Expert Reviews

"A vibrant punchy sav blanc brimming with lots of beautiful guava and gooseberry nuances with some nice elevating citrus and tart grapefruit thrown in. Theres a small amount of semillon which brings a little herbaceousness to the final mix. Good wine. Rating 91 -Ray Jordan, (09/SEP/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Immediately after opening the nose shows guava, fresh passion fruit, lemon and lime zest.

Palate

As the palate opens up there is plenty of sweet exotic tropical fruit, lemon, lime and orange with some dried herbs and nettle. There is even some spicy apple, an influence from the fruit derived from the Hilltop bock, higher up the slope.

The lovely mineral like acid that is so typically Pemberton, lifts the freshness and intensity of the flavours up to another level and enables the wine to finish crisp and savoury.

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.
