A typical blend of these two famous Bordeaux varieties, being 78% Cabernet and 22% Merlot.

The name 'Three Sovereigns' comes from an old Brokenwood story:

'If your wine is as scarce as gold you must be paid in gold’. These were the words of Melbourne restaurateur Herman Schneider that accompanied three gold half-sovereigns, payment for five cases of 1975 Brokenwood Cabernet Sauvignon. The proprietor of Two Faces had previously ordered wine from the 1973 and 1974 vintages but, such was the demand, none could be supplied. Not so the 1975, with the wine duly delivered later that year.

Deep colour and density with youthful purple hues evident.


Red plummy fruit characters with tobacco Cabernet Sauvignon flavours in the background. Soft, ripe tannins give the wine great texture and length of flavour.

Best enjoyed with roast meats and strong cheese.

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.
