The Broker

‘The Broker’ is named after 4th generation Iain Seabrook who followed in his father’s footsteps and began his career in wine running errands at the famous WJ Seabrook & Son Wine Merchants in Melbourne, where he eventually became Production Manager. Following the closure of WJ Seabrook & Son, Iain began his own wine brokerage firm in the Barossa that was the first of its kind in the Australian wine industry, enabling wineries to trade in bulk wine to achieve the best blends possible.

Tasting Notes

The Cabernet Shiraz is rich in bright red berry fruits with hints of mint and clove spice. Savoury fruit, subtle oak and soft mouth-watering acidity together with long fine tannins complete this blend.

Vintage Conditions

Good winter and spring rainfall meant the vines were primed for summer. 2015 vintage started off very hot but was interrupted with some heavy rainfall mid-February. Mild summer temperatures followed providing for slow ripening which allowed for intense fruit flavours, balanced with good colour and acidity.

Vineyard Region
