Owned by Damon Nagel, Brackenwood began his career as a sommelier, working in several top restaurants in London before returning to Australia and purchasing the Brackenwood vineyard. Located in Hope Forest in the Adelaide Hills, Brackenwood prides itself on using biodynamic winemaking practices, which Damon and winemaker Laz Horvath believe allows the wines to express the pure characteristics and quality of the fruit.
High quality with lovely layers of flavours, this wine is nothing less than classy. Fabulous fruit and elegant savoury core, this wine is good to enjoy now or cellar for years to come. Aromas of blueberry and cherry fruit with hints of spice on the nose. The palate opens up to display an array of red fruits, pepper and spice interwoven to create a savoury core.
Adelaide Hills red at its finest. Aromas of blueberry and cherry fruit with hints of spice on the nose. The palate opens up to display an array of red fruits, pepper and spice interwoven to create a savoury core. Medium-bodied with ripe tannins and leads to a bright, long finish. An elegant but intense wine that will reveal more subtleties as it ages.
Brackenwood is owned by Damon Nagel, who started life as a sommelier in Adelaide before moving to London in his mid-twenties, where he worked in several of London’s top restaurants. After a number of successful years he moved back to Australia, where he purchased a stunning property in the Adelaide Hills. Here he set about establishing the Brackenwood name.
JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
A quick smell and taste tells you this is a pretty smart wine, rich in dark cherries, blackberry, spice and crushed pepper. Very good drink now or in 10 years.'
