Stormflower Vineyard

Stormflower Vineyard

Stormflower produces a small range of wines, made exclusively from fruit grown in its 9-hectare vineyard. The vineyard has gradually been converted to an organic farming system, culminating in organic certification in 2015 and the release of its first certified organic wines in 2016.

Stormflower sauvignon blanc 2015 ($20)

A lightly and distinctly fruit-driven savvy that fits the style for the region perfectly. It’s well presented with light tropical and melon notes on the nose and a palate that is quite textured with good persistent fruit concentration. Clean and crunchy in the mouth.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Stormflower chardonnay 2013 ($35)

The aromas are immediately engaging with brioche and stone fruit with a fresh cream and light cashew character. The palate has a rich texture with good fruit concentration and balance with well-weighted oak. Lightly roasted cashew on the finish which is sustained.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 4 years

Stormflower cabernet shiraz 2014 ($25)

Good example of why this combination works so well. It’s produced a very complete wine with excellent structure and fruit persistence. Savoury with a dusty sinewy thread through the warm flesh of blackcurrant and subtle black olive. Sinewy tannins and a dry dusty finish makes for excellent drinking with food.
SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 5 years

Stormflower shiraz 2014 ($28)

Opens with a pronounced cool mint leafy character on the nose which is most likely a vineyard characteristic. It works quite well with the savoury plummy fruit. The palate is medium weight with sinewy tannins and dry finish. A wine for the short to medium term.
SCORE 88/100 CELLAR 5 years

Stormflower cabernet sauvignon 2013 ($45)

Impressive example of Margaret River cabernet. Blackcurrant and minerally black olive on the nose. A hint of graphite and smooth dark chocolate adds to the mix. The palate is smooth and velvety with a lovely depth and fruit concentration that eases effortlessly to a long finish. Medium weight and long.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 8 years
