When Tim first acquired the land of Brookdale, it was overgrown and underused. As Tim and the team began to clear the land, replant indigenous trees and shrubs, and plant new vines, they happened across something remarkable … A single block of Chenin Blanc had been quietly thriving on one of the slopes at Brookdale Estate and held immense potential.The block was to be yield the first vintage of Brookdale Chenin Blanc from the then 35-year-old vines. With exquisite detail, nuanced balance and an impactful flavour profile, the Brookdale Chenin Blanc rivals the classic white wines of Burgundy.

Chalky and flinty aromas while limey, with white citrus and white pear, underpinned by subtle oak spice. On the palate, the sensational white fruit continues. The mineral structure presents balanced by fresh acidity and a mouth-coating citrus purity.
