Winemaker Iain Riggs made the comment during vintage 2014 that he thought in 32 years there were no more surprises left. Except of course starting picking on the 8th January. Once upon a time before the private irrigation scheme went through the valley, some Shiraz was picked in late January but Semillon was always early February. Not so any more. The winter and the spring of 2013 were very dry, in fact 207mm in the last 5 months of the year. Lower crop and low foliage equals early picking except vintage 2014 was not too dissimilar to 2000 where at 10 to 11 baumé there was still quite a bit of ‘green’ character. Lots of vineyard walks and discussion saw the decision to pick a bit riper meant slightly higher alcohols. But everything is still under 12% just no low 10s. Excellent colours with plenty of luminous greens and bright acidity a feature. In terms of tasting notes, not much to separate 2013 and 2014, so we didn’t.

Winery Tasting Notes

The warmer weather has resulted in great fruit intensity.


The colours in 2014 are outstanding, lots of luminous green tints.


Lifted aromas of citrus/lemongrass notes.


Sweet fruit flavours with great lime juice acidity.


This is an outstanding young Hunter Valley Semillon and great drinking now or this will age gracefully if a more mature style is desired.

Food Matching

Asian food, any seafood especially freshly shucked oysters.

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.
