OUR STORY

The SS Omrah was an iron hulled steamship that regularly crossed the equator between the United Kingdom and Australia in the early 1900s. The first Australian port on its journey was Albany, in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. One early passenger paid homage to his trans-oceanic voyage by naming his property in the Great Southern region after the SS Omrah. Vines were planted on the property and many moons later this fruit was used for our maiden vintage of Chardonnay in 1989.

Omrah Crossing

With the advent of steamships In the early 1900s the route through the Suez Canal drastically reduced travel time, from over four months to under six weeks. The moons on the Omrah Crossing label celebrate the length of the ship’s journey across the equator to the new world.

OMRAH CROSSING
CABERNET MERLOT 2015

Dark berry fruit aromas with hints of chocolate and mocha make quite an attractive aromatic start. Good tight grain French oak with juicy acidity give a fine structural thread to the black plum, brambly fruit with a slight herbal edge.
