Expert Reviews

"Light ruby in colour with a red rim. A savoury nose with a hint of cherry, leather, dusty oak, tomato chutney and spice. Mouthfllling palate with tingly acid and flavours of cherry and pepper, following through to a long fruity finish.. . " Australian & New Zealand Wine Industry Jourl (Australia), 29 Oct 08

". . .This is a medium-bodied wine of good quality; its easy to recommend. Indeed it is one of the better McLaren Vale sangioveses I have seen, and it should drink even better in a couple of years time. Drink: 2009-2012" www.winefront.com.au, Campbell Mattinson (Australia), July 08

"…this wine has a sour cherry flavour that warms your mouth as a reminder of how good the last sip was." Shop Till You Drop, Guy Valiant - Sommelier, Mille Vini (Australia), January 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A young wine, bright red in colour, Sangiovese doesn’t have dense colour, purple tints.

Aroma

The aromas are of red cherry, briar fruit and sweet oak in the background.

Palate

The palate is very full with red cherry flavours and vanillin oak in the background. Part of the feature of Sangiovese is the dry savoury tannin structure. While the Italian styles can be very firm, the Australian wines, due to our climate and ripeness, are dry but balanced.

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.
