Winery Tasting Notes

Semillon might not be the most fashionable variety but when you tuck into something as deliciously appealing as the Ashbrook, you just have to wonder why. The Devitts have been turning out terrific examples of this variety for years and this is another beauty.

Loaded with fresh fruit flavours from the first sniff through to the final lick of the lips. Citrus and fresh mown grass on the nose, with an understated nutty background. The palate is zingy, lingering to a long finish. Nice cut of citrus and acid focuses the finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

“This estate is one of the quietest and highest achievers in Australia, maintaining excellent viticulture and fastidious winemaking. It is hard to choose between the complex, herby, tropical Semillon, or subtly oaked, long Chardonnay, the crisp Sauvignon Blanc or briar- and cassis Cabernet.” James Halliday.

In 1975, after considerable evaluation and thorough searching for land suitable for premium wine production, the Devitt family purchased and named Ashbrook Estate in Wilyabrup.

It is one of the ten original vineyard wineries in Margaret River and to this day is still owned and operated by the Devitts. With abundant technical expertise, a rare and highly sought after location, an ideal climate and a well equipped winery, Ashbrook has an enviable record for consistently producing high quality wines.

At Ashbrook the vines are mainly grown on specialised Lyre trellis to maximise flavour development. All fruit is hand picked. Ashbrook is one of the few wine producers where all fruit processed is estate grown and all wine is made and bottled on site using their own equipment. This gives greater focus and control over the total winemaking process.
