Samuel Smith migrated from Dorset England to Angaston in the colony of South Australia circa 1847, he took up work as a gardener with George Fife Angas, the virtual founder of the colony. In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale.

Evans Tate Redbrook Reserve Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Chardonnay vines fare exceptionally well in Margaret River, as appropriate shading yields intensely flavoured fruit with excellent natural acidity. The afternoon sea breezes typical of the region, cap the daytime temperatures and produce cool summer nights for which Margaret River is renowned. The balmy climes encourage ripening of the white varieties as flavour ripeness is achieved at lower Baumes with excellent acid retention. Grapes must be picked from midnight to 7am and are processed separately without delay to preserve quality and freshness.
Available in cases of 6
Case of 6
$389.50
Chardonnay is selectively hand picked across separate blocks on different dates, over the course of two or three hours as flavours peak. Parcels are chilled to 5C and passed through an airbag press into new French oak 500L oak puncheons, only the finest quality pressings are retained. Barrels are vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeast, imparting great depth of flavour and aromatic complexity. Upon completion, barrels are topped up and treated to a term of maturation, regularly lees stirred to develop mouthfeel and texture. The best barrels are identified and assembled into the final wine, followed by an extended term of bottle age under the Evans & Tate cellars before release.

Evans Tate
Evans & Tate were at the forefront of the Margaret River's rise to international recognition as one of the world's great winegrowing appellations

Like many tales, Evans & Tate's does not begin in Australia. Lionel Teitelbaum was born in 1899 in a village called Nicopol in the Ukraine. Still a young boy when he emigrated to Australia in 1909, Lionel was bounding with confidence and enthusiasm. Such energy translated into a successful family and business life, creating a solid foundation for the future Tate generations. Lionel ensured that his son John enjoyed the benefits of an education as well as an appreciation of cultural pursuits including art, music and wine.

Evans Tate

As his business career matured, John Tate was able to turn one of his lifelong dreams into reality when he purchased a small vineyard with friend and business partner John Evans. The following year the Tate involvement in the industry became absolute with the purchase of a small winery called Gnangara Wines, located in the historic Swan Valley, just north of Perth.

The primary aim at Evans & Tate is to make wines that are truly expressive of the best terroirs within the Margaret River region. A state of the art 7500 tonne crush winery, built with this philosophy in mind, is sited at the Lionel Vineyard in Jindong. The winery reflects the professionalism and commitment shown in all areas of the company.

Evans & Tate have invested heavily in cutting edge winemaking equipment, impressive stocks of French and American oak, and the best laboratory facilities. The winery is close to all major vineyard sites from which grapes can be sourced, which gives the winemakers enough freedom to make each parcel of fruit in accordance with it's specific flavour profile and attributes.

Evans Tate

The wines of Evans & Tate have consistently merited high critical acclaim and accolades from peers and public alike. Evans & Tate has created an enviable show record over the years receiving numerous trophies and gold medals at both domestic and international competitions. With each individual style of wine, the team looks to achieve intensity of flavour, complexity and regional character.

"From its Swan Valley base 30 years ago, Evans & Tate became the largest Margaret River winery and producer. Having increased its estate vineyard holdings with the establishment of a large planting in the Jindong area, it raised substantial capital by listing on the Stock Exchange. It then turned its attention eastwards, with the acquisition of Oakridge Estate in the Yarra Valley, followed by Cranswick Wines (since sold). It became a casualty of the downturn in the market in 2005, its future direction uncertain, a merger with a US company aborted in March '07. Throughout all this turmoil, the high quality of its Margaret River wines has been maintained." -James Halliday

No single achievement has meant more to the winemaking team than the Trophy for Best Red Wine of the Competition at the 2000 International Wine Challenge in London for Evans & Tate 1999 Margaret River Shiraz. This award was especially significant as it validated the Evans & Tate viticultural and vinicultural philosophy, whilst crystallizing the Margaret River region as a truly world class winegrowing appellation.
