The Brash Vineyard may not be a household name, but the juice from this Margaret River producer is much more serious than expected.

A little credit has to go to Bruce Dukes (Domaine Naturaliste) who knows how to bring the best out of a wine, and this plush but firm red is right in the drinking zone.

Drink now or hold for many more years yet.

Expert Reviews

Machine-harvested, crushed, destemmed to a static fermenter for 12 days, matured for 14 months in French oak (50% new). Bright, clear crimson; powerful for cabernet, with cassis and mulberry fruit in high relief, the oak impact less obvious that expected, but the tannins on song. Its best days are well around the corner. 92 points - James Halliday's Wine Companion

Flashy oak on stern, sturdy fruit. The quintessential ‘now or later’ style. Boysenberry, blackcurrant, bay leaves and lots of stringy, dusty, assertive tannin. You can certainly tuck in now but medium to long term cellaring will be well rewarded. 93 points - Campbell Mattinson

Medium to deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is very sweetly ripe and berry-ish, with clean mulberry to blackberry flavours, backed by stylish oak. The palate is equally stylish and clean, elegant and intense, with beautifully matched fruit and classy oak. Very sustained finish and aftertaste. A very smart cabernet, with a big future. 94 points - Huon Hooke

How's it taste?

The Brash Vineyard, situated in the sub-region of Yallingup Hills, has in 2014 produced an exceptional Cabernet with layers of blackberry and blackcurrant supported by herbal complexity and subtle oak. Delicious.

How was it made?

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon that is matured in 50% new oak for 14 months.

Who made it?

Brash Vineyard is located in the Yallingup Hills, in the Margaret River. The company is owned by Chris and Anne Carter, Brian and Ann McGuinness and Rik and Jenny Nitert. The vineyard was planted in 2000. The majority of the fruit is sold to other wineries in the region, with only around 10% reserved for the Brash Vineyard label. This equates to only about 250 cases of each of their four wines produced each vintage - Cabernet, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The focus here is on quality and site specific wines, rather than quantity. All of the wines are produced at Naturaliste Vintners, under the watchful eye of Senoir Winemaker Bruce Dukes. Brash wines are alwasy low-volume wines made to the highest possible standard.

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
