After its establishment in 2000, Bob and Marilyn Fowler purchased the estate in 2010 and created Willoughby Park. Since then, the Fowler family’s intention has been to create expressive wines that are true representations of the Great Southern wine region.
These select single site wines are named after the Iron ore found in the Kalgan River vineyard giving the name Ironrock. The rocky beds in which these old vines grow and flourish in. This site in the Kalgan River vineyard produces exceptionally high quality fruit with amazing concentration of flavours, offering true varietal definition and distinct characteristics that set this site apart.
Curranty fruit flavour has just started to mellow, but it still feels authoritative. This impression is aided by a sturdy framework of peppercorn-studded tannin, though the fruit is not held up, it continues to flow seamlessly out through the finish. We have here a pretty classy wine, made to endure. Drink to: 2035; Price: $55.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2020; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points; Campbell Mattinson; James Halliday Wine Companion
