Brockenchack is very much the small family-run vineyard that we love! Basing themselves in the Barossa, three generations live and work on the vineyard to produce a range of wines that showcase what passion can create.
Brockenchack Son-in-Law, Darren, and our cheesemonger, Sam, have been working together for 5years as they show off how well these wines match the Cheese Therapy cheeses. Many say it's the Perfect Pair!
To give you a sense of how family oriented Brockenchack is, you just need to look at the name, made up of the names of the four grandkids; Bronte, MacKenzie, Charli and Jack.
These four wines have been chosen for their brilliant quality that will Pair Perfectly with our current cheese packs on offer.
The White Wine Pack consists of:
2020 Mackenzie William 1896 Riesling
A classic Eden Valley Riesling grown from old high country vines, this wine really gives a continuous stream of fresh squeezed lemon and brown lime with a dash of citrus blossom, followed by a lean and tidy minerally steel dry finish.

2010 Mackenzie William 1896 Riesling
This vintage was the first ever release of the Mackenzie William Riesling of which Brockenchack held back a small portion to re-release as an aged vintage. What a great move this was, as this wine now really what the change in characteristics for an aged Riesling brings.
When Riesling is young, in its first year, it delivers tastes of lime juice and searing acid. As it ages, the acid will soften and the wine mellows and becomes reminiscent of buttered toast and honey. The fruit notes change from limes to oranges and apricots and grows in intensity.
2017 Charli Jaye Chardonnay
An elegant and sophisticated Chardonnay with bright aromatics brought on by a cooler spring with good rains. Delivering aromas of kaffir lime, guava and spring blossom that develop into notes of stone fruit, melon and citrus.

2020 Tru-Su Rose
The perfect drink for summer! Paired with a cheeseboard - even better!
A refreshing wine with a zingy snap of acid that meets a dash of red berry fruit sweetness that then finishes tart and dry. This is what shiraz does when the juice barely kisses the skin!
