Expert Reviews

94 Points "Pinot Gris of this calibre is exceedingly rare, particularly at this price. It has delightful complexity of fresh pear, baked apple, honey and cloves and – crucially perfect poise, zesty structure, driving minerality and great persistence." Wine Business Monthly, Tyson Stelzer (Australia), May 2009

"…it’s attractive ... It drinks well. It’s flush with lively, almost sweet, pear and nectarine-like flavours and there’s even the odd, attractive note of old honeycomb. It’s not especially long but neither is it short. This is good. " www.winefront.com.au, Campbell Mattinson (Australia), 20 Feb 09

"…a refreshing citrus/honeysuckle flavoured drop from Victoria’s Beechworth region." Sunday Telegraph, John Fordham (Australia), 08 Mar 09

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The pale yellow/green hue of this wine belies its varietal nature.

Aroma

Lifted floral and ester characters dominate the aroma with a background hint of musk.

Palate

The palate is well balance at 13.5% alcohol and shows good concentration of citrus and honeysuckle flavours. The subtle phenolics add length and weight providing persistence and depth to the palate. Fine acid ensures a clean finish.

Cellaring Potential

While some Northern hemisphere examples age well, this wine 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.
