Duke's Vineyard is a retirement project-turned-obsession of Duke and Hilde Ranson.
Fragrant nose of forest flowers. Light, bright colour and soft smooth tannins. Full flavours of plums and spice balanced with elegant French Oak giving a silky finish. A feminine and ‘pretty’ wine.
Enjoy with family and friends. Pairs well with beef and venison.

James Halliday's Wine Companion97
"The colour here is as vibrantly hued as the aromas that waft out of the glass – evident from a foot away. As with the cabernet – this is all things from the Single Vineyard but all things dialled up. Oak. Intensity and voluminous fruit. Gorgeous stuff. Spice and structure."

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

The wine regions of WA sit at the state’s southwest tip. The famed Margaret River region, with its warm maritime climate, lies roughly 200 kilometres south of Perth. Rainfall is high here compared with other Australian wine regions, but it falls mainly during the winter. Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular planting, and winemakers often blend it with Merlot to create Bordeaux-style wines. Margaret River is also distinguished for its Chardonnays, with their high natural acidity and concentrated stone-fruit aromas. Malolactic fermentation and barrel ageing further lend complexity to these special wines. Sauvignon Blanc is also widely planted here and often goes into blends with Semillon. Wine production also occurs in the Great Southern region, which includes the subregions of Frankland River and Mount Barker. Here, they produce floral Rieslings, peppery and elegant Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Other wine regions in this large state include Blackwood Valley, Geographe, Peel, Pemberton, Manjimup, and Swan District.

About the brand Duke's Vineyard
Duke and Hilde Ranson took a somewhat unconventional approach to retirement, deciding that establishing a vineyard in Western Australia’s Great Southern was preferable to your more standard retirement plans. First planted on Duke’s birthday in 1999, Duke’s Vineyard has gone on to become a remarkable success for the couple, winning a swag of awards and accolades for their wines along the way.
It’s still very much a family affair – Duke takes a hands-on role in the vineyard, where Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon is paramount. The cellar door, which was designed by successful artist, Hilde, has become something of an icon in the Porongurup region, with glorious views and Hilde’s artwork on display.
