Geoff and Marie-Pierre took over Sunnyhurst in May 2017 after a two-year search for the ideal place to live. The house is a glorious 120-year-old stone and iron building with pressed tin ceilings, set high on a hill with a magnificent view over the north-facing vineyard to the Mattamattup Valley and to the West over the Blackwood River Valley.
Sunnyhurst uses traditional winemaking methods, all grapes are hand picked and pressed using a hand operated Italian basket press to gently extract the juice from the grape skins. Refrigeration ensures white wines achieve great delicacy and flavour from a long cool fermentation. All aspects of wine production are undertaken on site.
The Sunnyhurst Vineyard is Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot . When we require other varieties such as Shiraz or Chardonnay we obtain them from other growers in the region. The vineyard is dry grown (unirrigated) which brings intensity of flavour and regional character to the wines. The Northerly aspect of the vineyard is such that the prevailing breeze keeps the vines free of pests and diseases.
