About Evans & Tate's Redbrook: Redbrook represents a range crafted from only the most exceptional fruit parcels of the vintage that enable a bold, thought provoking expression of Margaret River. Full of rich fruit character, these beautiful wines will rewards for many years to come.
Vinification and Maturation: Our Redbrook Chardonnay Vineyards have consistently produced our benchmark Chardonnay for many years. At perfect ripeness, the fruit was selectively handpicked at dawn. The fruit was gently squeezed and continuously tasted to ensure only juice of the finest quality was used in the final blend.
This first juice fraction equated to less than 500L per tonne. All juice went directly from the press into new French oak puncheons to undergo wild fermentation on solids, imparting textural and aromatic complexity to the wine.
Once blended, the wine was stabilised and filtered only once prior to bottling and extended bottle maturation prior to release. This minimal handling has helped to express our unique, delicate Redbrook house style that will develop great complexity over time.
Colour: Brilliant condition. Pale to mid straw with a youthful green rim.
Aroma: Citrus, and lifted stone fruit aromas drives the nose of the wine with delicate savoury aromas of dried herbs, malt, shortbread, and oyster shell from wild fermentation and maturation on yeast lees in large format French oak barrels.
Palate: A benchmark Chardonnay from Margaret River. Tight citrus / lime flavours with honeydew melon and white peach driving through the palate to a very long flavoursome finish. Delicate savoury characters of dried herbs, fresh toast and malt from wild barrel fermentation on solids adds intriguing flavour and textural complexity.
Peak Drinking: Will cellar beyond 2025
