Expert Reviews

Deep red. Spicy, brisk red berry and cherry aromas gain depth and power with air, taking a turn toward blackberry and cherry preserves. Silky tannins add grip to the youthful, slightly primary cherry and blackberry flavours and dusty minerals give the wine a slight tangy edge. Finishes clean, with lingering sweetness.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Mid density colour with purple edges.

Aroma

Aromas of red cherry, spice and earthy edges.

Palate

Mid weight palate with some Cabernet Sauvignon cedar up front that leads to soft Merlot richness. The oak regime is mainly older American and French so limited impact although some vanillin on both nose and palate with a long sweet finish.

Cellaring Potential

A drink now style that will further soften with medium term bottle maturation. Excellent fruit flavours and balance being the features that will be maintained under the screw cap packaging.

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.
