Awards

We’ve worked hard over the last 12 years to refine our collection and are proud of the awards and recognition we’ve received for many of our wines over the years.

2009 William Frederick Shiraz | sold out

Rod Properjohn(WA wine writer & educator) |score 18½ / 20 |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.

5 stars | From one of our top tier wine members Bruce Watson |The William Frederick is better than Grange I say, and I have enjoyed many of both Grange and William Frederick. A most beautiful deep rich berry Shiraz with a lovely long finish to really enjoy those special occasions. You will not be disappointed.

Mike Bennie(Wine Business Mag)| 93 points |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.

Rod Properjohn(WA wine writer & educator)| score 17½ / 20 |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.

Rod Properjohn(WA wine writer & educator)| score 18½ / 20 |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. The price is an unbelievable $20.

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!

2017 Mackenzie William 1896 Riesling

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.
