Expert Reviews

Bright colour; the bouquet is a vibrant combination of ripe blackberry, mocha, fruitcake and fine toasty oak; fleshy and fresh on the palate, with the 14.5% alcohol barely noticeable, as the inherent balance and complexity of the wine maintains freshness and precision from start to finish.

Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep, purple red and very dense, almost ‘brooding’.

Aroma

Savoury briar notes along with the expected lush, McLaren Vale blackberry jube fruit. Almost Barolo like – ‘tar and roses’. Integrated vanillin oak edge.

Palate

Seamless palate combining ripe tannins, dark berry/chocolate Shiraz fruit and perfect oak. Some “Turkish Delight” sweet fruit at the start and long from the alcohol/glycerol. An almost spicy after palate. A classic McLaren Vale Shiraz.

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.
