Family run. Hand picked. Biodynamic.
No chemicals. No pesticides. No fertiliser. No irrigation.
Marri Wood Park is a boutique family run and owned, Demeter certified biodynamic vineyard. Established 1992 in Yallingup, Western Australia, located on Caves Road, a stone throw from Smiths Beach.
Our biodynamic philosophy utilises sustainable, chemical free practices. Applying the timing and movement of celestial objects to predicate pruning, live animal fertilising, and picking; complementing our natural and introduced bio-diversity as an ecologically beneficial approach to farming.
Sixteen acres and ten-thousand vines comprising cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc, semillon and a terroir of sandy gravelly loam on limestone bedrock. No irrigation; made possible by the dewy, cooling breeze which rolls off the Southern Indian Ocean in conjunction with gentle north facing slopes, undulating topography and well-established roots of our 28-year-old vines.
The result is hardy vines that produce high quality, robust and delicious grapes. The berries are hand-picked and sorted and then fermented in an array of fermenters (including clay amphoras, French and Austrian oak barrels) to produce the highest quality wine exemplifying the Margaret River region’s fine viticultural qualities.
Sparkling Chenin Blanc 2014
Sparkling Chenin Blanc from our dry-grown organic, biodynamic vineyard. Picked on the earlier side of fully ripe with the intention of harnessing as much natural acidity as possible, the wine then spends 60 months on lees to build textural complexity and depth of flavour.View
