Crimson with purple edges. Crushed dark mulberry and blueberry with lashings of anise, musk and pepper. Impressive fresh black berry fruits, rounded and textured with support of long, fine, dusty tannin.
:There is lots of pepper and spice on the nose and it overlays the black fruit that fills out the palate. There is a feeling of balance with fleshy blackberry vying with red cherry for dominance. Derek Smedley MW 88 points .
Ferngrove is a remarkable success story built on the vibrant dream of a prominent Western Australian south coast pioneering family. In 1996, with nearly 90 years of beef and dairy farming history , Ferngrove founder, Murray Burton decided to move into premium grape growing. He mortgaged the family farm to purchase land at Frankland River, 360 kilometres south of Perth, where he knew the productive soils, pristine environment and temperate Mediterranean climate were ideal for viticulture. The Vines thrived and more land was acquired, leading to the establishment of Ferngrove Vineyard in 1998. In 1999, a 'state of the art' winery was established at Ferngrove and the first vintage was produced in 2000, and the rest they say is history... Ferngrove has established a reputation as a premium wine producer in the Frankland River and the winery is fast becoming recognised for its production of outstanding, cool climate wines from estate-grown fruit
