Production Details:

  • Winery Website: Hamelin Bay Wines
  • Vintage: 2019
  • Harvest method: By hand.
  • Vineyard Yield: 3 tons/acre
  • Vineyard notes: Our unique Five Ashes vineyard is one of Margaret River’s most picturesque vineyards. The moderate maritime climate and a north facing ridge of prime gravely loam soils are ideal for premium quality grape growing. The exceptional wine produced reflects these superb natural attributes of our 26 hectare vineyard. The Whites are positioned on a cool Easterly slope with soils varying from prized Forest Grove gravels to Karri loams, whilst the Reds are situated on a warmer North-facing slope beneath the cellar door on deep, dark gravel loams. The Whites exude freshness and elegance, and the Reds have restrained power and depth, both with distinctive and intense characters specific to each particular variety, block and site. From our very first vintage, our wines have won awards thanks to the outstanding terroir influenced by perfect gravel soils, select aspects, and cool moderate maritime microclimate.
