Brookfields 2016 Ohiti Sauvignon, Cabernet, and Valley Cabernet Merlot

05-Dec-2017

Peter Robertson, his wife Sharon and their family run Brookfields Vineyard in the Meeanee district of Hawke’s Bay. One of the original modern boutique wine producers in the region, Brookfields makes 8,000 to 10,000 cases of wine annually from 200 tonnes of grapes from their four regional vineyard sources of the ‘Home’ block at Meeanee, the Ohiti vineyard, and from vineyards in the Tuki Tuki and their ‘Hillside’ vineyard in Bridge Pa. The wines are differentiated into the flagship ‘Reserve’ wines which are outstanding examples of Hawke’s Bay styles, and have a dedicated following, and the more widely seen, very well-made ‘Estate’ bottlings which cover a broad range. The wines are hand-crafted and show the Robertson’s experience. Here I review the 2016 Ohiti Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the ‘Valley’ Cabernet/Merlot, the latter wine assigned for export. www.brookfieldsvineyards.co.nz
