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 Hunter Valley is renowned for its dry table wines of Semillon and Shiraz. Brokenwood's production of these is further supported by premium grapes sources 'from all the right regions for all the right reasons' such as Orange, Beechworth and McLaren Vale.
A single block of mainly 50yo vines was hand-picked, destemmed, open-fermented, 8-19 days on skins, matured in French oak of various shapes and sizes. Excellent colour through to the rim. Take a bottle with you to drink with Maurice O'Shea and he'll be ecstatic. It's supple, perfectly balanced, a pure expression of a quirky vineyard that has been the work of Iain Riggs for four decades. '18 was a great vintage, and he pinged it.
