Brookland Valley winery is an outstanding producer that are given a 5* star by James Halliday and whose wines picked up 4 gold medals at the International Wine Challenge and Decanter World Wine Awards. Enough about all the accolades, what about the wine!
Is Margaret River the leading Australian region for this classic blend, I certainly think so!
Where this wine really stands out is in the freshness of the fruit that you get from this region. Aromas of Intense classic red berries, blackberries, blueberries and crushed bay leaf with subtle hints of cigar box from 14 months in French oak. A palate of rich cassis, plums, olive and cedar complemented by subtle hints of mint, tomato leaf and dark chocolate with fine tannins and a long impressive finish.
This is an elegant, lifted and hugely flavoursome wine that would grace any dinner table. Buy it on the deal price and you are getting a great wine at a superb price.
SC Rating - OUTSTANDING / EXCEPTIONAL (for the money) (Adam)
