Vineyard and Region

Brash Vineyard is situated in the wine appellation of Margaret River, in the sub-region of the Yallingup Hills.

The Yallingup Hills are located at the northern end of what is recognised as one of the finest viticulture climates in the world — a gentle Mediterranean climate further enhanced by the moderating effects of ocean on three sides. These positive effects include a lack of frost damage in vines as well as ensuring cool, relaxed evenings over summer months when vines can rest from the warm to hot days that prevail.

Brash Vineyard has 18 hectares of vines situated amongst towering jarrah and marri trees, which provide wonderful amphitheatres for growing vines, protecting the grapes from the elements of weather. Grapes grown are:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 8ha
  • Shiraz 3.25ha
  • Malbec 1.2ha
  • Chardonnay 4.1ha
  • Sauvignon Blanc 1.6ha

The vines were first planted in 2000 and years of subtle adjustment now sees the vineyard growing each of our varieties on the site best suited to that grape type.

Brash Vineyard sauvignon blanc 2016 ($22.95)

Such a beautiful expression of sauvignon blanc with a vineyard stamp all over it. Crunchy passionfruit and pear with a crisp minerally acid bringing it all to life. It shows how good Marg savvies can be, delivering surprising complexity and flavour impact.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Brash Vineyard chardonnay 2015 ($34.95)

Striking and complex chardonnay. Notes of brioche, pear and cashew on the nose with a subtle char. The palate has a juicy richness while the oak and fine acidity hold its lines to a sustained finish. There’s just that hint of vanillin oak and stone fruit on the finish that gives a little more when you think it’s done.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 6 years

Brash Vineyard cabernet sauvignon 2015 ($39.95)

Comes off a single vineyard up on Yallingup Hills. These vines now have a bit of age on them and it shows. This is a lovely cabernet. It’s so well balanced and poised with the integration of fine chalky tannins, super fine oak and smooth intense fruit creating a polished glossy palate. Still reasonably tight, but there is a sweet fruit in there. It will cellar for a number of years.
SCORE 95/100 CELLAR 15 years

Brash Vineyard shiraz 2014 ($34.95)

A most impressive shiraz. Spicy with notes of cherry and cinnamon with a little black pepper and even some interesting black olive. Smooth seamlessly structured palate with fine supportive tannins. This is the style of shiraz that northern Margaret River does so well.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 12 years
