    Forest Hill

    Forest Hill Vineyard is situated to the west of Mount Barker in the Great Southern. The vineyard has a unique place in the history of Western Australia’s wine industry, being the first cool climate vineyard planted in the state. Following extensive research throughout the South-West, a site was chosen on the property owned by Tony and Betty Pearce and in 1965 a two hectare vineyard was planted.

    Their Block wines are made from small, carefully selected parcels of the best old vine fruit from the Forest Hill Property including the original 1965 vines. Cane pruned and hand harvested, these special blocks are very low yielding due to age and relying only on natural rainfall. If the vintage proves to be challenging for a variety, they will not make a Block wine that season. The Block wines are powerful yet refined and elegant, and will reward cellaring.

     

    Tasting notes:

    Bright straw in colour with green hues. Lifted aromas of jasmine and lime blossom. The palate is zesty with fresh lime and slate. It has a steely structure that is well balanced by its natural acidity leading to a long and mineral finish.
