Whispering Hill Vineyard Mount Barker

The Whispering Hill Vineyard in Mount Barker is heaven for Riesling and Shiraz grapes and over looks the Porongurup Mount Ranges to the north east.  This region is an ancient archaeological place. The Porongurup’s don’t have any foot hills and are largely eroded. The very old leached ground helps drain the soil and results in the vines striving to fruit and somewhat paradoxically produce healthy grapes. To the south is the vast cold southern ocean. The next land mass is Antarctica. The ocean breezes have to be some of the cleanest most pristine in the world. Elegant but powerful wines are made from this site.  Cool, windy, often overcast conditions, with very leached laterite and granite sandy soils provide the region with ideal growing conditions for Riesling and Shiraz grapes which ripen showing some of the most desirable elegant but complex flavours and aromas seen in the best wines in the world.

“…the vines, over thirty years old, produce fruit of great intensity & complexity.”

Both wine varieties from this vineyard have been recognised on the world stage garnering international trophies. Fruit from Capel Vale’s Mount Barker vineyard follows the long history of producing award winning wines, beginning in 1986 when the Capel Vale Riesling was awarded the Australian National Dry White Champion – the first Western Australian wine to win this award. The vines on this property produce fruit of great intensity and complexity.
