Island Brook Estate

Island Brook Estate

A small family-owned boutique vineyard and winery located directly between Busselton and Margaret River (you will see the red truck first). Fruit comes from 30-year-old dry-grown semillon vines and established cabernet sauvignon, which produces the standout wines from the estate.

 

Island Brook chardonnay 2014 ($24)

Bursting with minerally nectarine and brioche on the nose. A little citrus edge and some nice melony influences add another dimension. The palate is flavoursome with a subtle acidity and good oak fruit integration. Has a creamy and slightly nutty texture and flavour. Nice wine in the short term.
SCORE 88/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Island Brook cabernet sauvignon 2013 ($29)

Scented bouquet of leafy blackcurrant and tobacco with a trace of black olive provide an intriguing opening to this attractive medium-bodied cabernet. The tannins are quite fine and neatly integrated while the oak is unobtrusive but important. Sweet fruit characters with a sustained finish.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 5 Years
