Ashbrook Estate is one of the longest established wineries in the Margaret River region located in the heart of Wilyabrup. Family owned and operated since 1975, all wines are crafted from handpicked estate grown fruit. All processing, winemaking, bottling and packaging are closely controlled using the Estate’s own private facilities.
James Halliday says: “This estate is one of the quietest and highest achievers in Australia, maintaining excellent viticulture and fastidious winemaking.”

Fragrant on the nose but there's more than a suggestion of mouth-perfume here too. It's a good look, so to speak. It helps promote a sense of succulence, in a context of nettle, tropical fruit and citrus flavour. Cutting acidity and length but a certain richness is already on show.

Winery Tasting Notes
A classic example of what this variety can achieve in a warm maritime climate. Made in an unwooded style to retain and enhance varietal fruit freshness.
Staggered harvesting of fruit from a combination of estate sites and trellising systems allows expression of a spectrum of aromas and flavours from sweet grassiness to punchy ripe citrus in the finished wine.
This complexity also provides exceptional structure and palate weight with considerable ageing potential.
Cellaring for five or more years is rewarded with rich complex nut, straw and toast characters in harmony with ripe lemon and sweet grassy nuances while still retaining a pleasantly surprising level of freshness, vibrancy and length.
