Victory Point Wines
They are trying to replicate the best vineyards in the area, which were the pioneers, who created the original unirrigated vineyards which now produce the icon wines of Margaret River.
The name Victory Point is derived from the almost forgotten site located at the end of their road. Local historians have told them it was seconded and named by the district’s pioneers, either because of the famous victories that occurred on the cricket pitch that is still there, or more likely, because the area was used to train the local lads prior to their departure for WWII. Community celebrations were held there, including the announcement of Peace at the end of the war. They chose the name Victory Point to represent the celebratory and community spirit of country Australia.
The decision to not irrigate the vineyard was made at the initial planning stage in an effort to maximise the complexity of flavours from the fruit and the individual characteristics of the vineyard at each vintage. The theory being, that roots forced to go deep to find the water table will pass through a more complex array of mineral and vegetative matter and thus obtain a more complex combination of flavours. The subtleties and variation of each vintage are truly reflected in wines produced from unirrigated vines.
