vintage

Our Redbrook Cabernet Sauvignon was picked in early April.

winemaking

The fruit was was cold soaked for 4-5 days. Wild fermentation then took place, which lasted 10 days. Extended skin contact was carried out for another 15 days until the desired texture, structure and style was achieved. Following pressing the wine was transferred into French oak hogsheads of which 18% were new with the balance being 2-4 years old. After 14 months in barrel, and being topped monthly, each individual barrel was tasted and assessed to determine which barrels were included in the final blend. The wine was then carefully blended and bottled, with extended maturation in bottle prior to release.

If you are looking for a Margaret River cabernet that is as classy as it is classic, with intensity of varietal cassis flavour springing from a medium-bodied palate at modest alcohol, go no further. Many vinification methods were used, and once in barrel, each was monitored for its development; thereafter, the wine spent 14 months in French hogsheads (20% new). To 2039.

the real review 2019

huon hooke, march 2019

Deep red colour with a good tint of purple, the bouquet showing lovely fresh cassis, violet and blackberry aromas and flavours. It has full-body and fine tannins, which are supple but provide good structure, and the middle is sweetly fruity before the tannins wash in on the finish. A classy wine which drinks well now and will age superbly.

Good smelling wine. Black fruit, lavender and roasted red capsicum, dark chocolate and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, plenty of grainy tannin, slightly sharp acidity, but taken in the swell of savoury and dark fruit flavour. Finish is good and long, no shortage of tannin dragging along. Has distinct character, which is good to see.

biggest australian tasting ever, june 2019

I love the aromas of bay leaf, sage, Thai basil and nutmeg that add to the delight of the brambleberries and cedar on offer. These follow through to a palate where the acidity really waters your mouth and the firm tannins focus the vibrant blue fruit. Drink in 2021.
