One of the great little wineries in Margaret River
Hidden down a winding dirt road but well worth the effort to take the road less travelled.
In 1996 Robert & Karen Karri-Davies planted their 15 acre vineyard on the headwaters of the Wilyabrup Valley. Cape Grace is dedicated to consistently producing exceptional single vineyard wines and are committed to producing handcrafted wines that are site specific. Cape Grace Wines is as much about nuance and art as it is skills and passion. Our wines are a true reflection of the timeless art of winemaking and local terroir.
Handcrafted with patience and care our wines aim to capture the character and flavours of the unique Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River and its blessed growing season, and are a focused expression of our highly individual ‘forest’ vineyard site.
Estate grown fruit is vinified on the property, with free run juice and light pressings fermented in new, one and two year old French oak, from a carefully selected range of coopers. Minimal interference along with strict temperature and hygiene regimes allows the grapes to express their individual flavour profiles. Reds are carefully basket pressed using traditional methods and then gently transferred to French barriques for 12-18 months maturation. After numerous barrel tastings and blending trials, the final barrel selection is made, gently fined and bottled.
The rewards for theses pursuits include 3 trophies and over 170 medals. Cape Grace has been previously included in one of James Halliday’s “Ten of the Best New Wineries” listings and is currently rated a red 5 Star Winery in James Halliday’s 2018 edition of the Wine Companion. Total production is limited to 1500 – 2200 dozen cases depending on the season, and the wines are sold primarily via the Cellar Door and mail order. There is also a collection of native birds to keep the kids entertained whilst the parents taste and our resident peacock is a sight to behold.
