Overview

A slightly deeper colour than the previous vintages due to an excellent McLaren Vale harvest. Lifted brown spice aromas and background char from the oak maturation. The palate has an abundance of black fruit pastille and forest notes. A touch riper as well but certainly not over the top.

Expert Reviews

From McLaren Vale, Hunter Valley and Wrattonbully; matured for 18 months in French and American barriques. A neatly put together shiraz reflecting the excellent vintage everywhere except the rain-sodden Hunter Valley. It's curious how this still has the Brokenwood style stamp emblazoned on its forehead, and it may confound someone coming across a bottle in 30 years time. Rating 93 - Drink by 2027, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Tasted on 28 Feb 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A slightly deeper colour than the previous vintages due to an excellent McLaren Vale harvest.

Aroma

Lifted brown spice aromas and background char from the oak maturation.

Palate

The palate has an abundance of black fruit pastille and forest notes. A touch riper as well but certainly not over the top. Ripe dusty tannins that will see this wine in good stead over the next 10 years or so.

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.
