The new Redbrook Estate range delivers varietally expressive, fruit-driven wines that are ready to enjoy upon release, with no compromise on the quality and style expected from those bestowed with the Redbrook name.

vintage

2016 was a truly distinct vintage. A dry, warm season was punctuated with a tropical rain event in late January. This natural rainfall pushed back harvest dates and allowed for better vine balance during ripening, smaller bunches and tiny berries. The resultant fruit had wonderful thick skins, incredible concentration and excellent varietal identity. 

Sourced primarily from our mature vineyards in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, this wine also contains one very special parcel of fruit from the more southern Karridale sub-region. 

winemaking

Handpicked and cold soaked with a portion of whole bunch fermentation. This wine was aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak for 12 months, which led to lovely, savoury and peppery aromatics that define the unique style of Redbrook Estate Shiraz.
