Ferngrove Wine

James Halliday ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Star Winery status for the eleventh consecutive year (2015 Australian Wine Companion Edition)

The Ferngrove Wines team aim to craft outstanding wines which reflect our pristine region. From Frankland River we bring you exceptional quality, value and enjoyment no matter where you are.

Selected in 1998 by founder Murray Burton for its favourable viticultural location 90 kilometres from the coast, Great Southern’s valleys and slopes have the rare combination of rugged, classically West Australian ancient soils and the cooling influence of the converging Southern and Indian Oceans. This unique setting allows grapes to ripen at a slower rate, giving the winemaking team the time to cultivate and nurture vines to produce their absolute best fruit.

We thrive by our very connection to and harmony with the land, putting this passion into practice in our vineyards and winery. Our isolated setting, growing conditions, distance from the coast and gravelly soils are perfect for cultivating wine. Warm days and cool nights help the grapes to ripen slowly; encouraging intense flavours, fine acid and tannins, resulting in wines that reflect the true character of Frankland River.
