Brokenwood Hunter Valley Shiraz is a lovely mid depth colour with purple tints. Aromas of lifted red spice, ginger and earthy notes. Ripe fruit and low oak impact on the palate, with the new oak providing a slight vanillin sweetness complimenting the ripe fruit. The ripe fruit tannins are perfect and with the acid give a very long finish to the wine.
Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines is one of Australia’s most reputable premium wine labels and a must-visit in the Hunter Valley. Consistently listed as a 5 star winery, Brokenwood is home to the famous Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz, the highly acclaimed ILR Reserve Semillon, and the popular Cricket Pitch Range. Brokenwood was founded by a trio of Sydney-based solicitors, Tony Albert, John Beeston and James Halliday, who paid a then record price of $970 per acre for a 10-acre block in the foothills of the Brokenback Ranges. The original block was destined to be a cricket ground for the local community but was instead planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
