Overview

This wine is a blend of 84% Sauvignon Blanc and 16% Semillon, probably one of the highest proportions of SB for quite a while. In terms of the vintage, a complete turnaround from 2011. The Hunter Valley had all the whites picked before the rain and the southern states enjoyed fine dry weather. As such the majority of the wine is from Cowra in NSW, King Valley in Vic and then the Hunter Valley.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright youthful colour with green edges.

Aroma

Sauvignon Blanc lift to the aromas - grassy and some tropical notes. No oak treatment for this wine, relying purely on the citrus purity of the fruit.

Palate

Terrific fruit concentration on the palate with a zesty acid back bone. While this is the perfect Summer wine it really is a wine for

anytime. Enjoy.

Food Matching

A dozen freshly shucked oysters and a whole baked barramundi for lunch or a spicy Asian laksa for dinner.

Peak Drinking

Definitely a wine to chill and enjoy in the short term.

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.
