Overview

Overview

Mamre Brook is one of the most famous places in the Barossa Valley and the wines featuring the grand old Mamre Brook house on the label are among Australia's favourites. The wines stand proud as a tribute to their heritage at the heart of the Barossa with all fruit sourced exclusively from this great region. 

Because Barossa is synonymous with Shiraz, people are always surprised at how good Cabernet from the region is. A medium-to-full bodied wine, it’s plush and mouth filling with fine, grainy tannins. It has a lovely, layered palate with mulberry and blackberry flavours, cassis, and cocoa powder and good support from the oak. A seamless structure and lingering flavour.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Complex layered wine, brimming with notes of fresh black currants, and dark chocolate.

Flavours and Palate

Medium to full bodied, the palate is richly layered with complex powdery tannins. Concentrated flavours of dark forest berries, and bramble enhance the seamless structure and lingering mouthfeel enhanced by integrated oak maturation.

Viticulture

Viticulture

The 2017/18 was characterised by long dry periods and regular heat spikes favourable for ripening fruit. The hot dry weather contributed to a delay in sugar accumulation during the last phase of ripening – at this stage, patience was required and rewarded. Autumn rainfall was below average, however during the latter part of Winter, good rains assisted with vine growth in Spring. Summer brought dry weather, the 3rd driest in 17 years – this continued into Vintage with dry weather for the entire vintage.
