Expert Reviews

4 Stars - "Oak driven altertive – quite full on vanilla characters on the nose and layers of oak, fruit and tight green acid that fill the palate, Very good." - Winestate Special Edition 2008 - December 2008.

94 Points - "A well handled complex style; maintains freshness and focus amidst the complex toasty oak; very long and quite mouthfilling with very good balance on the finish." - James Halliday - James Halliday Wine Companion 2009 - July 2008.

4 Stars / 92 Points - "A complex, rich barrel fermented sauvignon blanc-Semillon blend, showing intense tropical fruits, guava and passionfruit, some finer lemon grassy Semillon below and gentle oak spice. The oak impact on the palate weighs in on entry, deepening through the middle with preserved lemon and nutty/savoury complexity finishing fine and dry." - Nick Stock - Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 - November 2008.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Smithbrook vineyard is located amongst majestic “tall trees” on a pristine hill in the Pemberton wine region in the south west corner of Western Australia.

Planted in the late 1980s, the vineyard represents the most significant mature vineyard in the region. The warm Indian Ocean to the West and the cool Southern Ocean to the south create a maritime climate.

Smithbrook focuses on two key varietals - Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot, identified as the best varieties for this region.

Smithbrook has a natural, sustainable approach to managing the vineyard; low-yielding dry grown vines, roaming Guinea Fowl to control insects and no harmful sprays all assist to grow balanced vines. Vineyard philosophy employed includes rigorous programme of heavy pruning, minimal irrigation and low cropping in order to increase the fruit quality of the vineyard.
