John Evans and John Tate started planting vines in Wilyabrup, in the heart of Margaret River, in 1974. They named the vineyard Redbrook, after Tate's beloved Daschund. It was in 1987 that the Evans & Tate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc (Dry White) was first released. Thirty years on, it remains one of Australia's best selling Margaret River wine brand.
Deep, purple red with a lovely bright purple rim. A pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon - blackberry, olive and a fresh leafy lift makes this wine unmistakably from Margaret River. Long, elegant and medium bodied with lovely mid-palate texture and fine, succulent "chamois" tannins.
What a beautiful wine to drink. It's not profound but it does so many things right. It tastes of blackcurrant, chocolate, violets and gum nuts, all these flavours swinging ever-so-persuasively through to a satisfying finish.
