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."

PREMIUM WINES


2018 Jack Harrison Shiraz

Silver Medal| 2022 International Wine Competition

Lovely notes of plums and herbaceous notes. Sage with silky tannins and good structure compliment the wine.

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

Top 10 Shirazes|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."

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."


2019 Megan Jane Grenache| sold out

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."

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."

2019 Charli Jaye Chardonnay

Gold Medal| 2022 International Wine Competition

Ripe tropical fruit character with creamy texture and a a generous dollop of oak.

Gold Medal|2022 London WineCompetition

94 Points|Winepilot - Ken Gargett | "Colour is gold and straw. A lovely aromatic nose with good oak integration. Stonefruit, 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 stonefruit 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-knotch version of Eden Valley Chardonnay." March 2022

Silver Medal|2021 London Wine Competition

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.” ageed 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."

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 comlexing spice. Well crafted." ~Michael Mcintosh~

92 Points| Winestate Magazine - Eden Valley Regional Tasting

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."

NV Great Scott Sparkling Shiraz

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."

91 points |National Liquor News Sparkling Tasting | January 2022 edition | silver equivalent | "Good balance. Great fruits and structure. Dark and brooding. If you like sparkling reds, you'll love this." ~Geoff Bollom~

2021 Mackenzie William 1896 Riesling| sold out

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!

2021 On Point Pinot Grigio

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"
