Evans & Tate found its home at Redbrook vineyard in 1974, when it was initially planted to dry-grown Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Nestled in the heart of the Wilyabrup wine region in Margaret River, 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 and Evans & Tate. Consistently producing powerful wines full of rich fruit character, if cellared correctly, these beautiful wines will continue to reward for many years to come.
Matured in large- and medium-format French oak (15% new) for up to 15 months. 2018 saw the most cabernet franc and malbec ever included in this wine, alongside the cabernet sauvignon and merlot. And to good effect! This is a cracker. Succulent red fruits on the palate, backed by salty spice and a frankly slinky texture. The tannins are shapely and seductive. The whole package is hugely impressive. But not surprising: The Redbrook range of wines rock.
