The Rose & Thorns portfolio of wines is named after the founding partners of Byron & Harold – three thorny fellows of good humour and strong vinous heritage and Rose, our loquacious and good-natured foil who keeps us all focused on producing stunning wines in the glass. Wine growing and wine making are difficult pursuits even in the best seasons and we aim to honour the wonder of Great Southern in Western Australia by creating wines with a sense of flavour reflective of the purity of our surrounds. The Great Southern features dramatic forested cliffs pounded by the wild Southern Ocean intermingled with cosy coves and calm bays. Rolling pastoral landscapes and majestic mountain ranges are home to a rich variety of picturesque vineyards in which fine wines are carefully crafted.

Grape Variety



Great Southern



Wine Style

White - juicy, refreshing, light to medium-bodied


Flavours of lemon zest, sweet floral notes and a fresh natural acid give a wonderful length to the wine, finishing with crisp minerality.



Food Pairing

Thai salad with salt and pepper squid

”he Great Southern region in Western Australia continues to provide us with fine, if ‘alternative’, Rieslings. Very pale yellow, there are appealing citrus and minerally notes here with a slight soapstone, fresh lemon characters. Structurally, it is a little broader than some of the Rieslings which originate a little more to the east, but it is none the worse for that. The wine lifts on the palate, exhibiting fine balance and more focus with excellent length. Fine with juicy acidity, it should drink very well over the next five to six years.”
