Brookfields 2018 ‘Fiesta’ Rosé, and 2017 ‘Back Block’ Syrah and ‘Sun Dried’ Malbec


Brookfields Vineyards established by Peter and Sharon Robertson in 1977 was one of the modern pioneer boutique wine producers in Hawke’s Bay. Based in Meeanee, the operation has grown to encompass four estate vineyards, the others situated in Ohiti, Tuki Tiki and Bridge Pa. Much of the 8,000 to 10,000 case annual production is centred around the varieties and styles that are classical for the Hawke’s Bay region. But Peter and Sharon are continually developing their portfolio to have unique and/or eclectic bottlings that create interest for their loyal followers. Here, I review the inaugural 2018 ‘Fiesta’ Rosé, and the 2017 ‘Back Block’ Syrah and ‘Sun Dried’ Malbec.
