WINEMAKING
Made from 100% Estate-grown Shiraz grapes, hand-harvested at 11.7°Bauméoff a lyre trellis in the cool of the morning. Gentle whole bunch pressing was carried out in small batches for extraction control.

A novel, cultured yeast recommended for young, fresh, aromatic wines was used andthe ferment stopped by taste at 0.7g/L residual sugar by sulphur addition and chilling. Minimal fining with PVPP, copper and bentonite was carried out prior to cold stabilization, filtration and bottling.

The finished wine has an attractive salmon pink colour, the nose sings of wild strawberry with hints of lychee and the palate echoes the nose with strawberry and raspberry notes preceding a crisp dry finish. Delicious with food or on its own.

Description

Now a 3rd generation winery, established by the Devitt family in 1975, Ashbrook produced its first commercial wine in 1979 and completed its 40th vintage in 2018. Currently owned and operated by Carol and Brian Devitt, daughter Catherine Edwards, son Richard and son-in-law Kingsley Edwards, Ashbrook has now been a family business for over 40 years. Only grapes handpicked and grown on the Estate are used and all processing, winemaking, bottling and packaging are closely controlled using the Estate’s own state of the art facilities.

Australia’s pre-eminent wine authority and critic, James Halliday, has awarded Ashbrook Estate a five star rating, an accolade afforded to only Australia’s top wineries. He describes the meaning of his five star rating as “Outstanding winery capable of producing wines of very high quality and, did so this year. Also will usually have at least two wines rated at 95 points or above.”

Halliday says: “This estate is one of the quietest and highest achievers in Australia, maintaining excellent viticulture and fastidious winemaking.”
