Passel Estate

Nestled in a picturesque bushland setting you will find Passel Estate, a beautiful vineyard in the heart of the Margaret River wine region. Established in 2011 by Wendy and Barry Stimpson, the intimate venue is perfect for discovering their small-batch wines of distinction while supporting nature conservation.

Experienced viticulturist Andy Ferreira manages the vineyard year-round, rigorous in his adoption of sustainable practices, from water management to soil biodiversity and pest management. A certified member of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia, Passel Estate dedicates a portion of the guided wine
tasting proceeds to further conservation efforts at the vineyard, such as providing a refuge for the endangered Western Ringtail Possum.

Additional conservation measures include the irrigation of peppermint woodlands, feral predator and weed control, and the re-vegetation of the creek-lines and bush corridors, providing a link for small fauna to move between remnant bushland areas. Visitors can even enjoy a private tour of the bushland conservation sanctuary and taste the award-winning wine alongside the very vines responsible for it.

For visiting wine enthusiasts, Passel Estate offers a range of wine tasting experiences including Wine & Food Pairing – A Sensory Journey, Classical Wine & Cheese Tasting, Nature & Wine Walk and Wine Sunsets. The contemporary tasting room features floor-to-ceiling glass on three sides so that visitors are immediately connected with the picturesque gardens, surrounding vines and bushland conservation 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.

Specialising in single-vineyard, premium wines defined by their perfumed fruit character, structure and balance, the philosophy behind Passel Estate wines is driven by an uncompromising commitment to quality. This high standard is evident in the winery’s impressive list of accolades, including gold medals from the Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge and awarded Best Tasting Experience by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine. Along with the beautiful on-site cellar door, customers can also enjoy online wine sales as well as the wine club membership with two tier options to choose from.

Tasting Notes

2021 Chardonnay
⇐ 2021 Chardonnay

An elegant chardonnay with aromas of white pear, jasmine and citrus pith. White fruits on the palate are wrapped in viscous textures of nectarines and brioche, driven by a natural acidity to a finish laced with crushed granite and lemongrass.

2021 Sauvignon Blanc
⇐ 2021 Sauvignon Blanc

Lifted aromas of lemongrass and gooseberries move to a deeper foundation of lychee, red currants and meringue. A textural palate, starting with flavours of white pear and honeysuckle and finishing with nectarines, apricot blossom and lime leaf.

2018 Lot 71 Reserve Syrah
⇐2018 Lot 71 Reserve Syrah

An elegant wine displaying notes of black cherry, graphite, baked orange and cracked allspice. Rich flavours of black plums and ground cacao underpin an otherwise graceful expression of fruit and floral aroma.

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
⇐ 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon

A bouquet of violets, red currants, cassis, hints of boysenberry and freshly roasted coffee. Flavours of cherry blossom, blueberry and cedar dart across undertones of graphite and black currants, with a finish of oyster shell and cracked gravel.
