Just released 2019 Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon

My goodness what a bumper release this is. The critics have had to raid the thesaurus to find even more superlatives than usual for these wines and we are delighted to be sharing them with you. 


"The mention of Houghton clone in Wilyabrup is important, for the particular way that it expresses itself: supple, succulent, red fruited and powerful; it imbues the wines with grace and ease. So too, this release. This has all these attributes, layers of pomegranate, raspberry, red licorice, salt bush, cassis and peppercorn. A beautiful wine, with a proven track record for graceful ageing. This vintage will be no exception."

- Halliday Wine Companion, 96 points

"The 2019 Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon is juicy, bright and beautiful. The style at Fraser Gallop errs toward earlier picks, although the 14% alcohol on the label coupled with the ripe fruit in the mouth suggests that, in this cool year, picking was "when ripe." This is a delicious wine that routinely offers brilliant value-for-money drinking and a very elegant Cabernet experience."
- Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 95 point

Just released 2021 Parterre Chardonnay

My goodness what a bumper release this is. The critics have had to raid the thesaurus to find even more superlatives than usual for these wines and we are delighted to be sharing them with you. 



Winner - James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge GOLD

WA Good Food Guide Top 25 Wines of 2022

"Pristine, pure and very fine-boned house style of Chardonnay coupled with the cooler year that was 2021, and we are met by a wine with poise, precision and finesse in spades. What a beauty the 2021 Parterre Chardonnay is. Juicy, glass-shard acidity is couched in very soft, enveloping orchard fruit, and spooling out through the finish is a string of briney acidity. This is a gorgeous wine, perhaps shorter lived than some of its predecessors, but it will never hang around long enough for us to find out."

- Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 95 points

"Plenty of perfume, a sort of thyme and lavender thing, cashew and almond, a little spicy oak. It’s tight and zesty, lime and pink grapefruit, maybe some green apple, intense acidity, a fine powdery/flinty texture, and a tight and racy grapefruit finish of excellent length. A lot of energy and vigour, and best with a year or so more in bottle to settle."

New release Palladian wines

We are very pleased to announce the release of our 2021 Palladian Chardonnay and our 2019 Palladian Cabernet. Both wines have been exciting wine judges and critics alike with their unique Wilyabrup characteristics. 


Made with fruit from 23-year-old Gingin clone vines, the 2021 Palladian Chardonnay was handpicked, whole-bunch pressed, wild fermented in French puncheons (100% new) and matured for 10 months. One hundred percent new oak may sound like a lot, but in the case of this wine, the power of the fruit has absorbed the oak, leaving not a trace save the texture and enhanced spice in the mouth.    

"This is marvellous— The low-alcohol, earlier-picked style of the Palladian (12.5% alcohol this year) brings a level of finesse and precision that, in this glass, makes for mouthwatering drinking. An exemplar wine that shows elegance and tension." - Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 97 points

"Sea spray, spicy biscuit ginger oak, almond and crème brulée, ripe lime and pink grapefruit. Intense and concentrated, flinty with some creamy gloss, tangy preserved lemon flavours, green apple, tight and very long. No shortage of drive and structure here, that’s for sure. It should be quite something with a few more years in bottle."
- The Wine Front, 95+ points


A very pretty aromatic wine redolent with dark cherry, boysenberry, Doris plum and spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. The body is a medium-bodied and colour pale crimson. The balance and seamless nature are extraordinary given that it’s 100 % pure Cabernet Sauvignon.

Soft, plush and long with blackcurrant, plums and rhubarb on the palate and a finish that is extraordinarily long. A seductively textured wine with soft papery tannins.

"What a lovely wine. The 2019 Palladian Cabernet Sauvignon has the three P's to success: poise, perfume and precision. I don't think that's how the saying goes... but it should. The mid-palate fruit is gently fleshy and satisfying, and everything is in place in this supremely elegant wine." - Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 95 points

"A juicy and balanced cabernet sauvignon with redcurrant, currant bush and rose petal. Medium to full body. Medium, round tannins and a focused finish."                        - James Suckling

Margaret River edges ahead of Coonawarra in cabernet

The world’s most prestigious wine publication has suggested Margaret River now leads the nation in its signature cabernet sauvignon.

The report, from the latest issue of Decanter magazine, said the Margaret River reds now eclipsed even those produced in South Australia’s Coonawarra region.

Wine writer Sarah Ahmed sampled wines from Xanadu, Woodlands, Domaine Naturaliste, Capel Vale and Fraser-Gallop, among others.

She said the strength of cabernet from Wilyabrup was a strong argument for official recognition of the subregion.

Recognition of Wilyabrup as an official subregion has seen a divergence in views within the Margaret River wine industry, with the Margaret River Wine Association not supporting a push by a core band of Wilyabrup producers to get the official classification.

MRWA chief executive Amanda Whiteland said cabernet sauvignon was the world’s most popular variety.

“It is great that highly regarded wine magazine Decanter and wine critic Sarah Ahmed recognises Margaret River as a first port of call for top-value New World Cabernet,” she said.

Fraser-Gallop Estate owner Nigel Gallop told the Times the recognition strengthened the case for Wilyabrup’s official listing as a subregion.

Fraser-Gallop’s cabernet was scored in the top 10 of the wines reviewed.

“The main point was the strength of Margaret River generally,” he said.

“It was a very, very strong endorsement of the Margaret River region.”
