Upper Reach

Western Australia | Swan Valley

Our Review

This 10ha property on the banks of the upper reaches of the Swan River was purchased by Laura Rowe and Derek Pearse in 1996. The original 4ha vineyard was expanded and plantings now include chardonnay, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, verdelho, semillon, merlot, petit verdot and muscat. 90% of grapes are estate-grown; all wine is vinified on site. The RiverBrook Restaurant serves share plates and the cellar door received a string of Gourmet Traveller WINE awards between 2013 and 2018.
