SILVER | 2018 New Zealand International Wine Competition

Our single-vineyard Shiraz Rosé is named after Trevor and Marilyn’s two daughters Trudi and Susan, who love to drink this style of wine.

Our 2018 Shiraz Rosé is pretty in pink, capturing the fragrant aromas of spring blossoms, red apple and peach. Invigoratingly mouth-filling, our dry style of Rosé exhilarates the palate with juicy fruit flavours of fresh-picked raspberries and strawberries, accompanied by delicate mandarin notes.

All this is gently wrapped up by the undeniable ‘strawberries and cream’ wow factor, woven into the oh-so-long silky finish.

2016 – 90 points, Mike Bennie, Wine Business Magazine: Crowd-pleasing kind of wine here, and it’s set around a sweet-fruit strawberries-and-cream feel. The perfume shows exactly that, while the palate is strawberry kissed but perks up with a zingy finish. Worth a visit.

The growing season in Eden Valley started off well, with Winter 2017 rainfall up slightly higher than average.

In Spring drier soils, combined with warmer than average Spring days meant the vine canopies grew quickly; flowering well and setting a good number of bunches.

Summer rainfall in EV was down on average. January and February were warm and dry, with very warm temperatures in February slowing down the pace of ripening. With the lower summer rainfall, growers with access to water, soil moisture monitoring, good irrigation management and healthy soils experienced less stress – and subsequently delivered sound fruit and consistent yields. These are all practices that Brockenchack invest heavily into. The Indian summer of March and early April was what some people are calling ‘the icing on the cake’, with average temperatures, without extremes.

We commenced hand picking for the 2018 vintage on the 1st of March with our Pinot Noir the first grapes to come off the vine. Pinot Grigio and Riesling were then machine picked in the first week of March. Chardonnay and Rosé came off next around mid-March. Shiraz harvesting commenced in the last week of March and continued through to the 11th of April with each tier being picked at different times. The last two to come off the vines were the Grenache on the 11th, and we wrapped it up with the Cabernet on the 12th of April – seeing out an amazing vintage for Brockenchack.

We are delighted with the high-quality grapes and great yields that this vintage delivered. The colours and flavours in our reds are exciting and the high level of natural acids in our whites reflect our great Eden Valley characteristics.

Standout varieties for the Eden Valley this year include Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet. We are very excited for all our 2018 wines to be released and especially look forward to the release of these reds in a few years’ time.
