Welcome to Pepperwood Estate

VINTAGE 2014 IS WELL AND TRULY UNDERWAY!

 The 2013 Pepperwood Classic White is a stunning blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon with a luscious fresh nose and a bit of passionfruit in the first aromatic waft.  The 2013 Pepperwood Rose is a great looking PINK wine balanced with good flavour length and soft strawberry and spicy fruit.  A great wine for lunches and lazy Sunday afternoons

While Pepperwood continues to specialise in producing fine Shiraz it has now broadened its range to also include Ruby Jools – a great red bubbly and a Liqueur Shiraz in a ruby port style

Pepperwood is a boutique vineyard owned and operated by Colin and Sandy Manley.  The Estate is just north of Capel adjacent to Geographe Bay.  The property is surrounded by Tuart Forest with the vines planted in tuart sand over limestone.  The fresh maritime breezes from Geographe Bay cool the grapes in the hot summer afternoons allowing substantial flavour development throughout the summer ripening period.  The warmth of the sun adds considerable generosity and length of flavour to the wines

The vines are now 15 years old and much hands on work from budburst to harvest means that the product is very unique to the local terroir.  .
No pesticides are used in the vineyard and minimal if any water is used for irrigation.  The latter depends a lot on the quantity of winter rainfall.
Approximately 1400 cases of wine are produced each year.
