Jane Brook Estate Wines

David and Bev Atkinson have been running Jane Brook for more than 40 years – an impressive achievement. The Atkinson family is passionate about making high-quality wines from the Swan Valley and Margaret River, with a sound base founded on strong family values. The range of premium varietal wines, sparklings and fortifieds, including the distinctive Sparkling Gold, is consistently very good.

Jane Brook Shovelgate Vineyard chardonnay 2013 ($29)

This comes from the Shovelgate Vineyard down at Margaret River. It’s a light-bodied chardie but with 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 completes the picture.

SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 5 years

Jane Brook Shovelgate Vineyard cabernet sauvignon 2013 ($29)

Leafy blackcurrant 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.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 7 years
