“One of the best-value Margaret River chardonnays on the market” Max Allen was recently in the region for a series of events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the modern Margaret River wine industry, including a retrospective tasting of the region’s chardonnays. “The most delicious of the younger vintages was the 2016 Fraser Gallop Parterre.” Stocks are limited but this wine is still available at cellar door and on our website.

We’re missing the magical evenings from @gourmetescape but hope that summer has plenty more to come. ✨ @youngadventuress arriving for the opening night 📷 @madeleinebjones
Did you know it takes three days of mowing, every week, to keep our lawns tidy? Mowing between rows keeps the vines healthy, too, and allows us easy access to keep an eye on the grapes. We're pleased to say it's shaping up to be another beautiful vintage. Not long to go! Photo by Sean at @discovermargaretriver

It was such a joy to receive photos from @caitriona_jones_styling and reflect on all the sumptuous food and wine at @gourmetescape. @fervorfood, @pierre.koffmann, @russellblaikie @chef_andrewmcconnell and @chefaaroncarr what a feast - thank you! We can’t wait to do it all again next year.
Still on a high from last nights soireé. We can’t stop thinking about the roast duck bao 🙌
The pop up surprise last night? Sunset helicopter rides with @corsaireaviation! It was a scenic loop over vineyards, the Wilyabrup creek, Cape to Cape track and back over the Fraser Gallop Estate and House. What a joy! 🚁 Thank you to all our guests, and to the people who made it such a successful evening - @gourmetescape @audiaustralia @chef_andrewmcconnell @chefaaroncarr @casscharlick @southsoundevents_bymandyb
We’ve had two incredible nights hosting @gourmetescape soirées - thank you to all who’ve joined us and made it such a joy and a success. The food was sensational, thanks @chef_andrewmcconnell and @chefaaroncarr. The weather was kind to us, too. Could the evening get any better? A surprise helicopter ride was the ultimate way to watch the sun set, captured so beautifully by @katehoffman_. Rosé with a view!
Every trip we make to Melbourne, we visit Andrew McConnell’s @cumulusinc. Sometimes more than once - it’s that good. So we’re thrilled that @chef_andrewmcconnell is visiting Fraser Gallop Estate and preparing the canapés for the @gourmetescape Great Soireé this Friday night. Local chef @chefaaroncarr will join Andrew, and we wait with bated breath to see what delicacies they prepare.
