Glenarty Road

Glenarty Road

Producing handmade wines from grapes grown on a fifth-generation family farm in Karridale, Margaret River. This small producer follows sustainable practices from ground to glass, resulting in wines with a true representation of site. The recently rebranded wines are looking very encouraging.

 

Glenarty Road Karridale Rosé 2016 ($23)

Raising the Bar
This is a little bit wild and a little bit funky. Aromas of freshly turned rose beds with a lift of strawberry and wild rhubarb crumble. The palate is crisp and clean but with a textural element and deep flavours. Dry finish and a fine persistence. Really nice take on the style.
SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Glenarty Road Karridale Fume Blanc 2016 ($30)

So, you take the standard sauvignon blanc and then work it with some oak. The result is something quite special in some cases. This is one of those cases. Has a smoky savoury character on the nose and the palate with deeper stone fruit and creamy tropical tones. Tonnes of intensity palate character that lingers long but with precision.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 5 years

Glenarty Road Karridale shiraz 2015 ($30)

Impressive shiraz from this southern Margaret River location. Has an intense white pepper note swirling with the dark black fruits. A decent splash of oak and a little licorice adds further complexity. Smooth and seamless mouthfeel with a tarry toasty oak influence. Strong influence of the soil here with a gravelly loamy character
