Top 10 + 4.5 stars| NZ Dish Magazine, Best Aussie Shiraz Available in NZ Tasting, March 2022 | "Nine years on from harvest and this shiraz is maturing into something rather special. “With its smoky, vanilla oak and soft, suede-like textures cloaking its toffee, coffee and dark, charred fruit notes, it’s still carrying fresh acidity and buckets of character. Such an exciting wine,” ~Yvonne Lorkin~

2009 William Frederick Shiraz| first release | sold out

18.5 / 20| Rod Properjohn, WA wine writer & educator | "The super-premium wine of the stable is a turbo-charged dark shiraz with rich concentrated fruit, oak and tannins. Although powerful, it comes together with a silky texture and great balance over its extended palate length. An aged rib-eye beef steak would be in order with this."


2020 D.E.N Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

91 Points| 2023 VinoUS |"The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon D.E.N. Reserve is gently aromatic, displaying restrained dried herbs and cedar notes against cassis. Quality oak lingers in the background. Compact but firm, with a bone-dry muscular swagger, it is pretty tightly wound, although structurally sound with a strong line of dried herb flavours and ample coffee grounds and oak. It's a keeper and needs little time to get into the groove."

2019 D.E.N Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Gold Medal (95)| 2022 Melbourne International Wine Competition

Silver Medal| 2023 London Wine Competition |“Beautiful fruit and great structure. Dense garnet. Broad accomplished evolving blackcurrant core by integrating oak. Full-bodied, moderate vibrant acidity, fine high dense tannins, driven mid-palate, long impressive.”

Gold Medal|2023 London Wine Competition |“Clear, bright, dark ruby colour. Intense and youthful, notes of jammy black berries, black cherry, violet, minty, rosemary, meaty, chocolate, sweet spices, vanilla, cinnamon. Elevated complexity & long finish.”

Silver Medal| 2023 International Wine Competition (IWC)

2018 Jack Harrison Shiraz

Gold Medal|2023 London Wine Competition |“Dry to off dry, full-bodied, on nose it's very elegant with the correct amount of spices, the dark fruit and vanilla are beautifully integrated, on the palate is warm and silky. Fantastic wine which needs decanting.”

95 Points| Sam Kim, Wine Orbit |"Richly fruited and seductively fragrant, the bouquet shows blackberry, cake spice, cedar and dark chocolate characters. It's equally satisfying in the mouth, delivering outstanding weight and richly textured mouthfeel, superbly complemented by refreshing acidity and layers of fine tannins. Sumptuous yet refined and sophisticated. At its best: now to 2033."June 2023.

95 Points| Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "Dark maroon in colour, there is real depth of flavour here. Dark berries, animal skins, warm earth, hints of chocolate, black fruits and a smoky roast meat note. Black olives and cloves follow. Firm tannins are present, good balance and excellent length. This is cracking stuff and has at least a decade ahead of it. That said, no reason you can't enjoy it now." March 2022

95 Points| Winepilot - Angus Hughson | "I like the Brockenchack wines – honest and well made with plenty of personality and flavour, but I really loved this wine. It’s their best yet from where I sit! Bright deep crimson, it is a beautifully brooding and tightly knit Eden Valley Shiraz with a powerful aromatic core of blackberry, new leather and black olive fruits with peppery sage elements and well matched oak. Dry, fleshy and concentrated on the palate, there is an explosion of punchy fruit pastilles and liquorice while retaining its energy and freshness with moderate, fine tannins well integrated to provide a long, yet subtle finish. Superb Eden Valley Shiraz and great value."March 2022

Silver Medal| 2022 International Wine Competition (IWC) | "Lovely notes of plums and herbaceous notes. Sage with silky tannins and good structure compliments the wine."

Silver Medal|2022 London Wine Competition |"Full-bodied, dense character with integrated tannins and aromas of ripe blackberries, vanilla, chocolate and overripe prunes. Rich, warming palate with notes of blackberries, raisins, oak and vanilla with a juicy finish."

Silver Medal|2021 San Francisco International Wine Competition

92 Points| James Suckling | "Aromas of baked cherry, plum, melted milk chocolate and coriander. Full-bodied with soft tannins. Rich and smooth on the palate. Steady intensity, with opulent black fruit washing over the palate." November 2022

92 Points| VinoUS 2023 | "This 2018 Jack Harrison from Eden Valley delivers a classically reserved Shiraz. Elegant, subtle aromas of black pepper, dried sage and roasted meats sit over a just-ripe blackberry bed, well integrated with slightly sweet oak. Chalky tannins plus a lingering finish provide a solid conclusion and will support improvement over the medium term."

90 Points| The Real Review - Bob Campbell |"Intense wine with cassis, blackcurrant, dark cherry, chocolate/mocha flavours and port-like concentration. An heroic red that is accessible now but should develop well with bottle age. Drink to 2027." ~Feb 2023~

Bronze Medal| 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards |"A dark-fruited palate with slightly vegetal notes. The palate is plush, soft and plummy, with ripe and round tannins. Good intensity and length."

Gold Medal|2021 London Wine Competition

Top 10 Shiraz|2021 London Wine Competition | Handpicked and chosen by some of Europe's most renowned sommeliers and wine experts, they described this wine as "Full of luscious black and blueberry fruits, morello cherry, chocolate, truffles, and undertones of cardamom spice. A deep and brooding expression of Eden Valley fruit, with a rich crimson color." With this tasting note |"Excellent, superb nose of fruit and eucalyptus, as well as soft tapande. Silky, soft and delicate in texture. Well resolved tannins and balancing freshness keep it very ripe and full-bodied in shape, very long finish."

92 Points| The Vintage Journal Barossa Guide 2023 |"Deep crimson. Developed blackberry, mocha, hint sesame, vanilla aromas with sage notes. Fresh black cherry, chinotto, nougat, vanilla, aniseed flavours, fine grainy textures and fresh integrated acidity. Finishes muscular firm but fruit follows through."

93 Points| Mike Bennie, Wine Business Magazine | "From a single Eden Valley Vineyard. Spends 18 months in oak then two years in bottle before release. Power and mellowness hand in hand. Black current and inky plum fruit character with smooth nougat tinged oak lending a hand. Drips from the palate with richness, finishes with sinewy tannins."

17.5 / 20 |Rod Properjohn, WA wine writer & educator | "There’s a youthful mauve appearance in this premium red and it is fathoms deep with pepper and anise. Medium weighted and advertising the strength of a great Barossa vintage, the wine stretches long in the mouth with blueberry, plum and supporting oak to a dry acid finish. Try with a flash-fried loin of kangaroo."

2020 Megan Jane Grenache

Double Gold (96)| 2022 Melbourne International Wine Competition

94 Points| Sam Kim, Wine Orbit |"This is splendidly expressed on the nose, showing dark plum, roasted nut, warm spice and rich floral aromas. The palate delivers excellent weight and plump mouthfeel, wonderfully supported by velvety texture and fine polished tannins. Flavoursome and delectable with a sustained plush finish. At its best: now to 2032."June 2023.

90 Points| Real Review NZ - Bob Campbell 2023 |"Delicately scented grenache with gentle berry fruit aromas that continue on to the palate where they are joined by nuances of savoury and spice. Charming wine with a silken texture and gently drying finish."

2019 Megan Jane Grenache| sold out

94 Points| Sam Kim, Wine Orbit |"It's splendidly ripe and inviting on the nose showing dark plum, cured meat, dried herb and a hint of leather notes, followed by a supple palate displaying succulent fruit flavours with smooth rounded mouthfeel. Silky and flavoursome with an attractive spicy finish. At its best: now to 2027."April 2022

Gold Medal|2021 Melbourne International Wine Competition

93 Points| Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "A Grenache which has attracted positive attention in various wine shows, this is named after a member of their team. It is the third release of Grenache for the winery, all from a single vineyard in the Eden Valley, and crafted by winemaker Joanne Irvine (daughter of winemaking royalty, James Irvine). The yields with this vintage were lower than average, resulting in wines of serious concentration. Crimson/purple in colour, this was my favourite of the releases, a really well made, delicious Grenache. Nose of raspberries, bergamot, dry herbs, red cherries and florals. Balanced, with excellent focus and serious length through to very fine tannins, all backed by underlying acidity. A delicious, juicy example of Grenache that drinks beautifully now and should age well for another 6-8 years. Their suggestion is that if the day warrants it, 30 minutes in the fridge will assist, is not out of place. Drink to 2029."

2020 Hare Hunter Pinot Noir

Gold Medal| 2023 Melbourne International Wine Competition

Silver Medal| 2023 London Wine Competition |“Juicy, powerful style. Soft supple fruits, rich on palate lots of the fruit, medium plus finish, concentration, herbs. It holds it all together well. Balanced on a knife-edge. Good wine.”

2019 Hare Hunter Pinot Noir

Gold Medal|2022 London Wine Competition |"Fragrant, delicate character with crisp acidity, soft tannins and aromas of strawberries, cinnamon, flowers and blackberries. Intense palate with notes of jammy red berries, vanilla and cloves and a refined finish."

96 Points | Drinks Trade Magazine, August 2022 |"A little basket of forest berries. It stays savoury, which is its drawcard. Oak is there, but mucking in rather than standing out, complex and satisfying." ~Charlie Simpson~

93 Points| Sam Kim, Wine Orbit |"It's richly spicy and savoury on the nose showing dark berry, dried herb, cured meat, dried mushroom and warm spice aromas, leading to a gorgeously rounded palate offering excellent weight and silky flow. Generously textured and soothing with a persistent expansive finish. At its best: now to 2029."June 2023.

92 Points| Real Review NZ - Bob Campbell 2023 |"An appealing smooth-textured pinot noir with savoury and spice flavours including sweet cherry, cedar, pomegranate, anise and French oak. Deliciously drinkable now but no rush. Charming wine."

92 Points| National Liquor News, Pinot Noir Tasting, June 2022 |"Lovely confectionary nose with strawberry and rhubarb. Nutmeg and a delightful palate with soft edges." Ed Peake

Bronze Medal| 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards |"Whole bunch characters-stemmy, earthy, cranberry and herb flavours. Lovely freshness and good value."

Finalist| New To Market Treat Yourself Reds | 2023 Peoples Choice Wine Awards UK

2018 Hare Hunter Pinot Noir

93 Points| Sam Kim, Wine Orbit NZ |"Seductively styled and complex, showing dark berry, thyme, toasted almond and earthy mushroom aromas on the nose. The elegantly weighted palate delivers silky flow and rounded mouthfeel, beautifully complemented by savoury nuances, leading to a lengthy structured finish. At its best: now to 2028."April 2022

93 Points| David Walker Bell, WineFolio NZ |"A bright medium-depth ruby in the glass. Lovely nose, filled with savoury notes of mushroom, beetroot and mocha, alongside some succulent blackberry, damson, blood orange and red cherry. A youthful, balsamic, juiciness to the palate - a little lighter in tone than the nose suggests. The fruit has a bounce and pop of ripeness, which is a foil to the savoury, peaty elements and the supple, dry, tannins. A moderate acidity keeps things moving, and the rounded, silken texture enriches the back of the palate. Powerful, perfumed and well-balanced - a well made, elegant yet vibrant expression."Nov 2022

Silver Medal|2021 Melbourne International Wine Competition

91 Points|National Liquor News Pinot Noir Tasting, April 2021 | silver medal equivalent |"Elegant and restrained. Earthy beetroot, sweet sour, five spice. Long finish." Michael Mcintosh

90 Points| Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "A soft red colour with sappy aromatics. Soft brambles, raspberries, bay leaves, red cherries, some earthy notes, coffee grinds and tobacco leaf. A Pinot with good focus, there is line and impressive length, fine tannins and juicy acidity. The acidity really works with that sappiness. Drink to 2026."

Silver Medal| 2022 International Wine Competition | "Ripe tropical fruit character with creamy texture and a generous dollop of oak."

94 Points|Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "Colour is gold and straw. A lovely aromatic nose with good oak integration. Stone fruit, nutmeg and ginger here. Some tropical touches. Those who don't mind a touch of oak, and there are plenty of fans of that style out there, will love this riper style. Richly flavoured and stone fruit notes really emerge on the palate with orange rind and quince. Quite delicious. Drink over the next two to three years. Really enjoyed this. Would make a terrific match for a richer seafood dish." March 2022

92 Points|Winepilot - Angus Hughson |"Bright pale straw in colour, this is a well composed cooler climate Chardonnay that is quite floral in character with layers of ripe nectarine and melon aromas wound up in a cloak of cashew barrel ferment and oak maturation – all well integrated. It’s a tangy little number too with upfront impact thanks to that juicy acidity; layers of tinned peach fruit and spicy oak coming together to deliver what is a top- notch version of Eden Valley Chardonnay." March 2022

91 Points|James Suckling |"This ripe and bold Chardonnay has stacks of pear, mandarin-orange and vanilla aromas. Full-bodied with plenty of fruit and toasty character, the crisp lemony acidity lifting the ample finish." November 2022

92 Points| Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "From a single vineyard planted in 2012 in the Eden Valley, this is named after the family’s eldest granddaughter, Bronte. It has done extremely well in wine shows around the world. Cracking value for a wine which will easily sail through a decade in the cellar. Dark purple in colour; the aromas are a blend of cassis, plums, blackberries, dark chocolate, cigar box, spices and black olives. There is some oak evident but the integration is good and progressing well. Good balance and excellent length, right through to the firm but satiny tannins. Like most of the wines in this release, a highlight is good fruit focus. Drinking this now is fine, but it will age and improve over the next six to ten years. Drink to 2031."

91 Points| James Suckling |"This offers attractively ripe blueberry, blackcurrant, spiced-chocolateand raspberry aromas with fresh oak spice. The palate is succulent and fresh, yet fully ripe. Medium body. Elegantly focused and flavorful finish. Drink or hold."July 2022

95 Points| Sam Kim, Wine Orbit |"This is exquisitely fine and delicately expressed on the nose, showing lime peel, lemon sorbet, white floral and wet limestone nuances, leading to a brilliantly focused palate offering outstanding concentration and fruit purity.

91 Points| VinoUS 2023 |"The 2022 Mackenzie William 1896 is a single vineyard Riesling, crafted with the fruit from a vineyard planted in 1896. It offers piercing grapefruit and lime juice aromas with a subtle mineral backing. It's bright, fresh and vibrant, bursting with youthful intensity. The finely balanced palate combines zesty acidity with an array of citrus and floral complexity. Tightly wound, with an appealing texture, it promises to drink well over the next decade."

Silver Medal|2021MelbourneInternational Wine Competition

92 Points| Winepilot - Jen Port | "Eden Valley is a celebrated region for riesling. The high, cool hills deliver a particularly individual style. It’s like a big bouquet of flowers arrived in the glass. Mackenzie William has it and then some; apple blossom, jasmine, citrus, lime and orchard aromatics lead the way. It captures the essence of Spring. There’s a wine tasting term that succinctly sums up one of the big attractions of Eden Valley riesling – line and length. It indicates a strong, structural line of acidity, not hard or aggressive but naturally endowed that provides the tension between fruit and acidity that drives the wine long. It’s here in this wine, and together with the aromatics, the fineness of citrus fruit – but it’s early days, still in building mode, Mackenzie William can look forward to a fruitful, long life in the bottle. Drink to 2030"

5 stars| The 3 Wines Men |After meeting the team @brockenchackwines recently I was blown away with how advanced their wines were. In particular the 2017 Mackenzie William 1869 Riesling. You’d be hard pressed to guess that this was a 2017 Riesling. It doesn’t have that acidic and citric sharpness that was expected, and that’s just one reason I love it. More lemon than lime, balanced nectarines and a nice little flinty finish. The most amazing thing about this cracking wine is that as well as it is right now, it’s only going to get better for the next 10+ years. Oh and if you think the name is a little different read the story on the website. It’s why I love family produced wines. All blood, sweat and cheers.

The Adelaide Advertiser| Review |July 2015 |There’s always a great deal of interest in how the new vintage Rieslings express their range of florals and citrus flavours. Here we are immediately in pretty perfumed talc territory, white blossoms as well as well-sculpted, tight apple and lemon-like flavours – with what’s increasingly looking like a vintage-specific softer and fleshier acidity. There’s also a refreshing lemon ice-block-like feel.

The Wine Wankers| Review |July 2015 |A quality Eden Valley Riesling by the boutique small batch producer Brockenchack. Dry but aromatic with lovely fruit intensity driving home at the end of each sip. Would be perfect with roast pork and apple sauce. Yum!

18½ / 20| Rod Properjohn, WA wine writer & educator | "From 118 year old vines; this is a brilliant light green/straw colour and has a lifted citrus-blossom perfume. There is a long penetrating pure-fruited palate of lime juice, steely minerality, dryness and razor-sharp acidity and it’s absolutely perfect with battered pan-fried fillets of whiting."

91 Points| Real Review NZ - Bob Campbell 2023 |"Deep, almost inky shiraz with ripe black-fleshed plum, chocolate/mocha, vanilla, raspberry and Christmas cake-like dried fruits and spices. A scented powerhouse with an appealingly silken texture.

91 Points| VinoUS 2023 | "This single vineyard 2020 Shiraz Zip Line from Eden Valley offers impressive quality for the price, thanks to its mix of dense fruit and underlying complexity. It stands up to deliver ample blackberry, chocolate and new leather aromas, with nice touches of earth and dried herbs, a hearty serve of oak only adding to the experience. Moderately intense, gently opulent mouth-filling flavours follow with layers of fruit pastille and plum compote topped by a nice touch of spice. Tannins are already well integrated and help to deliver generous finish."

Top 10 + 4.5 stars| NZ Dish Magazine, Best Aussie Shiraz Available in NZ Tasting, March 2022 | "With its sweet vanillin oak, dark berry intensity, tobacco and roast plum complexity, this shiraz impressed straight away. “Fresh, lovely palate weight and very, very well made,” noted Cameron. “With berry blossoms on the nose, a gently plump, plummy palate and tannins prickling under your front lip, it’s rather fabulous.” agreed Yvonne Lorkin.

91 Points| Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "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. Drink to 2034."March 2022

91 Points |National Liquor News | September 2021 Tasting | silver equivalent | "Medium bodied with classic Syrah style flavours of dark fruit and white pepper. Good use of oak gives vanilla licks and complexing spice. Well crafted." ~Michael Mcintosh~

90 Points| Wine & Spirit Magazine, US | "Initially tasting of bruised fruit, this settles into fresher blueberryflavours with air. Clean and tarry-sweet with tobacco scents that last, it a mellow, well-structured shiraz for grilled lamb."

NV Great Scott Sparkling Shiraz

Finalist| New To Market Easy Weekday Reds | 2023 Peoples Choice Wine Awards UK

92 Points| Sam Kim, Wine Orbit |"Fruit forward and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows black/blueberry, dark cocoa, warm spice and rich floral aromas, followed by a succulent palate offering subtle sweetness and velvety texture. Approachable and immediately appealing."April 2022

92 Points| Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "This delicious ‘spurgles’ (sparkling Shiraz) has been made as a tribute to Scott Pollock, a beloved member of the family and son-in-law to the owners, Trevor and Marilyn Harch. This was apparently a style much loved by Scott and one suspects that he would have been very happy with this wine. Made from Eden Valley fruit, sourced from a single vineyard, this is excellent value for the style. It opens with exploding pink foam before subsiding into a lovely crimson note. Hedonistic and plush, there are alluring notes of plums, ripe cherries, dark chocolate, cloves, leather, blackcurrants and red currants; ripe and full-flavoured. There is excellent length here, and balance. Normally, these have reasonable levels of sweetness but here, although there appears to be pleasing fruit sweetness, the fermentation is close to dry. It works. Has been stoppered with a crown seal – expect to see more of this. Drink to 2026."March 2022

Silver Medal|2021 Melbourne International Wine Competition

90 Points| Winepilot - Jen Port | "Cue approaching summer days and lazy afternoons with a glass of…well, you can connect the dots with quite a number of smart, well-priced wines out there. On Point pinot grigio definitely belongs in such company. The $20 price tag is more than attractive, so, too, the wine’s strong varietal presence in the glass. 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. Flavours are clean, persistent and there’s even a light, textural mouthfeel running across the palate. Grigio fulfils its role nicely. A tidy wine for summer days ahead.Drink to 2024"
