Arlewood Estate

Arlewood Estate

Amberley was retained as a brand after the original vineyard and winery were sold a few years ago. The fruit is sourced from vineyards around Margaret River and invariably the wines deliver way beyond their price point. The reds in particular have been very good with a particular style of vibrant pure fruit expression a feature.

Arlewood chardonnay 2014 ($35)

A small production wine that is still showing such tightness and restraint yet with a little more time will emerge into something rather impressive. Melony grapefruit characters with a nutty minerality. The palate is long and fine with real persistence. Like the structure and mouthfeel of this excellent little chardonnay.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 5 Years

Arlewood cabernet sauvignon 2013 ($35)

A medium-bodied cabernet which appears to show the influence of some more southern vineyard fruit from Margaret River. Smoothly integrated palate with fine tannins and a gentle hint of oak. The blackcurrant fruit is juicy and plump but with a nice closing tightness to focus the finish.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 10 years

Arlewood sauvignon blanc semillon 2016 ($22)

Bursting with pungent ripe tropical fruit. There’s a decent hit of passionfruit pulp and loads of other tropical goodies making for an enticing opening. The palate is loaded with vibrant crunchy fruit lifted with a crunch acidity. Has a slightly flinty character on the finish.
SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 4 years
