Why Are They So Fabulous?
Marvelous Margaret River keeps on giving with the spectacular Victory Point Wines.
Created and developed by the Berson family, they set out to replicate the best vineyards in the area by following in the footsteps of the pioneers who created the original unirrigated vineyards which now produce the icon wines of the Margaret River.
Only the best advice would do, and so viticulture and winemaking legends Keith & Clare Mugford as well as the Moss Wood team gave their expertise. Keith was consulted right through from site selection to establishing the wine making criteria.
“To create an enduring family business which will override the fashions of the wine markets by making decisions based on the goal of producing the best quality wine from the varieties best suited to our chosen location, namely; premium quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines for which the region is internationally renowned.”
Dry grown vines and stringent viticultural and winemaking practices shows through in the wine – a true reflection of the subtleties and variations of each vintage and the Victory Point vineyard.
Vineyard visits are available by appointment, otherwise snap up some Victory Point wines in their online shop!
Which Wines Should I Try?
Victory Point 2012 Chardonnay – White peach, nectarine, and lemon brioche, intermingle with hints of flint, oyster shell and toasty oak. On the palate lemon rind, white stone-fruit, and almond meal flavours draw into a savoury mineral finish that is long and moreish.
Victory Point 2016 Rose – Made from Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Malbec grapes, Highly refreshing, with bright red currant, strawberry and musky / meaty tones. This textural rose offers an enjoyable mouth feel and and a refreshing finish with more complexity that many of its contemporaries.
Victory Point 2013 Malbec – Black cherry, ripe blackcurrant, plum, liquorice allsorts and spicy vanillin oak are lifted on the nose. The palate is generously full flavoured, silky smooth and rich yet with restraint while the length and structure are provided by the slightly chalky tannins.
