Nominated for Wine of the Year - 98 Points

Nominated for Wine of the Year - 98 Points

2017 Reserve Chardonnay 
In the latest edition of Winestate Magazine our Chardonnay has been awarded 98 points and is in the running for Wine of the Year. We are very proud of this wine and it’s string of accolades. The pristine fruit is intense and layered with minerality, smoky oak and linear acidity which form a taut framework that hallmarks future greatness. 

A still amazingly youthful, fruit driven style with lovely flow and balance of pretty pear and stone fruit varietal characters. The acid backbone ties it all together.
98 Points Winestate Magazine 2021

Hint of bay leaf, snappy green apple and grapefruit to both nose and palate. There’s a terrific Margaret River purity of fruit expression. Purity without being a zinger. Some apple skin bloom and a vinous, wild lift to the finish. Very tightly wound, but pure and long!” 
98 Points Decanter Magazine - Exceptional

Big, bold grapefruit, peach and apricot aromas here with a gently flinty and toasty edge. The palate has a very composed, seamless and fresh feel with juicy, focused and smooth-honed peaches and lemons.” 
James Suckling

Vintage 2021

Vintage 2021

It was a wild ride to the finish line here in Margaret River!

We harvested our Cabernet Sauvignon over the weekend of the 9th and 10th of April with multiple cyclones brewing off the north west coast. We were fortunate to have our fruit in good condition, with full flavour and ripe tannins ready for harvest. We assembled a small team of locals to assist with our handpick and conditions couldn't have been better, it was clear skies and sunshine until the last bucket was lifted. Cyclone Seroja ended up crossing the coast the following evening, bringing 58mm of rain to the estate over 24hrs. The region experienced one of its most abrupt ends to vintage we can recall. We are very thankful to all those who helped us wrap up vintage 2021.

98 Points - Artizan Rare Muscat

98 Points - Artizan Rare Muscat

Continued success for our Artizan Rare Muscat.  Esteemed wine writer Huon Hooke of the Real Review recently awarded the Artizan Rare Muscat '98 points' and classified it as one of Australia's best muscats. 

"Deep tawny-amber colour with a yellow-green rim, very viscous when swirled in the glass - the signs of a wine of great age. The bouquet is fresh and yet shows great depth of aged muscat character. It's very concentrated, profound and ultra-rich on the palate: tremendous persistence and super-satisfying to sip. A glorious old liqueur muscat of sublime character."      98/100

Watch our latest video - Wilyabrup Valley

The Wilyabrup Valley is a place of unparalleled beauty where the forest meets the sea.

We have been farming this land since 1968. The Wilyabrup brook carves its way through the property and offers a vital source of water for the farm and habitat for wildlife.

In 1975 we established a 4.5ha vineyard. The vines are now mature - forty five years old, non-irrigated and planted on some of the finest gravelly loam soils in the Wilyabrup region.

The quality of the fruit being produced is exceptional, with organic vineyard practices producing grapes with perfect balance, intense flavour and fine ripe tannins - essential building blocks for great wine.

Visit us… we are open daily, we would love to share more of our story with you on your next visit to Gralyn Estate

The perfumed aromas are deliciously seductive...

A new release from our cellar...

2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Available to taste and purchase from Cellar Door or online via our website.

“There is a degree of understatement about this outstanding cabernet that I find really appealing. The fruit is intense, but not overpowering. It sits beautifully on the palate and, with the chalky tannins and fine-grained oak, builds inexorably to a very long finish. The perfumed aromas are deliciously seductive. Lovely wine.” 96/100
