Overview

Brookland Valley is a truly spectacular estate located in the heart of Margaret River. The beautiful Wilyabrup Brook provides a breathtaking backdrop to the property as it ambles its way through the valley, giving life to vines alongside native flora and fauna. Brookland Valley wines are crafted to showcase elegance and refinement and are considered benchmarks of their style.

The 2015 vintage in Margaret River was characterised by persistent warm and dry conditions which resulted in an earlier than expected timing of harvest. Also contributing to the earlier picking was lower than average yields in the Chardonnay resulting in intensely flavoured fruit with bright, balanced acidity.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw in colour with a youthful green hue

Bouquet

This wine displays intense aromatics of pink grapefruit, nectarine, and stone fruit flavours overlaid with cashew nut and spice. Hints of flint, lemon zest, grilled nut and nougat provide wonderful complexity and interest

Palate

Richly flavoured, delivering a full bodied wine displaying fruit power and concentration. Barrel fermentation has lent creaminess and palate weight to a wine that finishes with extraordinary length of flavour. Wild fermentation provides added complexity to a wine of strong regional identity and power.

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.
