This is a banger. A beautiful wine that whistles a tune of purity - what expression! Red liquorice to boot. Absolutely yes.
- Erin Larkin
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 and riesling.
A perfumed wine that stands out in a crow. The nose is wildflowers and spice. Light, bright colour with berry fruits and cedar like tannins. The palate is filled with seductive plums and a hint of pepper.
Enjoy with family and friends. Would pair with gently cooked calves liver or French bread and pate or cheese.

Critic Scores & reviews
"Cool-climate shiraz, people: get around it! White pepper, exotic spice and red fruit. Abundance and opulence with restraint. A core of intense fruit and fine-structured tannins. This is a banger. A beautiful wine that whistles a tune of purity - what expression! Red liquorice to boot. Absolutely yes."

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.
Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.
Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.
With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.
The wine regions of Western Australia are located in the southwest corner of the state. Among them, the famous Margaret River region boasts a warm maritime climate, situated around 200 kilometers south of Perth. Although it experiences higher levels of rainfall than other wine regions in Australia, the majority of it occurs during the winter months. Margaret River is renowned for its production of Cabernet Sauvignon, which is often blended with Merlot to create Bordeaux-style wines. Additionally, the region's Chardonnays are highly sought after due to their high natural acidity and concentrated stone-fruit aromas. These wines are further enhanced by malolactic fermentation and barrel aging, which lend complexity and depth to their flavor profiles.
In addition to Margaret River, the Great Southern region is also known for its wine production. This region includes subregions such as Frankland River and Mount Barker, where floral Rieslings, elegant Shiraz with peppery notes, and Cabernet Sauvignon are grown. Other wine regions in Western Australia include Blackwood Valley, Geographe, Peel, Pemberton, Manjimup, and Swan District.
Each of these regions has its own unique terroir, resulting in a diverse range of wines with distinct characteristics. From full-bodied reds to crisp whites, Western Australia has something to offer for every wine enthusiast.

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.
