ESTATE AND RESERVE WINES

MARGARET RIVER CLASSICS

Regionality and terroir: The French concept of climate, soil and winemaking combining to make wines speak of their place, sums up what Cape Landing's philosophy of wine creation.

Our Estate and Reserve wines are made entirely from fruit produced in our own single vineyard located in the southern part of the Margaret RIver wine region. This is an area recognised for its cool, consistent, maritime climate, and capacity to produce elegant medium bodied premium wines defined by their fruit character, aromatics, structure and balance.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Variety, location, and viticultural technique all contribute to creating award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon at Cape Landing.

A Silver Medal winner at the Langton's Margaret River Wine Show 2019 placed Cape Landing's 2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon in the top 10 of all 2018 bottled Cabernet Sauvignon's produced in the Margaret River GI.

We continue to re-work and revitalise our Block CL3 Cabernet Sauvignon, cane pruning the vines up to six weeks earlier than other varieties and managing canopy development throughout the growing season.

CHARDONNAY

Gingin Chardonnay from Cape Landing’s Block CL6, first planted in 1998, has been routinely used in premium and reserve wines throughout the Margaret River wine region.

Canes from Block CL6 have been used to establish our younger Gingin Chardonnay Block’s CL1 and CL9, and Cape Landing’s other Chardonnay varietals include Block CL7 (Clone 5) and Block CL8 (Clone 3).

Each block of fruit as a bespoke personality.

Our Chardonnay's are lightly oaked, packed full of lean, fresh, citrus flavour and reveal multiple layers of textural complexity and natural acidity.

SYRAH

Cape Landing’s Reserve Syrah is made exclusively from 22-year-old shiraz harvested each vintage year from Block CL5.

This block at our Calgardup Road vineyard, renown for its high-quality fruit, is a long time favourite of many regional wine makers.

We make the most of Margaret River’s cooler climate and more southerly location to produce a medium bodied Syrah, cast in a lighter, more elegant, spicier, modern Australian style that has more in common with the wines of the Northern Rhône in France than the Shiraz producing wine regions of eastern Australia.

SAUVIGNON BLANC

Winner of back-to-back medals at the 2018 and 2019 Langton’s Margaret River Wine Show, our Sauvignon Blanc quickly established itself as one of Cape Landing’s most successful wines.

We are particularly proud of the Gold Medal awarded to Cape Landing's Sauvignon Blanc 2019 at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2020.

Our Sauvignon Blanc 2019 was also awarded a rating of 96 points, making it the highest rated Sauvignon Blanc in Australia at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2020 and the only Sauvignon Blanc from Australia to achieve the distinction of a Gold Medal.

Exceptional fruit from Cape Landing Block’s CL2 and CL4 produce elegant wines that are wonderfully aromatic, vibrant, and perfectly balanced.

Texture, palate length and a more serious, sophisticated profile are all achieved with use of French oak to mature a portion of the wine.

A perfect companion to......just about anything!
