2021 On Point Pinot Grigio 

“It might say ‘pinot grigio’ on the label, but don’t go a-thinkin’ it’s going to be raspy and lean like a lot of them. To us, the On Point is absolutely that. It’s dry, sure, but also totally delicious and generous in our book. Ultra-juicy and bursting with baked apple and nashi, it reflects what the cooler Eden Valley subregion is capable of. Cleansing, succulent, and dangerously drinkable, it’s refreshing, roaring with flavour, softly spiced, and super sexy with roast pumpkin and herb salad.” ~Yvonne Lorkin~


“One of the first Eden Valley ferments to hit the bottle, the 2021 On Point Pinot Grigio is literally exploding out of the glass! Billowing tropical, floral and citrus aromatics make this a truly ‘scent-sational’ introduction to vintage 2021. A mouthful of zingy ruby grapefruit emerges from the citrus mist, layered over honeyed tropical -almost guava- flavours that seem to keep trundling along to a lovely length, finishing with a zippy little lemon zest kick!” ~Jane Ferrari~

90 points | Wine Pilot | Textbook Grigio fresh-cut apple and pear, with an arresting thread of saline and rock pool aromas. Plenty of refreshing crunchy acidity in the glass will satisfy during those lazy afternoons in the sun.” ~Jeni Port~

2021 Tru-Su Rose

“Here’s a shout out to all the gemologists in the house. This wine could absolutely be a liquid Padparadscha Sapphire amirite? It’s the rarest, most beautiful of all sapphires and famous for its pinky-sunset colour. Named after Trudi and Susan, daughters of Brockenchack’s owners Marilyn and Trevor Harch, this rosé looks like it’ll be lolly-like, but no. It’s dry dry dry people. You’ll feel parched just looking at it! Sipping it reveals mouthfilling, zesty textures, an edge of blackcurrant and it’s wicked with watermelon and lime salad.” ~Yvonne Lorkin~


“Brockenchack’s 2021 Tru-Su Rose made from 100% Shiraz grapes, grown on thier own Eden Valley vineyard in the Barossa. This Shiraz Rosé seems to have just ‘kissed the skins’ to pick up its unique vivid coral peach skin pinks, but has had enough contact to catch a bagful of bright aroma flavour combinations. Live juiced raspberry-cherry aromatics spiral from the glass with rose petal lift, over a spicy toffee apple back note, then the Tru-Su Rosé flavours bounce onto your palate with a splosh of raspberry velvet, snowballing on through ripe red cherries, to a fresh apple acid full stop.” ~Jane Ferrari~

2018 Zip Line Shiraz

“Here in Kiwiland we call a ‘zip line’ a ‘flying fox’ because we all feel a bit foxier when we’re hurtling at speed hanging from a wire contraption with certain death or disability resulting if we let go right? Nothing sexier. Except perhaps this wine. Spicy, sultana cake aromatics envelop the nose, followed by a rich, warming, woolly mouthfeel.  It’s an exotic-yet-home-comfort example that’ll reward anyone praying for blackcurrant, pepper, eucalypt and cocoa in their sipping.  Lush and lovely when savoured with old-fashioned, peppery Shepherd’s Pie.” ~Yvonne Lorkin~


“The 2018 Brockenchack Zip Line Shiraz is rosewood red purple in colour. This middleweight Eden Valley Shiraz impresses from the get go with dense rose petal perfume, plum quince fruits and a hint of vanilla on the nose, followed by a chewy mouthful of warm lush purple fruits, held together with well balanced tannin and acid. The wine is built for rich and meaty dishes – osso bucco, bacon wrapped filet mignon with garlicky mushrooms, a chunky steak and onion pie, slow roasted lamb shoulder or spaghetti bolognaise or meatballs.” ~Jane Ferrari~


SILVER | 2021 San Francisco International Wine Competition

SILVER | 2021 London Wine Competition


91 POINTS | Wine Pilot | “From a single vineyard in the Eden Valley, this is an opaque black/purple in colour. The nose, coiled and intense, gives up plums, black cherries, chocolate, coffee beans and mocha. The palate adds leather and cloves and, towards the finish, some sour cherries. Good acidity, focus and length, this wine has a good decade or more ahead of it and while pleasing now, is going to get considerably better. Richly flavoured, this is a fine Barossa Shiraz.” ~Ken Gargett~


91 POINTS | Australia’s National Liquor News Shiraz Tasting | September 2021 edition | silver equivalent | “Medium bodied with classic Syrah style flavours of dark fruit and white pepper. Good use of oak gives vanilla licks and comlexing spice. Well crafted.” ~Michael Mcintosh~

2021 vintage : Winter rainfall took some of the sting out the dry summer conditions. Mild temps for much of the growing season provided ideal conditions for growth and berry development. Uninterrupted flowering allowed good fruit set. Night temps were cooler than normal in Spring and Summer; these cooler nights critical to, and the hallmark for, the quality of grapes and wines from our Eden Valley vineyard, allowing our vines time to rest, and allowing aromatic flavours, finesse and natural acidity to be maintained. Mild daytime conditions provided optimal ripening, allowing great fruit flavours to develop. Quality is exceptional from our 2021 Eden Valley vintage. Whites are fine with amazing natural acid and intense flavours. Reds are flavourful and deeply coloured. A vintage for now, and for the long term.

2018 vintage: Our Eden Valley growing season started off well, with winter rainfall 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 was down on average and Jan and Feby were warm and dry, with very warm temps 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 were referred to as ‘the icing on the cake’, delivering average temps, without extremes. Overall a strong, healthy crop for us. We are delighted with the high-quality grapes and great yields 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 our region this year include Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet. We are very excited for the release of our ’18 reds in a few years’ time.
