The 24 Karat Wines vineyard is owned and run by the
Lloyd family. 2006 marked the release of its first wine, 24
Karat 2006 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. This year 24 Karat Wines will release its 2006 Chardonnay and 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 24 Karat Wines vineyard is located in the Karridale region
30 kilometres south of Margaret River, one of the foremost
wine regions in the world. The Margaret River region
is synonymous with fine wines, and people travel across the
world to sample the wines produced here. The vineyard
was established in 1997 by the Lloyd family, who run the vineyard
and oversee the production of 24 Karat Wines.
The 24 Karat Philosophy
Our philosophy centres on the simple desire to make fine wine. Although
our vineyard and the Margaret River region are in their ‘infancy’ when
compared to the ‘Old World’ wine regions, all indications
are that this region is producing world acclaimed and iconic
quality wines. We aspire to produce wines that take full
advantage of the unique combination of climate, soil and geology
that go to make up the Karridale terroir, rather than chasing
the big, brassy wines favoured by some critics.
At 24 Karat Wines we intend to produce wines that have the elements
of elegance and finesse, and lower alcohol levels, which are
very approachable for drinkers. We made the conscious decision
to restrict our wine making until our vines had matured to ensure
that we do not produce young, insipid wines lacking concentration
and flavour. Our first vintage in 2006 came from vines
that were 7 and 8 years old. The fruit used to produce our
wines is sourced only from our vineyard. It is all a part
of the commitment to making fine wine, embodied by our philosophy
here at 24 Karat Wines.
