Practicing Organic

Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.


Tasting Notes

With the climate north of the Margaret River township being ideal for producing a Rhone style red, Ashbrook planted Shiraz in 1998. They consistently turn out this great value Shiraz with all the classic red fruits notes and structured tannins. The wine is matured in 100% French oak barriques (26% new) for 2 years, then further stored in bottle for 18 months before release.
