Overview

This wine has been crafted utilising fruit sourced from a number of grower vineyards within the Margaret River region. These sites were selected due to their production of expressive, varietally distinct grapes. The parcels were separately vinified allowing maximum blending options and the selection of the best wines for this specific blend. The result is a wine that is both elegant in texture and flavour but with a robust varietal spectrum of flavours that leaves the palate begging for more.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red with crimson rim.

Aroma

The wine exhibits ripe cassis and plum fruit flavours with restrained spicy cedar overtones, hints of mocha and dried bay leaf which adds intrigue and complexity.

Palate

The palate unfolds in a myriad of layers of ripe blackberry, plum, and cassis fruit interwoven with savoury oak. The long and flavoursome finish is well supported by dry and fine tannins.

Cellaring

Will suit medium-term cellaring over the next 3 to 5 years.

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.
