An Evening with the award winning Brookfields Vineyard
When: Wednesday 14 August, 2013
The Brookfields winemaking philosophy is to make fruit-driven wines that are enjoyable in their youth, go well with food, and for those that can resist temptation, wines that respond well to cellaring.
The wines presented were all from the Brookfields 2012 vintage. The 2012 harvest/vintage was special to the winery as it was officially the 75th for Brookfields Vineyards. When they bottled the first wines from the 2012 vintage the ‘first’ 75th vintage wine/varietal was the 2012 ‘Ohiti Estate’ Sauvignon Blanc. This will be your quaffer on the evening. It is a milestone for New Zealand, plus for the world of wine, having a winery celebrating 75 years.
