Overview

As expected at 14.0% alcohol a full-bodied palate but the richness of the fruit more than compensates. Dark fruit and brandied pudding flavours. The balance is aided by ripe tannins and a lingering finish. This will mature further, although enjoyable as a rich young Pinot Noir.

Expert Reviews

Bright red-crimson; distinguished wine made from clones 114, 115 and MV6; red and black cherry fruit is held in a fine web of superfine tannins; very good line, balance and length.Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

A robust looking Pinot Noir – not a pale, light dry red one! Great colour and youthful purple tints evident.

Great complexity to the aromas. Lifted dark cherry, dark chocolate over sweet earthy characters. Some vanillin oak in the background.

Palate

As expected at 14.0% alcohol a full-bodied palate but the richness of the fruit more than compensates. Dark fruit and brandied pudding flavours. The balance is aided by ripe tannins and a lingering finish.

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.
