Overview

The 2012 vintage was another excellent vintage in Margaret River. High winter rainfall saw the vines replenish vital water supplies for the growing season to follow. A warm summer meant that sugar accumulated steadily in the berries and with careful monitoring of the fruit we were able to ensure the fruit was harvested when flavour was at its peak.

Selected vineyard parcels were harvested and gently pressed to extract the finest quality juice. A combination of stainless steel and French oak fermentation has provided a wine of great freshness and complexity. The wine was matured on yeast lees for four to five months with regular lees stirring to build texture in the wine. Carefully selected components were blended, receiving minimal fining and filtration prior to bottling.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Brookland Valley is considered a benchmark winemaker of the world-renowned Margaret River region. And not only in our corner of the world: the highly regarded James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2009 Edition has named us "Winery of the Year". We are truly flattered and driven to uphold a reputation that is only as good as each new vintage.

The Brookland Valley winery and cellar door is situated in the heart of the Margaret River, in the Wilyabrup sub-region along Caves Road.

Our story began in 1984 when vineyard consultants Brian Croser and Tony Jordan were employed to assist in the establishment of Brookland Valley. The estate vineyard was planted with classic cultivars Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

Brookland Valley now has enviable fruit sources from premium vineyards in five of Margaret River's six sub-regions, providing a brilliant palette of flavours from which to craft our wines. The vineyards spread over the length of Margaret River from Yallingup in the north to Karridale in the south, representing the very best flavours of the region.

From the beginning our winemaking philosophy has been clear:100% pure Margaret River wines, crafted from classic cultivars with minimal winemaking intervention. This allows the characteristics of each particular variety to be a focus, and the resultant wines to truly reflect their terroir.

We are honoured to be the region's most highly decorated producer in Australian wine shows, and named “Winery of the Year” in the highly regarded James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2009 Edition.
