Overview

Lifted aromas of dark cherry fruit and earthy/foresty characters from the whole berries included in the fermentation. Some vanillin oak in the background. All these characters follow through to the palate and at a moderate 13.5% alcohol it has great balance.

Expert Reviews

Medium-deep ruby-purple colored, the 2009 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir gives evolving aromas of raspberry preserves, dried cherries and warm cranberries over hints of tobacco and underbrush. Medium bodied with a low to medium level of chewy tannins, it has crisp acidity and a good amount of warm berry fruit, finishing long. Drinking now, it should keep through 2014.

Rating 87 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, eRobert Parker.com (JUN/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A robust looking Pinot Noir – not a pale light dry red one! Great colour and youthful purple tints evident.

Aroma

Lifted aromas of dark cherry fruit and earthy/foresty characters from the whole berries included in the fermentation. Some vanillin oak in the background. All these characters follow through to the palate and at a moderate 13.5% alcohol it has great balance.

Palate

The palate is aided by ripe tannins giving a lingering finish. This wine will mature further although enjoyable as a rich young Pinot Noir.

Food Matching

Duck, quail and steak tartare.

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.
