Situated in Pemberton, Silkwood is a boutique winery offering award winning premium wines and an idyllic Cellar Door setting to enjoy a light lunch with your favourite wine.
Established in 1998, Silkwood Wines has become synonymous with premium wine and alfresco dining. Set in Pemberton’s premier wine growing region and back dropped by towering karri forest, the 26 ha vineyard is blessed with gravely soils and cool, even temperatures during the ripening periods. Having already won widespread acclaim and awards for our premium red and white wines, Silkwood is perfectly poised to produce outstanding wines into the future. Silkwood has effectively combined two prime vineyard locations and now supports its own wine labels by using entirely estate grown fruit, hand crafted on the property. Silkwood’s state of the art boutique winery and expert vineyard team ensure the fruit has maximum flavour intensity and regional varietal flavours.
Silkwood has three ranges of wines. ‘Heritage’, ‘Seasons’ and ‘Dingo Creek’. All Silkwood Heritage Wines are varietal, which means that no other varieties are blended into the wine. This enhances the flavours, character and individuality of the wines. Two of our most popular wines from the Heritage Range are the 2006 Pinot Noir and the 2005 Shiraz . Pinot is a specialty of Pemberton’s cool climate growing style. Silkwood has distinguished itself with smooth, elegant Pinots that have been recognised with several medals including a Gold and ‘Best Pinot of Show’ for our Pinot 2006 in the Murrumbateman Cool Climate Wine Show in 2008. Our 2005 Heritage Shiraz is spicy with chocolate, vanilla and berry overtones, a beautiful ruby colour and proving very popular
Our Seasons range is aimed specifically to women. The ‘pretty’ labels and names like ‘Dew’, ‘Twilight’ and ‘ Blush’ are easy drinking, refreshing wines. Our Classic (Late-picked Riesling) is a popular choice for those who like their wine a touch sweet, while the Blush (Sweet and Dry Rosé) are big sellers. The Dingo Creek range was inherited from previous owners and is an extremely popular range. For the price, both the Wild Dog Red (Red Blend) and the Wild Dog White (Sauvignon Blanc) are great for bulk buying. We have 2 delightful Sparkling Wines made in the traditional Champagne style. The Little Bitch label stirs up much conversation. Initially, our planned ‘Dog Box’ consisted of an Old Dog Port and his two Little Bitches (a Pinot/Chardonnay and a Rosé) but the bubbles have sold extremely well by themselves, with most people ‘knowing just the right person’ for the label. Both Little Bitches are extremely popular for birthdays and 21st gifts.
SILKWOOD CELLAR DOOR
Silkwood boasts a magnificent Cellar Door overlooking a large lake. We are open Friday’s to Monday’s, 10am to 4pm - for tastings, wine sales and lunches. The perfect setting to while away the hours enjoying lovely food accompanied by award winning wines. Small functions and weddings are extremely popular as the beautiful gardens and bush surrounds add a unique setting for that special occasion.
Because of the beauty of Silkwood’s surrounds, four chalets are now in construction and will be ready in early 2011. The chalets will be modern with a focus on privacy and luxury, with comforts such as king size beds, spas and incredible views and scenery.
