Why you'll love this wine

While the variety is somewhat unheralded in this neck of the woods due to the dominant plantings and praise of cabernet, Margaret River shiraz of this quality is still something to behold, showing the two grapes can both be grown well in the same place.

Shiraz in these parts are lovely wines, with flavour profiles usually dependent on where in Margaret River it was grown.

Aromas of mulberry, licorice and black olive tapenade precede the mid-weight palate of black pepper and dark plum, held by fine-grained powdery tannins. Dense vivid fruit indicates significant ageing potential for this clean, robust, earthy drop. 

Tasting Notes

colour

Deep purple-black with a bright, red rim.

aroma

Vibrant, floral notes coupled with mulberry and blood plum fruits are married with complex and textural elements of fresh earth, peat and white pepper. 

palate

Medium-bodied with great drive and length of flavour. Vibrancy and purity of fruit are at the forefront of the style. 

cellaring

Will show youthful, perfumed notes with fresh fruit flavours upon release. For those after additional complexity and softness, three or more years of bottle age is suggested. 

Technical

vintage

The 2019 growing season was not without challenge, but our mature vineyards, as always, excelled. A mild and very steady vintage allowed for slow, measured flavour and tannin development. The result is medium-bodied wines with lovely perfume and wonderful fine-boned tannin structures.

winemaking

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.

Hand-picked 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.

Reviews

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion 2023

Hand picked, 90% whole bunches, wild ferment, matured for 9 months in old, large-format French oak. This kind of vinification should be more widespread in Margaret River, where the shiraz fruit doesn't respond as well to heavy doses of oak as it does in South Australia. It's a different beast here, responding to a soft hand, and this wine is testament to the goods that such an attitude can yield. Spicy, silky and plump: this is an elegant wine and it has been treated as such.
