Two things happened when I visited the largely unknown Carldenn Estate in the Perth Hills.
Carldenn Homestead Wines – Perth Hills, WA
I discovered that the 2013 Blue Label Series Shiraz is a good wine made by Dennis Humfrey -- and certainly underpriced at $23.
I also discovered that Dennis was the father of two mates I have played cricket with for years.
Dennis has been in the wine industry in the Perth Hills since the 1970s, doing well in a region that could be classed as unfashionable.
This alone is a testament to the product and the winery.
