Driftwood Estate is a boutique winery set in the stunning Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, Western Australia. Established by Tom and Helen Galopoulos in 1989 on what had previously been a country retreat, the winery immediately received acclaim when its first wine, a Semillon produced in 1993, won a special commendation in a British competition.

Description

Vintage was on!! Until…. Ohhhh Mother Nature!!! And then came the rain…. A late summer deluge from the tropics came through and kept us on edge through early-February although luckily the grapes were not quite ripe enough to soak it all up and after a week or two drying out the Chardonnay followed by Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc came in beautiful. Things were going smoothly until bamm… Another tropical downpour through early-March and we were racing to pick the softer skin red varieties like Malbec and Shiraz. All good, fruit was in and perfect. Like clockwork the systems were running beautifully until…Just to make things interesting an unprecedented cyclone Seroja made its way down the west coast of WA during mid-April.. So that was it fruit was in and looking cherry ripe making for another sensational vintage from the Margaret River region.
