Ashbrook Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The Margaret River is still one of the country’s powerhouse regions for Sauvignon Blanc and Ashbrook are one of the leading wineries in the district. Best appreciated with prawns and a garlic aioli this wine shows the immense appeal of this white variety. It’s full of ripe passionfruit flavours that are heady and fresh before a zesty palate that dances with citrus intensity and gentle acids.

Winemaker's Notes

A fullness & softness not often seen in Sauvignon Blanc with perfumed fresh passionfruit aromas, moderate grassy undertones & rich powerful tropical fruit flavours. A lovely long palate finishing full, clean & dry. Enjoy with fresh seafood, fruits and mature cheeses. The wine is bottled in a screw cap to ensure it retains its freshness over a long period.

Pale straw; the bouquet is complex, with a mix of herb, grass and a hint of the tropical fruit to follow on the palate; plenty of overall character.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Distinctly grassy characters on the bouquet suggest there may be some oak (there is none), the firm palate offering some gooseberry and kiwi fruit, backed by firm acidity and a long finish.

Offers a clean bouquet of gentle tropical fruits and touches of grass, then a long, focused palate with interwoven strands of gooseberry and acidity; very good mouthfeel and aftertaste.

Ray Jordan (2008 Vintage) says
Beautiful fruit-driven sav Blanc bursting with intense and lively tropical fruits. The aroma is compelling and the palate powerful and zippy. Tasted not long after a bottling but there's plenty in there to suggest 2009 will be a good year for it.

A gentle mix of grass, herbs, gooseberry and tropical fruits with balanced acidity; plenty of texture.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Brightly coloured and spotlessly clean; a complex web of gooseberry, spice and tropical fruit runs through a palate with a long finish.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Super-intense and powerful; very strong varietal character, flooded with ripe gooseberry and passionfruit; not phenolic.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Clean; light mineral, herb and gooseberry aromas; more attack and presence run through to a long finish on the palate.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Full-on complexity, funky/smoky; very rich, very ripe; almost sweet.

Ray Jordan (2003 Vintage) says
Powerful and pungent wine with a healthy whack of sweet tasting alcohol giving a slight warmth to the palate. Plenty of tropical fruit characters in there with an unctuous melon flavour. Finishes quite dry

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow; a mix of gooseberry, tropical and grass aromas, then a palate with abundant flavour and more weight than many, counterbalanced by fine acidity on the finish. Silver medal Sheraton Wine Awards 2001 (remembering there is only one gold, one silver and one bronze awarded in each wine group).
