Red 5 Star Winery
'Bright, light green-straw; an elegant wine with subtle barrel ferment inputs hiding behind the perfectly ripened fruit that provides the blossom aromas of the bouquet and the range of tropical notes on the palate.' James Halliday 93/100
Owned by John and Katie Sprig, Trevelen Farm has a family history in wine dating back to 1850’s, established on the family farm in 1993, it is the most northern vineyard in the great southern region of Western Australia. This protects the vineyard from diseases caused by coastal rain and reduces the use of artificial disease control. Climate is slightly warmer than the coast, but still benefits from the cool sea breezes.
Partner Vineyards a have also been established in the nearby Frankland River sub – region giving Trevelen Farm a wider choice for fruit selection.
The wines are carefully made by James Kellie, formerly of Howard Park - Denmark, has built a ‘state of the art’ 500 tonne winery at Harewood Estate in Denmark. It is here that James applies his passion to crafting our fruit into our award winning wines. We are very proud of what James creates and he is truly part of the Trevelen Farm wine family.
The palate is a perfect balance between ripe fruit, texture and length. Initial flavours of mandarin and rockmelon lead to a soft middle palate that finishes with refreshing grapefruit acidity, balanced by toasty French oak. I reckon this wine will age quite well.!!!
