Denmark Sub-Region

The Denmark Sub-Region, south of Perth in the Great Southern Wine Region includes vineyards and wineries in the area surrounding Denmark. Denmark lies on the coast about 60 km from Albany. The region's reputation has been built around its distinctive Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. Denmark is the centre of a thriving tourist industry based on the beaches, fishing and boating. The attraction of the area for visitors has been boosted in recent years by the emerging wine tourism. The climate in the area is Mediterranean with wet winters and warm to hot summers. The proximity to the sea moderate the heat and dryness in summer through the frequent sea breezes that develop each afternoon. The soils are a mix of karri loam and marri loam. While the major focus in the area is on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, other varieties to excel on the area include red varieties such as Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and white varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Harvest is generally from early March to mid April.

The Great Southern Wine Region includes eleven districts : Albany ; Denmark ; Frankland River ; Cranbrook ; Mount Barker ; Porongurup ; Walpole ; Broome Hill ; Borden ; Redmont ; Mount Barker West

Over the past 13 years they have been perfecting the process of making wine without the need to add preservatives. They also produce traditional Italian liqueurs such as Limoncello and Nocino, and some modern liqueurs such as choc orange, all with no added preservatives.

Rockcliffe, WA  18 Hamilton Road, Denmark, Great Southern, Western Australia, 6333
The origin of Rockcliffe was an 18 acre expanse of apple orchards planted early in the 1900’s in the rich Scotsdale Valley region of Denmark in the Great Southern, Western Australia. In the late 1980’s, a local family acquired the property for its fertile soils and position for long afternoon sunshine with cool ocean breezes. It was christened Matilda’s Meadow and the planting of dry grown vines commenced. The Pinot and Chardonnay vines were the first planted in the district in 1987. Our premium wines proudly carry the winery’s name. The name Rockcliffe comes from the stretch of 100 m high granite cliffs that dominate the coastline of the main bay of Denmark. The Single Site wines are true to their origin and express the individual grapes and terroir they come from.

Silverstream Wines,   241 Scotsdale Rd, Denmark WA 6333
Tony Ruse' passion for farming commenced with his first farming property in West Gingin, purchased in 1973. Ironically the vendors were vigneron/winemakers, the Noack brothers, who owned Swanville Wines in the Swan Valley. They had chosen the West Gingin site due to its this wonderful Terra Rossa limestone yellow and orange soils. It would become insurance against the future urban encroachment predicted in the Swan Valley. This property is still owned by the Ruse family, on which they run fine wool Merino sheep on a mixture of annual and perennial pastures. Tony’s passion for soil, pasture and animals was despite no family farming history. It was a very inexperienced beginning.

Singlefile Wines represents our family's pursuit of excellence. Every wine in our range embodies a drive to craft wines of exceptional quality from Western Australia's Great Southern wine region. At Singlefile we strive to excel in every task that comes before us. From rigorously analysing soil composition and climatic variations through to vigour in the winery, Singlefile’s approach to winemaking is nothing short of singular. inglefile’s Chardonnay vineyard in Denmark’s Scotsdale Valley is the jewel in the crown. In 2007, Phil and Viv Snowden acquired the former Scotsdale Valley Estate property with an established vineyard (planted in 1986) that grew Chardonnay, Merlot and Shiraz. The vineyard is 60 metres above sea level and slopes north/north-westwards, which assists greatly with irrigation and drainage of winter rains. It is planted on rich karri loam and is sheltered by the surrounding giant karri trees. There is ample rainfall in the area, especially in winter, although the vineyard has an irrigation system fed by a large dam on the property. In 2009, the team made the decision to pull out the Shiraz and Merlot vines in order to focus Singlefile’s viticulture efforts on just six acres of chardonnay.

Willoughby Park,   678 South Coast Hwy, Hay WA 6333
On Western Australia’s South Coast where the Southern Ocean has sculpted a raw and dramatic coastline; on the eastern edge of the Porongurup Range National Park, lies a tiny vineyard. A true hidden gem of the Great Southern wine region. This is our Kalgan River vineyard. A place James Halliday describes as a “mighty mouse of a vineyard”, awarding it a 5-star rating. Its proximity to the Southern Ocean brings cooling summer breezes, slowing the ripening of the grapes and allowing for a long, cool, and even ripening period. These vines are dry-grown with root systems travelling deep into rocky soil beds, creating complex fruit with a unique expression of place. Terroir, natural climatic advantage and sensitive viticulture come together to work their magic in this place of beauty and potential.
