Despite sitting up close and personal to the region of the Great Southern, Pemberton is acknowledged as its own wine region, and a young one at that. It was gazetted in 2006 and is shooting up the charts as one of the country’s most exciting emerging regions. It is located northwest of Denmark with an altitude of approximately 150 metres above sea level.
Pemberton’s climate is Mediterranean although slightly warmer and with higher humidity and more sunshine than the Great Southern sub-regions. Pemberton is characterised by lateritic gravelly sands and gravelly loam soils underlying clay.
Singlefile produces its Fumé Blanc (oaked Sauvignon Blanc) and Pinot Gris from the Stoney Crossing Vineyard in Pemberton.
