Willow Bridge Estate is an exciting addition to the World Wine Industry, located in a hidden jewel of the winemaking region of south-west Western Australia called the Ferguson Valley. This award winning winery, in less than a decade, has produced an impressive array of outstanding wines, most notably the classic (and award winning) Black Dog Shiraz.
This Black Dog is a classically Australian styled Shiraz. It was fermented in small open topped stainless-fermenters, hand-plunged and drained off skins after seven days to finish fermentation in a combination of French and American oak barriques, 85% of which were new. Post ferment, the wine matured in these barrels for 14 months before being racked to tank, clarified and then bottled.
