Winery Tasting Notes

The warmer than average weather conditions in December were handled well by the vines due to excellent spring growing conditions with good rainfall. Abundant Marri blossom leading into vintage reduced the necessity

to apply protective bird netting with weather conditions during the berry development period providing near perfect ripening conditions for all varieties.

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.
