Editors notes

Brokenwood’s expressive Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz is the doyen of the Hunter Valley shiraz genre, following on from the great Lindeman’s Hunter River burgundies of the 1960s. The wine evokes superb individuality of the vineyard as well as showing profound regional definition, especially with the patina of age. It epitomises modernity and heritage yet retains a compelling freshness.

    "Medium to full red-purple, oak is quite assertive on the complex bouquet, but the wine comes together on the palate which, while trenchantly demanding patience, has masses of earthy black fruit supported by excellent tannin management."

    "What a surprise packet. Gorgeous wine. An unheralded year but this is looking very smart. Balanced, classical, earthy, the expression of Hunter terroir clear and true. Very Hunter. An even fling of tannin. Ripe but not dense. Easy, effortless medium-weight. Lovely slippery creamy mouthfeel."

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

New South Wales

Home to 14 official wine regions, New South Wales offers a diverse and wide-ranging expanse to produce wines that appeal to every palate.

From Australia’s oldest continuous wine region – the famous Hunter Valley – to exciting new cool climate regions such as Orange, the Southern Highlands and Tumbarumba, these regions can be found to produce some of the best Australian Wine around. Recognised as the second-largest wine-producing state in Australia, New South Wales is also the most populous state with its wine consumption far outpacing the region's wine production. Although the Hunter Valley region is well known, the majority of wineries are located along the Murray and Darling Rivers (in the south-east of the state) which supplies water for many of the region's wineries.

Other regions within New South Wales include the Canberra District, Cowra, Gundagai, Hastings River, Hilltops, Mudgee, New England, Perricoota, Riverina and the Shoalhaven Coast.

About the brand Brokenwood

What began in 1970 as a weekend winemaking project in the Hunter Valley for three Sydney solicitors has gone on to become one of Australia’s most iconic wineries. Established by none other than James Halliday, Tony Albert, and John Beeston, Brokenwood started out as a part-time passion but bigger things beckoned and over the years, Brokenwood has boasted a roll call of winemakers to boot, notably current chief winemaker and managing director, Iain Riggs, who joined the team in 1982.

Iain shook things up on his arrival, introducing new winery equipment and the first white wines to the Brokenwood portfolio. Since then, Brokenwood’s reputation as a white winemaker has come to equal its one as a red wine producer, with its flagship ILR Reserve Semillon and Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz highly sought after around the world.
