Streicker Wines is a maker of award-winning premium wines located in the Margaret River Region of Western Australia.
Established in 2002 by John Streicker with his original purchase of the Yallingup Protea Farm and Vineyards, Streicker Wines today also encompasses two other vineyards - Bridgeland and Ironstone - with a total of 153 hectares currently under vine.
The Yallingup vineyard is set on 120 hectares in the Yallingup sub-region of the Margaret River Region.Besides wine grapes, both table grapes and flowers are grown at this property, and the distinctive labels of Streicker Wines represent different “pairings” of varieties of flowers and grapes.
Yallingup enjoys similarly favourable climate and soil conditions to the other Streicker Wines’ vineyards in the Margaret River area.
Streicker’s Ironstone vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards in the Margaret River region in the sub-region of Wilyabrup. Its soils are exceptionally well suited for premium viticulture use.
West of the planted area toward the Indian Ocean, a previous owner had created a pine plantation with disastrous results. As the pines grew, the water table at the vineyards dropped, stressing the vines. The pine plantation also became a haven for kangaroos whose nightly frolics damaged vines and trellises.
Streicker Wines acquired the property in 2003 and implemented a rehabilitation plan that included building a dam to increase water capacity, removing the pine trees, and pruning and reworking the vines.
The results are exciting. Not only are the vines robust and healthy, but because the roots had grown deeper when the water table was low, they now pass through a variety of soil types that add great subtleties to the rich flavours of this premium block.
The Bridgeland vineyard is one of the most picturesque properties in the Margaret River wine region. Originally developed from prime farming land in 1998/99 under its previous owner, the vineyard has shown clear signs that it has the potential to produce wines of exceptionally high quality.
This 207-hectare property has one of the largest dams in the region, about one kilometre in length and covering about 18 hectares.
Bridgelands is the southernmost vineyard in the Streicker Wines portfolio, with a cooler climate and longer growing season than the other vineyards.
