Yilgarnia Wines and Wildflowers

BOOK A TABLE

If you're looking for a tipple with history, Yilgarnia Wines is a family-run vineyard that dates back to the 60s. This parcel of land by the Hay River in Western Australia's Denmark region was home to cattle before becoming the 13 hectares of grapes, grapes and more grapes it is today. The livestock are still part of the property, but both vino and wildflowers are firmly on Yilgarnia's agenda as well.

When it comes to wine, full-flavoured drops have proven the vineyard's speciality. That includes its shiraz, aka a standout, go-to red that heroes notes of cherries, plums, blackberries, spice and oak. This is a cool-climate version, too, with the rich take on the popular variety gaining prominence in recent years — in Yilgarnia's case, rightfully so.

Yilgarnia's vineyard also features a cellar door with views of its wildflowers — which'll reopen after its COVID-19 closure at a later date.
