Marri Wood Park

Western Australia | Margaret River

Our Review

Established 1992 in Yallingup, Marri Wood Park is a boutique, family-owned producer with an impressive range of wines from a bouncy, natty Pet-Nat to the serious classic varieties that have made the Margaret River region famous. Natalie Wright and her father Julian moved to Yallingup in 2004 to take over the vineyard that had been managed for them for 11 years. Today they have 6.5ha of Demeter-certified, biodynamic vineyards planted to cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc and semillon. The emphasis is on an ecologically beneficial approach to farming that yields top-quality wine grapes, and is sustainable and in tune with the environment. A bright addition to the Margaret River winescape. -DAVE BROOKES

About

Marri Wood Park is a boutique family run and owned, Demeter certified biodynamic vineyard. Established 1992 in Yallingup, Western Australia, located on Caves Road, a stone throw from Smiths Beach. Our biodynamic philosophy utilises sustainable, chemical free practices. Applying the timing and movement of celestial objects to predicate pruning, live animal fertilising, and picking; complementing our natural and introduced bio-diversity as an ecologically beneficial approach to farming. Sixteen acres and ten-thousand vines comprising cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc, semillon and a terroir of sandy gravelly loam on limestone bedrock. No irrigation; made possible by the dewy, cooling breeze which rolls off the Southern Indian Ocean in conjunction with gentle north facing slopes, undulating topography and well-established roots of our 28-year-old vines. The result is hardy vines that produce high quality, robust and delicious grapes. The berries are hand-picked and sorted and then fermented in an array of fermenters (including clay amphoras, French and Austrian oak barrels) to produce the highest quality wine exemplifying the Margaret River region’s fine viticultural qualities.
