A Picturesque Site
Underlying the southern corner of Western Australia is a huge mass of granite rock called The Yilgarn craton. The Yilgarn craton is recognised as the oldest rock formation on earth dating back more than 3 billion years. The gravelly ironstone soils that have formed on the higher ground above the craton are found throughout Pemberton and the Smithbrook vineyards.
An Ingrained Philosophy
Smithbrook wines capture the essence of what this beautiful region has to offer without interfering with the spectacular and picturesque natural environment that surrounds the vineyard. Organic practices are used, and a fresh water catchment keeps water usage low and trains the vines to be tolerant of seasonal variances.
