DUKE'S VINEYARD "Single Vineyard" - Shiraz - Porongurup, Great Southern - Australia

A nail-biting finale to the 2022 growing season saw the vineyard lashed by fierce winds and rainy squalls. Yet the shiraz slowly developed both an array of dark fruit aromatics and lush, juicy fruit weight and developed fine and complete tannins, highlighting the granitic minerality of the site and the complexity formed by farming in a marginal yet consistent site.

Critique Review

“A fruit-driven style, quite straightforward in its delivery of shiraz, showing off red- and black-berry fruitiness, sweet spice, some cinnamon and fennel spice elements, a touch of sea spray and truffle. Very pleasing, satiny texture with a building puckering grip. Good length of flavour too. All up, successfully delivers a pleasing, easy drinking, not particularly complex but medium-weight, spicy, bright fruited shiraz expression. Dig in.”

Vineyard Info

Duke’s Vineyard is situated at the western foot of the heritage-listed, ancient granite Porongurup Range in the Great Southern Wine Region. Our site currently consists of 10 hectares of Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz vines — varieties beautifully suited to the region. The original owner, Duke Ranson, primarily chose the site by way of aesthetics: stunning views, a unique position at the western foot of the ancient range, and serenity; but also for practicality: water supply that includes a pure, spring-fed dam and run-off from the national park, and soils with good drainage yet ample water retention ability. In this captivating corner of the Great Southern, where the cool climate and unique geological makeup converge, Ben and his team are continuing Duke’s tradition of growing the finest quality fruit to craft wines of exceptional quality and distinction. The Magpie Hill Reserve Shiraz is planted in the centre of the vineyard and the fruit comes from the crest of the vineyard where the vines have to work a bit harder to find water with their root. The soil and cool climate create the soft and juicy characteristics of our Porongurup Shiraz.
