When Hilde and Ian Duke Ranson sold their clothing manufacturing business in 1998, they were able to fulfil a long-held dream of establishing a vineyard in the Porongurup subregion of Great Southern with the acquisition of a 65ha farm at the foot of the Porongurup Range. They planted shiraz and cabernet sauvignon (3ha each) and riesling (4ha). Hilde, a successful artist, designed the beautiful, scalloped, glass-walled cellar door sales area, with its mountain blue cladding. A ‘drought’ year that produced a very light crop. Limited leaf plucking was done on the east side of the vines to enhance ripening. A cool finish ensured a late crop of intense flavour. Gloriously elegant and layered cabernet. Unbelievably vibrant and saturated in colour; almost luminescent fuchsia. Pomegranate and raspberry on the nose. The palate is concentrated and elegant with abundant dark berries and spice, chalky tannins and a core of pastille fruit. Gorgeous stuff. Enjoy with family and friends. Great accompaniment for duck, pork or schnitzel.

The cooler 2019 vintage has given rise to this gloriously elegant and layered cabernet. Unbelievably vibrant and saturated in colour; almost luminescent fuchsia. Pomegranate and raspberry on the nose - the palate is concentrated and elegant with abundant dark berries and spice, chalky tannins and a core of pastille fruit. Gorgeous stuff.
