We’re very happy to share that our newly released Rosabrook Single Estate Vineyard Tempranillo 2014 has been awarded 92 points by Mike Bennie in the latest issue of WBM – Australia’s Wine Business Magazine.
“How cool to see a growing, albeit small, cohort of Tempranillo producers in Margaret River, here with a wine produced in a medium bodied fashion with neat and tidy savouriness and a light dusting of woody spice. Sarsaparilla and cherry cola chime in too. Lovely, soft, supply drinking experience.” 92 Points

We’re proud to share that our newly released Rosabrook Wines 2016 Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay received 94 points in Ray Jordan’s Wine Guide 2019.
“This impressive, elegant chardonnay is one of the best from this producer. Engaging aromas of butterscotch and citrusy grapefruit with an underlying nectarine complexity. The palate is light-bodied but intense, with a tight controlling structure that carries it to a very long finish. The minerally edginess adds that final piece to the equation. Nice wine.” Score: 94/100 Cellar: 7 years
We are happy to share that our newly released Rosabrook Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2016 and Rosabrook Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 have both been awarded accolades from Huon Hooke, Principal Wine Writer at The Real Review Australia.
Rosabrook Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
“Light to mid-yellow colour with a candlewax aroma, which is youthful and straightforward for its age. There are lemony flavours of good intensity and focus. A very nice wine.” Score: 90/100 Cellaring potential: 2018–2024
Rosabrook Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
“Deep red colour with a good tint of purple, the bouquet toasty-oaky and laced with coconut, the palate very big, tannic, full-bodied. The wine has abundant acidity and the tannins are firm and grippy, ensuring it will age well, although it would be very good now with cheese or meat. Lots of oak, acid and tannin! Oak has been pushed to the max.” Score: 90/100 Cellaring potential:2020–2035
