Best Dry Red Blend. The malbec vines thrive on the gentle, south-facing slope supported by granitic, loamy soils. Now mature vines, they are producing a large volume of high-quality fruit. This has resulted in us being able to make a straight Malbec, leaving sufficient to blend with our Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon each year. Malbec is a deep purple wine variety characterised by fruit flavours of black cherry, plum and blueberry. In the Wilyabrup sub region...

Scorpions vie with grapes, wildflowers and macro-invertebrates

Grace Farm has been part of the Augusta Margaret River Shire’s “Our Patch” programme for a number of years and we look forward to the annual visit from Cowaramup Primary Year 6 class in early spring.

Introducing the 2018 Malbec

We are excited to let you know the highly anticipated 2018 Malbec is now available in cases of 6 and 12 bottles. Only 128 dozen were produced so this wine won't last long.Malbec is a great wine to have in the Grace Farm range to provide an early drinking red, which generally has much softer tannins than the powerfully structured cabernet sauvignon based wines.  Malbec is a deep purple wine variety that is characterised by fruit flavours of black cherry, plum and blueberry. In the Wilyabrup sub region we find that the wine finishes with a spicy character which shows through the medium bodied tannins. Due to the medium tannins, Malbec pairs well with leaner red meats such as pork, beef sirloin...
