Lunch at Fraser Gallop at Wilyabrup is at the heart of the Margaret River Wine Region was the start of a wonderful journey enjoying red wine. I fell in love with their Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon and it is still my favourite red. A boutique winery that showcases Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc.
Their winemaker Kate Walker, spent time with us explaining their vineyard practices and also the winemaking process. I think this was the first time I forgot to take photos of what we were eating. Our lunch was set up in with the barrels on a very elegant, highly polished timber table and our guide from Margaret River Discovery Tours had organised a lunch of local produce, condiments, cheese, smoked trout, and cold meats. With each course we tasted our wine, from a fresh Parterre Chardonnay and my favourite Fraser Gallop Cabernet Sauvignon. Fantastic
