The Winemakers

Wine by Brad is a fresh and funky wine producer from the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. In 2003 a couple of influential wine dudes and shadowy ruffians decided there was some fun to be had by putting together some pretty neat parcels of fruit and wine from the region, creating their own label, releasing it with minimal fuss, and then remaining anonymous until the dust settles. Brad is our public face. He’s the guy who makes all the decisions. He embodies the grower, maker and marketer, and he enjoys a drop too. There’s a little bit of Brad inhabiting all of us to some degree. Some say he is a mythical figure but we dispute this vehemently! He is the guy we have chosen to represent every aspect of our wine. This wine is Brad.

As best as possible these wines are made to convey Margaret River regionality: a true expression of the varieties and the styles that say Margaret River. But hey, above all we think these wines provide excellent drinkability for your money in an increasingly crowded world of wine.

The Wine

Classic grassy and citrus characters dominate the nose, hints of passionfruit and guava, and a nice piquey spiciness to crisp it up. This has the usual fresh tropical pineapple and passionfruit elements wrapped neatly in scrummy citrus flavours, providing the purrrfect summer cleanser. The ultimate Margaret River white from the ultimate Margaret River vintage. Go on – treat yourself – grab a bottle and pour yourself a big glass. The fruit comes from mostly southern Margaret River vineyards and shows the cool and classy characters this blend is renowned for. Get into it! Perfect with salads and seafood or simply on its own.
