Expert Reviews

Come on, own up - we've all enjoyed a few of these over the years. I tasted the '08 a few weeks back and had forgotten how good it was. This is from a more challenging year and, if not quite to those heights, is still right on the money. Flavours of lime, citrus and grass and a lively clean finish in the mouth. One to share with mated in the backyard. Serve chilled and enjoy. Rick Allen, Parramatta Advertiser (19/May/2010)

"... is a deliciously attractive and tantalising wine with a hint of complexity achieved from minimal barrel fermentation." John Fordham, Sunday Telegraph, (13/JUN/2010)

Most of the Sauvignon Blanc in this tasty blend comes from King Valley in Victoria state, while the remainder was sourced from Umpires Decision Vineyard (don't you just love the name?) in the Cowra Region of New South Wales. About 5% of this wine was fermented in barrel. Nearly colourless, the nose is forward, aromatic and grassy, with light citrus peel back notes. Crisp and clean, with great texture and fruit, citrusy acidity and length. This is a pleasurable wine with oysters, clams and grilled fish and for those who speak Australian, you might try and "…pop a bottle into the esky on the way to the 'G."Gerald Boyd, Wine Review Online (01/AUG/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

59% Sauvignon Blanc and 41% Semillon


Bright pale yellow with green tints.


Aromas of citrus and Hunter Semillon lemongrass. Being from a hot year not a lot of herbaceous SB, more in the lime/hay spectrum.


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

Food Matching

A dozen freshly shucked oysters and a whole baked barramundi for lunch or a spicy Asian laksa for dinner. Or perhaps pop a bottle into the esky on the way to the “G”.

Winemaking Notes

Fruit outside the Hunter Valley is processed to the primary juice stage before transport to the winery in the Hunter Valley for fermentation and blending. This ensures the delicate grape and fruit aromas are preserved. A small percentage (approximately 5%) of this wine was fermented in barrel.

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.
