This comes from the Shovelgate Vineyard down at Margaret River. It’s a light bodied chardie but will excellent and distinctive minerally lines. There’s a little spicy citrus character with a neat working of the oak into the fruit. Touch of restrained stone fruit white peach and a final splash of citrus competes the picture.
Leafy black currant and a sliver of black olive on the nose make a statement that this is Margaret River. It’s a medium to full bodied wine with sinewy savoury tannins and a little chocolaty character with those rich blackcurrant flavours. Dry firmish finish. Got a few years in it.
Jane Brook Shovelgate Vineyard chardonnay 2011
This comes of Jane Brook’s Margaret River vineyard.It’s creamy with lots of mealy nectarine characters on
the palate. A little peaches and cream adds further complexity with a light touch of roasted cashew oak.
Spicy lift on the finish completes a neatly crafted wine.

Jane Brook Shovelgate Vineyard cabernet sauvignon 2011
Captures the distinctive characters of Margaret River perfectly. Tobacco leaf and black olive on the nose with
a trace of dark chocolate and blackcurrant. The palate is tense and tight with a mineral savoury oak influence.
Nicely integrated firm tannins with a slightly astringent finish keeping it nice and controlled.
