Expert Reviews

Excellent "Super citrusy and crisp. It’s the perfect drink to sip with pals on a lazy Sunday arvo, Brokenwood is reliably good. " Cleo, Sarah Oakes (Australia), June 2009

4 Stars "… this chirpy white … has lime green-tinged daffodil hues and there are aromas of honeyed baked apple on the nose. Crisp citrus flavour features on the front of the palate and herb-edged gooseberry and green pea characters combine on the middle palate. Flinty acid shows at the finish." Newcastle Herald, John Lewis (Australia), 19 Mar 09

"Brokenwoods Cricket Pitch white is always a joy to drink. A blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon from Cowra and the King Valley thats partially barrel fermented, it has citrus aromas, freshness and lively acid. An absolute ripper!" www.winsordobbin.com.au, Winsor Dobbin (Australia), March 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright pale yellow with green tints.

Aroma

Aromas of citrus with a herbaceous green pea edge from the higher proportion of Sauvignon Blanc. The lifted, grassy King Valley component is evident.

Palate

Some barrel ferment character adding subtle complexity and further dimension to the palate. A fine natural acid structure provides length and liveliness to the finish.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Ripe, soft round flavours. Fresh, clean acid line providing the backbone. Good everyday drinking.

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.
