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.
An intensely flavoured palate with loads of flavour and distinctive Sauvignon Blanc character coming through right from the start. The juicy acidity combined with the sheer volume of middle palate flavour makes for an outstanding Margaret River style. The variety of layers of passionfruit, fig and melon drive the palate, which is superbly balanced and long. A true reflection of what WA Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for- excellent varietal character and regionality.
