Willow Bridge Estate have for years been a firm favourite in the United Cellars portfolio, consistently creating wines of quality, strong regional & varietal expressions, pure enjoyment and always phenomenal value for money. A wine of pure and intense varietal character, lifted passionfruit and freshly squeezed lime. Delicious fresh tropical fruits, kiwi fruit and pomegranate. Seamless and running the length of the palate, with snap peas giving a lively edge. A Western Australian stalwart, nothing captures Summer quite like a fresh, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. The Dragonfly is a mixture of bright fruit, energy and clear cut varietal flavours with persistence and reliability. (Winery note)

Locations

Australia

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.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Western Australia

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.

Geographe

After being a part of the Peel wine region and the South west Coastal Plain, the wine region of Geographe was formally established in 1999. This area was named after the ship of a French Explorer, Captain Nicholas Baudin. Located less than two hours drive south of Perth, in Western Australia, Geographe is home to a beautiful landscape surrounded by rural native bush hinterland and beautiful beaches.

In a region spanning of 1,200 hectares there are currently approximately 40 wineries operating in Geographe, all within the four wine producing districts of Geographe: Harvey, Ferguson Valley, Donnybrook, and Capel. These districts produce exciting, dynamic Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Semillon wines that they are well known for. The climate of Geographe is blissfully consistent, with long warm summer days and cool winters, which makes it well suited for growing a various range of grapes.

About the brand Willow Bridge

In the mid-1990s, the Dewar family decided to diversify their portfolio of agricultural farmland in Western Australia. They took an interest in the wine industry and purchased a property in Geographe's Ferguson Valley in 1996, planting vines a year later. The 60 hectares of vineyards were established in 1997 and sits high on the western watershed of the Darling Ranges. The vineyard is 25km from the coast and receives the cooling afternoon sea breeze during summer. At an elevation between 230 and 280 meters, the estate is generally a few degrees cooler than the coastal plain, with ripening times similar to the cool southern parts of the neighbouring Margaret River wine region. Initial plantings of the classic French varieties of Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, have since been bolstered with small blocks of Viognier and Tempranillo. Today, Willow Bridge Estate is in the safe hands of Senior Winemaker Kim Horton and Assistant Winemaker Dougal Herd. After winning the 2016 Geographe Wine Show Trophy for Excellence in Winemaking, these two and the estate have a bright future ahead of them. Willow Bridge continues to produce a wide range of wines from primarily estate-grown fruit and is consistently noted by wine critics as being 'best value for the money', and 'superb wine at affordable prices'.
