Tasting Notes

Magpie Hill Reserve Shiraz 2018 shows rich plum fruit, a hint of white pepper and finishes with beautifully integrated French oak. This vintage will age well and will bring joy to anyone who waits until 2040. A wonderful cool climate red.

97 Point Rated James Halliday Australian Wine Companion

"Estate-grown, small parcels. The colour is deep, the palate exceptionally focused and full-bodied, yet it has the Duke's lightness of touch courtesy of contract winemaking by Rob Diletti of Castle Rock. This is a great wine with a very long future"

96 Point Rated Nick Butler The Real Review 

"A vibrant purple colour with brighter purple edges. Dark soy and ripe plum aromas, toasty oak and red licorice. Lovely. Medium-weight and spicy - the underlying berry fruit is remarkably pristine. Oak is fully integrated, fruit rightfully given centre stage. Prodigious length, acidity and tannins balanced and allow this wine to flow. Sensational."

Technical

Duke and Hilde Ranson ended their long search for the perfect property to establish their vineyard as their "retirement". The first vine was planted on Duke's 60th birthday, on the 5th August, 1999. When other people think of retirement, Duke and Hilde Ranson started their wine-making careers.

With Duke’s background in Agriculture and a long love affair with wine, it was not altogether a surprise when Duke and Hilde purchased a block in the Riesling belt in the Porongurup.

They decided to plant beautiful Riesling, beloved Cabernet Sauvignon (by Duke) and spicy Shiraz. Ten hectares of vines were planted on the 60 hectare farm. ‘Porongurup Pure’ sheep are agisted on the remaining acreage.  The vineyard is situated at the foot of the heritage-listed Porongurup Range and also overlooks the Stirling Range to the north. It is a cool climate region producing soft reds and is a premium region for Riesling. The cellar door opened in 2002, to serve their first ever vintage, 2001 Riesling.

The entire staff consists of six, with Duke and Hilde included. They are a small, passionate, family orientated crew, who all know the place like the back of their hand. 

Duke’s Vineyard is the dream that is now reality - and although retirement is looming, Duke and Hilde remain as enthusiastic about their project as they were on the day they first saw the property.
