Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed. The vineyard is a special site, and Rob Diletti’s skills are obvious. The citrus blossom bouquet and unsweetened lime juice flavours of the palate simply won’t leave your mouth neutral once you’ve swallowed it.

Producers notes

Duke and Hilde Ranson ended their long search for the perfect property to establish their vineyard as their “retirement”. The first vine was planted on Duke’s 60th birthday, on the 5th August, 1999. We decided to plant beautiful Riesling, beloved Cabernet Sauvignon (by Duke) and a spicy Shiraz. We have planted 25 acres of vines on our 160+ acre farm and are running a Suffolk sheep stud on the remaining acreage. Our story has been documented pretty extensively through our very popular newsletters which are released each season.

Our first vintage in 2001 resulted in a gold medal, the first of many awards including the Best in Show Trophy at the Sydney Royal Wine Show 2006. Since 2013 we have been in Hallidays top 100.

Hilde is a successful artist and one of her early projects was to design a tasting area that would be in harmony with the surrounding and make best use of the spectacular views to the Stirling and Porongurup Ranges. The resulting building provides for tastings in a glorious location as well as insulated wine storage and a working gallery. The curved mountain blue cladding is now a landmark on the Porongurup tourist route and fits aesthetically into the landscape.

Duke’s Vineyard is the dream that is now reality and Hilde and Duke remain as enthusiastic about their project as they were on the day they first saw the property.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
