Expert Reviews

Winewise, Len Sorbello (Australia), 01 Dec 09

Recommended

"Estery apricot aromas with hints of ginger; the palate is elegant with an appealing texture, mineral characters and good length. The fresh acidity adds to the drinking enjoyment."

Sunday Tasmanian, Graeme Phillips (Australia), 06 Dec 09

Vintage: 2008

"A fuller, richer ...style... with subtle oak playing a mellowing, softening role and time on lees adding oatmealy, yeasty complexity and depth to the honeyed apricot and citrus fruit flavours, the mouthfeel richly smooth and balanced and with a lovely full, long, soft finish. "

Winery Tasting Notes

The most arresting feature of Viognier is its aromas. Lifted apricot and cherry blossom characters. The oak impact is very slight and adds texture to the palate. The palate features apricot and is full-bodied from glycerol and alcohol. This adds length and the flavours carry to the end and linger. A perfectly framed wine with everything in balance.

While some Northern hemisphere examples do age well, this is best consumed over the short term.

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.
