Arlewood Estate La Bratta

Expert Reviews

Ray Jordan (2009 Vintage) says
A slightly different red wine where oak plays a significant but not dominant part. The fruit retains its soft generosity but the oak has been pumped up to add some complexity and texture into the wine. It's a powerful yet still silky seamless wine with some cellaring potential.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
No indication of the blend is given on the label, yet there is a distinctly savoury character to the bouquet of sandalwood, spice, anise and bramble; the palate is taut and full of nervy acidity, prominent tannins and finishing with a lingering note of tar. A very interesting wine.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
La Bratta is the village in Italy where Gary Gosattis mother was born, and grandfather made wine. The Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon that went to make this wine come from the original Arlewood Vineyard, and have produced a wine of considerable stature, its black and redcurrant fruit supported by Italianate tannins and French oak; 250 cases made.

Ray Jordan (2007 Vintage) says
A blend of merlot, malbec and cabernet sauvignon from the original Wilyabrup vineyard. Perfumed and highly scented aromas lead into a palate that has a tight angular structure threading through some fine supple fruit. Has had plenty of oak which is tying things up at the moment but with ageing it will show some real character. Dry dusty finish make it ideal as a food wine.
