Simpson Estate

Our Winemaking

Simpson Estate's wines are a true reflection of the Margaret River Wine Region's capacity to produce world-class wine and are regularly recognised at leading national and international wine shows.

We specialize in Bordeaux-blend Cabernet, which is typically made up of 70% to 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, balanced by 10% to 25% of Merlot and, in some vintages, a small quantity of Malbec.

Since 2018, Simpson Estate has sourced premium Chardonnay fruit from an award-winning estate south of Margaret River, allowing us to complement our Bordeaux blend with a Burgundy-inspired white wine.

For both wines, the Simpson Estate philosophy remains – we don’t hold back on anything, from continual soil analysis and the adoption of Organic viticultural principals, to meticulous fruit selection that includes hand-picking and inspecting every basket.

Simpson Estate Cabernet is aged for at least 18 months, and the Chardonnay for at least nine months, in premium French oak, typically 35-40% of which are new barrels.

Simpson Estate wines are made to reward patience. While absolutely enjoyable from the day of release, the savvy oenophile will derive the most pleasure after careful cellaring for several years after the release date.
