2019 Evans & Tate Redbrook Estate Shiraz
The Collective Review
Evans and Tate are one of Western Australia’s original wineries. They now have a strong international presence and can be found exported to over 14 countries across the world.
Their Redbrook Estate Shiraz is a wine that has contributed to the huge haul of accolades from Evans and Tate. It has a unique style due to the winemaking process. Fruit from mature vineyards in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River (along with a small parcel from a special vineyard in Karridale) is hand-picked and cold soaked with 90% whole bunches prior to wild fermentation. This wine was aged in seasoned large-format French oak for 9 months which led to lovely, savoury and peppery aromatics.
The resulting wine is medium-bodied with lovely perfume and wonderful fine-boned tannin structures. This wine continues to impress fetching 96 points from Ray Jordan and 94 points from Erin Larkin. A real standout.
A mighty good partner to the Cabernet from the same vintage. This is thick and densely concentrated with lashings of dark plum, fruitcake and rich dark chocolate. Add to that some mulberry and savoury oak influences and you have an outstanding example of Shiraz from the heart of Margaret River. Top 100 wines Read more

Hand picked, 90% whole bunches, wild ferment, matured for 9 months in old, large-format French oak. This kind of vinification should be more widespread in Margaret River, where the shiraz fruit doesn't respond as well to heavy doses of oak as it does in South Australia. It's a different beast here, responding to a soft hand, and this wine is testament to the goods that such an attitude can yield. Spicy, silky and plump: this is an elegant wine and it has been treated as such.
Dusty dry earth/terracotta aromas greet the first nose, hints of brown spices, the palate full bodied and again drying and savoury, with those same baked earth notes. Closes with a firm grip of tannin.

Style GuideLight Intense
Vibrant, floral notes coupled with mulberry and blood plum fruits are married with complex and textural elements of fresh earth, peat and white pepper. Medium-bodied with great drive and length of flavour. Vibrancy and purity of fruit are at the forefront of the style.
The 2019 growing season was not without challenge, but our mature vineyards, as always, excelled. A mild and very steady vintage allowed for slow, measured flavour and tannin development. The result is medium-bodied wines with lovely perfume and wonderful fine-boned tannin structures.
Sourced primarily from our mature vineyards in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, this wine also contains one very special parcel of fruit from the more southern Karridale sub-region.
Hand-picked and cold soaked with 90% whole bunches. Wild fermentation. This wine was aged in seasoned large-format French oak for 9 months which led to lovely, savoury and peppery aromatics that define the unique style of Redbrook Estate Shiraz.
