Expert Reviews

Made by the feisty Simon Burnell. It’s released too young, but that’s the price you pay – or don’t in this case. Has a slight whiff of chlorine which is no problem really – reminds me of cleaning the pool as a young man – dark fruit, dark chocolate, bay leaf and spice. It’s medium bodied, sure and firm in the mouth with appealing open weave grainy tannin, a pleasing sense of graphite kind of ‘minerality’, even acidity and a boysenberry and cocoa finish. Serious wine for the money. Rating 91 - Gary Walsh, Wine Front (AUG/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Hints of dusty lavender, nori seaweed, fresh meat (no kidding) and dark chocolate. Behind all that ripe red and black fruits eventually come through.

Palate

Medium to full bodied, Despite the blacker fruited nose, the palate seems more blue. It is densely structured, with layers of ripe, nutty tannins.

Cellaring

Drinking well from release, but for those who appreciate maturity, it should happily reward cellaring for 5 to 10 years (or more ?).

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible. The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family’s confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.

From the release of their very first wines, their efforts were quickly rewarded with critical acclaim, wine show success and most importantly, glowing feedback from wine lovers.
