A breathtaking undulating vineyard set beside the ancient Porongurup Range known for its highly-awarded, pure, cool climate wines and picture-perfect views from its delightful cafe.
Ironwood Estate is nestled in the heart of the ancient Porongurup Range; an 1100-million year-old granite range that was once a forest island. Established in 1996 by Mary and Eugene Harma, 'Ironwood' earned its name thanks to the ironstone outcrops on the hills, and the stands of Jarrah and Redgum. Planted in unique mineral-rich soils, the estate's cool-climate elevation and local terroir yields intense, varietal fruit flavours in wines with known for their distinctive clean palate. Ironwood Estate is dedicated to consistent quality, from the hand selection of their grapes through the vinification, maturation and bottling of their fine wines.
The wine range is focused toward the varieties best suited to the Porongurup area, specifically dry Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet blends. Wines can be tasted and purchased at the estate's cellar door, open Wednesday to Monday 11am - 5pm.
