Expert Reviews

Recommended "The rich peachy aromas and flavours have a lot of appeal, and the oak imparts a touch of dryness to the finish." Winewise (Australia), December 2008

Winery Tasting Notes


Good colour with yellow/green tints dominating.


A wine with many outstanding features, but the aromas are most interesting. Wild ferment characters and grilled nuts. Tropical fruit, mango and rockmelon aromas give a strong fruit background.


Rich flavours and textured palate. Up front bran-meal and tropical fruit.

Cellaring Potential

Will improve but mainly over the medium term.

The wine was fermented in 80% new French oak and 20% one year old, from a variety of cooperages. Good glycerol weight gives richness. Being a cool region the high natural acid gives a frame for the generously flavoured palate. An impressive Single Vineyard Chardonnay made with a definitive hands-off approach to winemaking.

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.
