This non-oaked Verdelho tastes like a lemon slushie and passion fruit paradise! The finish is lengthy, with a sharp acidity and a sense of freshness. Great to drink now or this variety will age well, developing a nutty profile!

About Ashbrook Estate

Ashbrook Estate are a family owned and operated winery established by the Devitt family in 1975. They are one of the oldest wineries in the region, being planted around the same time as much bigger and more recognized estates such as Vasse Felix and Leeuwin Estate. There is little pomp and circumstance at Ashbrook, however. At heart, they are a family focused on growing high quality grapes and turning their estate fruit into outstanding wines expressive of site. Ashbrook Estate’s philosophy is to use minimal intervention in the manufacture of their wines (“keep it simple!”). They are one of a select few Margaret River wineries to use only grapes grown on a single Estate where the wine is also made, bottled and packaged. It is a beautiful winding driveway into their Wilyabrup property in north-west Margaret River – watch out for kangaroos though. All grape picking and vine pruning is carried out by hand. The vineyard comprises seventeen hectares on highly weathered, ancient, well-drained red-brown loamy gravel. Vines are planted just off the contour to protect slopes from erosion. All vineyard blocks have grassed waterways to enable the water from heavy downpours of rain to leave the vineyard without causing damage. The vineyard is not cultivated in order to protect soil structure. Instead, it is organically mulched to provide nutrients to the vines, increase soil humus and to moderate soil temperature. Guinea fowl roam the vineyard to reduce insect pressure, and a Lyre Trellis allows good light penetration and aeration to reduce disease pressure. Every process, whether viticultural or in the winery, is overseen by a family member. Catherine Edwards (nee Devitt) is the winemaker, Kingsley Edwards (her husband) is viticulturalist and vineyard manager is Richard, her brother. No outside contractors are used. Catherine was born on the first day of Ashbrook’s 1981 vintage, the night after Jancis Robinson shared dinner at their home. She has a history working in cell biology and holds degrees in science (biochemistry) as well as wine technology and viticulture. She’s completed nine vintages at Ashbrook Estate and has been senior winemaker since 2014. She and Kingsley live on the estate with their two young children. - Little Peacock
