Frankland River Wineries


View Guides
Located approximately 360km south of Perth, Frankland River is one of Western Australia’s best kept secrets. Home to rolling hills, rich and productive farming land, natural forest and bush, the region is fast becoming one of the State’s most successful wine producing regions. Though a diverse range of grape varieties are grown across its 8 wineries, this cool-climate region is most noted for its Shiraz and Riesling. It’s impressive wine show success is a testament to the quality of vineyards and wines of the region.
[Read More]
Wines produced from Frankland River fruit generally have lower alcohol content and are elegant, with intense varietal characteristics. The region’s overall cool climate and long warm growing season ensure the grapes consistently cultivate a delicate intensity and complexity on the vine, indicating that the grapes are a true expression of the terroir.

Between cellar door visits, don’t miss the chance to relax by the pristine Frankland River with a picnic. In warmer months, local swimming spots and watersport activities at Lake Poorrarecup and Lake Nunijup are very popular.

Mike remains in the role of viticulturist and Rob Diletti makes the wines.

The name ‘Abbey Creek’ is a combination of two geological markers at the estate: the creek that runs (in winter) alongside the vineyard; and the view of The Abbey in the Stirling Range, WA’s highest collection of peaks. The vineyards are nestled on the northern slope of the Porongurup range, providing a dramatic backdrop when looking over the vineyard towards the main house.

The Wines
The Porongurup sub-region in the Great Southern is known for producing long-lived rieslings with distinct floral characteristics, and pinots that show bright cherry, pomegranate and red berry characteristics. The wines have been time and again selected for medals and trophies at both regional and national wine shows within Australia, claiming a total of 9 wine show trophies.   

Wine Tasting
Visitors can enjoy the wines on tasting at the cellar door (open 7 days 10-5 ‘when the flag is flying and the sign is out’), an old shearing shed with views over the vineyards and the Kalgan plain. 

Unique Highlights
The view of the Porongurup Range, and the proximity to it.  The wine range is magnificent and concise, the views are picturesque.

Mother & daughter team, Di and Lara, run Perth’s Hills’ oldest continually operating winery, producing small batches of handcrafted reds sold only at the cellar door in the stunning Bickley Valley.

  • Wine Region:Perth Hills
  • Open Days / times:Weekends 1pm to 5pm, public holidays by appointment
  • Wine Variety:Cabernet Sauvignon,Chardonnay,Merlot,Shiraz,Sparkling

Details

  • Facilities:Cellar Door
  • Vineyards:2.5 hectares
  • Winemaker:Lara Bray
  • Established:1974
  • Cases Produced:600 cases
  • Size & Year:Established 1951 - 2000
  • Cellar Door Open:Saturday,Sunday,Holidays

Description

Formerly known as Piesse Brook Wines, Aldersyde is a stunning boutique winery located in the Bickley Valley and the oldest continually operating winery in the Perth Hills.

This is a traditional family winery in the truest sense. Specializing in hand crafted wines from fruit grown entirely on the estate vineyard, practically all the winemaking procedures are done by hand, from picking and sorting the grapes to winding up the hydraulic wooden basket press.

Relatives and friends join in and help at critical times, including vintage and pruning, but Aldersyde is essentially a mother-daughter operation, with Lara looking after the vines and winemaking and mother, Di, in charge of cellar door sales. 

Increasingly, the focus in the cellar is to produce more natural wines, using foot-treading and hand-plunging (pigéage) with pumpovers during fermentation and indigenous yeasts instead of manufactured yeasts and products.

Six wines are produced: Saignée, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Shiraz, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Production is limited to approximately 100 dozen per wine style and the wines are not available for retail elsewhere, making the cellar door experience quite unique.

Wines are available for tasting by appointment at the tiny cellar door, with the gorgeous wine-covered terrace overlooking the vines. Di runs the cellar door but Lara is often also available to chat whilst you savour a delicious glass of wine and Zoe the winery dog entertains the kids.

THE WINEMAKER

Larissa (also known as Lara) Bray is one of the quiet achievers of the Western Australian wine industry and a third-generation vigneron in the Perth Hills.

After a short career as a lawyer in Canberra and London, Lara studied winemaking at Adelaide University and then gained formidable experience by working vintage at iconic Australian wineries - Brokenwood, Mt Mary and Vasse Felix; Chard Farm in Central Otago; then Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Loire, Northern and Southern Rhone, and Barolo.

After working as assistant winemaker at Cape Mentelle from 2004 until 2007, Lara left to work with her mother, Di, at the family winery.

In 2008, Lara joined a distinguished group who have been dux of the Len Evans Tutorial - 'the most exclusive wine school in the world' says James Halliday, and has judged at wine shows throughout Australia and in New Zealand.

THE VINEYARD

The climate in the Perth Hills is typically Mediterranean with cool, wet winters and hot, dry summers, mediated by cooling afternoon sea breezes and night temperatures 2-3 degrees cooler than Perth or the Swan Valley. The climate has been likened to that of the Douro Valley in Portugal. MJT Kalamunda in the Bickley locality is 23.1°C, RH 45%, rainfall 900-1200mm.

Soils comprise underlying granitic quartz clays at depths from half a metre to 3 metres. The top vineyard and the top half of the bottom vineyard are planted on hilltop slopes and comprise gravels with medium to light loam content. The lower half of the bottom vineyard is in a gently sloping valley and consists of mostly loams and alluvial soils. Because of the underlying clay subsoil, soils tend to retain good moisture levels throughout the growing season. Drip irrigation is applied if necessary.

Open seven days a week, from 10am - 5pm, the cellar door also serves as a function centre for weddings and other large events.

The wine labels each feature the iconic Australian Grass Tree, and the icon wines are named after native Australian timbers: Wandoo, Blackbutt, Melaleuca and Jarrah.

Varieties include riesling, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cabernet, malbec, shiraz and a selection of sweet wines (muscat, late harvest and a rose).

Description

Amato Vino are small-batch artisan winemakers based in the Margaret River wine region, Western Australia.

 

The winemaking philosophy is ‘lo-fi’, in that we embrace wild-ferments, minimal adjustments in the winery, gentle handling. Wines are typically unfined and unfiltered. We are hands-on in terms of the grunt work, the care and guidance, but with a hands off approach to the science of winemaking, using little or no inputs and employing traditional processes. An old-school approach yet with a modern flare for creativity and adventure.

 

Established in 2003 by owner/winemaker Brad Wehr, the labels and wine styles have continued to grow, covering traditional Margaret River varietals through to some eclectic and unusual grape varieties and winemaking methods.

 

Our winery is located a few minutes south-west of the Margaret River township. We work with a core group of independent growers who share our philosophy, employing organic and sustainable farming practices.

 

Our wines

AMATO VINO ‘wilds’

 The ‘wilds’ are home to our emerging Mediterranean varieties, micro-batches, skinsy ferments and other eclectic wines. Featuring single vineyards, hand-picks, natural ferments – and incorporating minimal winemaking input and unconventional vessels for fermentation/maturation – this is the wild stuff.

 

Packaged under labels bearing in-house artworks/designs/photography the ‘wilds’ include Teroldego, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Primitivo, Marsanne, Trousseau, Savagnin.

 

AMATO VINO ‘mantra’

The ‘mantra’ series is all about the classic Margies grape varieties, albeit with the Amato Vino lo-fi twist. The emphasis is on vineyard site & fruit purity, working with small fruit parcels to bring out the best from the each site. Wild ferments (open and barrel), no adds, no fining and filtration are all central to the mix.

 

Wines include a Barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

AMATO VINO ‘fusa’

‘Fusa’… the home for our blends (foo-za). Utilising emerging/alternative varieties as the basis for the blends we’re seeking to create juicy, fresh drinkability, yet complex and alluring wines – packed with flavour but oh-so light on their feet. The Bianco and Rosso are fruit-forward, fleshy and flavoursome versions of some of our favourite grape 

varieties and are made for short to mid-term drinking.

 

Private winery tours/tasting are available by appointment, please contact brad@amatovino.com.au for more info
