Plantagenet Lancaster Mount Barker Shiraz

Plantagenet Lancaster Mount Barker Shiraz

Plantagenet Lancaster Mount Barker Shiraz

Plantagenet Lancaster Mount Barker Shiraz is a richly textured and yet elegant cool climate Shiraz, showing fragrant layers of red berry compote, hints of violet, dark chocolate and savoury spice with a firm and structured finish.

Plantagenet was the first winery in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia. The winery has developed an enviable reputation for producing elegant wines with complexity, finesse and balance since 1975. Our aim is to produce the best wine possible. The fruit is sourced from our own vineyards within the Great Southern. Only premium fruit is selected for the Plantagenet range. Once inside the winery the wine is handcrafted and receives optimum attention.
“Deep brick red hues with a rich bouquet of cloves and spice with hints of coffee and cigar box. Ripe plums explode on the palate and are followed by white pepper and middle eastern spices. The fine tannins fill the mouth and the smoky oak finish lasts forever!” John Durham, Winemaker.

The Plantagenet Winery was originally named after the name of the Shire in which their Mount Barker vineyard assets reside – Plantagenet. Early English settlers, who favoured royalist titles, named the Plantagenet Shire.
The Plantagenets were the English royal house which reigned from 1154 to 1399 (Henry 2nd to Richard 2nd), the name coming from the nickname of Henry’s father, Geoffrey, Count of Anjou, who habitually wore a sprig of broom – L. planta genista.
The House of Plantagenet portfolio of wines have all been named in honour of either the Plantagenets family names or family branches or from the regions from where they came.
Hence – ‘Aquitaine’ Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘Lancaster’ Shiraz, ‘Normand’ Pinot Noir, ‘York’ Chardonnay and ‘Angevin’ Riesling.

Plantagenet

“The Plantagenet wines enjoy enormous success. The purity of fruit captured by winemaker Richard Robson, allied to their reasonable prices, illustrate the reasons for this success.
While the Plantagenet wines all come from grapes grown in mature vineyards in Mt. Baker, the Omrah range is made from fruit from younger vineyards, or from bought in fruit. This range also offers excellent value, something that has made them a hit in Australia.

Western Australia

This state is a relatively small contributor to the country’s grape plantings. However it does not stop the state being responsible for some of the finest wines coming out of Australia. This region clearly has a turning point in its wine producing status. Research reports from Californian viticulturalist Professor Harold Olmo, in the 1950s, and the Western Australian scientist Dr John Gladstone, in the 1960s, indicated that the more southern cooler regions of Western Australia where very well suited for production of world quality wines. Now these regions: Margaret River, Great Southern and Pemberton are the major wine producing regions of Western Australia. Margaret River region is now one of the premium regions of Australia and regarded along with Coonawarra and Yarra Valley as one of the three premium Cabernet Sauvignon areas in Australia.

Shiraz

flourish in a range of climates. In the warm to hot climates you can expect extremely intense aromatic, rich, full bodied wines, with hugh fruit (almost sweet) and chocolately tasting. In the more moderate/cooler climates you’re more likely to find structured Shiraz wines with black cherry, pepper and spice characters rather than the chocolate and fruit styles found in warmer climates.
