Expert Reviews

4.5 Stars / 93 Points Very much in the traditiol Hunter style: sweet leather and brown dusty/earthy aromas, dried plums and redcurrant fruit, sweet berries and leather; quite ripe. The palate is supple and even, has terrific density, will live for a long time; lovely fine, dense drying tannin and an ashen finish. Nick Stock Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 Jan-09

94 Points Vivid crimson; excellent balance and mouthfeel to perfectly ripened fruit; from young vines in Graveyard Block and declassified portions of Graveyard Old Vines. James Halliday Wine Companion 2009 Jan-09

Winery Tasting Notes


A lovely deep red with purple hues on the rim.


Being mostly from McLaren Vale there is plenty of dark berry aroma with the sweet oak marrying well. Some spice and Christmas pudding characters as well.


The palate is rich and long. Liqueur cherry flavours, some charry oak in the background and some vanillin from the American oak. The tannins are quite soft and ripe, nothing ‘firm’ about this wine at all. Great complexity and utilizing the best of the three great shiraz regions.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

At nearly 40 years young, Brokenwood Wines, in the heart of the Hunter Valley, can lay claim to not only an iconic vineyard with the Graveyard Vineyard but to the preservation of a wine fraternity that proudly has as its mission statement, 'to make great wine and have fun'.

The original land that was to become the Cricket Pitch Vineyard was purchased in 1970 and planted immediately to Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Graveyard Vineyard, planted to Shiraz in 1968, was bought in 1978 and by the mid 1980s was producing a premium Single Vineyard wine. The first Langton's Classification of Premium Australian Wine was launched in 1993 and the Graveyard Shiraz was then, and remains, the highest-placed Hunter Valley Shiraz.

The Hunter Valley is renowned for its dry table wines of Semillon and Shiraz. Brokenwood's production of these is further supported by premium grapes from as far afield as Orange, Beechworth and McLaren Vale.

Today, Brokenwood boasts an impressive array of premium quality wines, sourced from 'all the right regions, for all the right reasons', from the Graveyard Shiraz to the Cricket Pitch Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Cricket Pitch Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot.

“Our philosophy is to produce wine that focuses on the unique regional characteristics of the Hunter Valley and premium wine regions throughout Australia.” Iain Riggs, Chief Winemaker & Managing Director, Brokenwood Wines.
