Passel Estate

Western Australia | Margaret River

James' Review

Wendy and Barry Stimpson were born in England and South Africa respectively, and during numerous visits to Margaret River over the years, fell in love with the region's environment. They made Margaret River home in 2005, and in '11 purchased the vineyard, which is planted to shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. Viticulturist Andy Ferreira manages the vineyard with sustainable practices, keeping yields restricted to 6.5-7t/ha. The very talented and highly experienced contract winemaker Bruce Dukes is responsible for the wines. Exports to Singapore and Hong Kong.

About

A place of provenance, discovery and sanctuary: Provenance relates to the physical location of this very small, family owned estate in the heart of Margaret River, the great earth in which the vines grow and the maturity of the vines themselves. Discovery is all about the very small quantities produced and the unique Tasting Room experience on offer. Sanctuary relates to the natural bushland surrounds, comprising some of the oldest peppermint trees in the region (as well as jarrah, marri and grass trees). A family (or Passel) of endangered Western Ringtail Possums was relocated here following the 2011 Margaret River bushfires, and the owners continue to support and provide sanctuary to endangered native species within the estate.

Specialities

Information

Passel Estate’s Tasting Room is a wonderful place to begin your Margaret River wine tasting journey.

The contemporary Tasting Room features floor to ceiling glass on three sides so that visitors are immediately connected with the surrounding vines and natural bushland sanctuary. Stone walls and stunning timbers are used throughout, sourced from the estate wherever possible. The building is beautifully appointed and sets the scene for a unique, high end and wholly authentic wine tasting experience.
