Winery Tasting Notes

A pure, yet complex example of Margaret River Chardonnay with half the wine matured for eight months in French oak barriques, and the remainder in stainless steel tanks to retain fruit freshness and vibrancy. The finished wine is cellared on the Estate for another 12 months to ensure total balance and harmonization between fruit purity and oak complexity. Will reward cellaring over the next 5 years.

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.
