Brookland Valley is the only company that controls vineyards over the length and breadth of Margaret River. Harvets from the north are invariably sweeter and fuller in flavour, particularly the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are all hand picked and sorted into open top fermenters for vinification through wild indigenous yeast over the course of ten days. Batches are gently pressed off and basket pressed for completion of malolactic, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak.
Deep plum colour. Ripe and intense cassis and spice aromas over hints of tobacco leaf and leather, a light leafiness balanced out by fine French oak. Classic Margaret River characters of cassis, ripe plum and dried fruit flavours are complemented by hints of dark chocolate. Structure, fine tannins and oak spice provide structure, complexity and length to the palate.
