Forest Hill Vineyard is not only the oldest cool climate vineyard in Western Australia, but also planted on one of the Mt Barker regions first farms. Settled in the 1840’s, Highbury Fields is a site of historical agricultural significance in the Great Southern, which over the past century has been farmed for apples, dairy, grains, lamb and wool. Purchased over 15 years ago, the Highbury Fields property is today producing exceptional fruit with the dry-grown vineyards occupying the best soils on this historic property.

”Mount Barker. From the Highbury Fields vines (planted 2003) and Block 9 (planted 1985). Gingn dominant, but also includes Dijon clones (76, 95 & 96). High-solids ferment in a variety of vessels: large-format French casks, stainless steel and concrete. Partial mlf. Very fine; the impact of oak is subtle, however a freshly crushed curry-leaf character is a dead giveaway of the high-solids ferment. It brings texture and complexity to the wine, making for some seriously good, lean, acid-driven drinking. Very smart indeed.”
