Nocturne Wines

Western Australia | Margaret River

James' Review

Alana and Julian Langworthy were newly minted winemakers when they met in South Australia over 15 years ago, and set up a small winery project called Nocturne Wines. The intention was to make small quantities of project wines as an adjunct to their day jobs as employed winemakers. The enlightened Peter Fogarty, owner of West Australia's fastest growing wine business (Fogarty Family Wines), raised no objection to Nocturne Wines when he appointed Julian chief winemaker in 2011. Nocturne has been able to buy the Sheoak Vineyard (former Jimmy Watson-producing vineyard - Harvey River Bridge 2010), with its 4ha of mature cabernet sauvignon vines, but  Nocturne remains produced in modest quantities. The flood of show awards will, indeed, be enhanced by the arrival of Nocturne alongside Deep Woods Estate. Exports to the UK.
