"The 2006 Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz is an excellent example of complex, elegant Hunter Shiraz. Cinnamon, allspice and anise aromas mingle with crushed blackberries, iodine, underbrush and a whiff of leather. A solid backbone of high acidity and medium to firm, finely grained tannins support the abundance of earthy / spicy fruit. Very long finish with just a hint of oak remaining. Drink 2013-2029. Founded in 1970, Brokenwood, by virtue of its illustrious founders (3 lawyers from Sydney) and a proven track-record for producing superlative wines, is today amongst the Hunter Valley’s icons. Production is now at around 100,000 cases with about 50% of this being accounted for by the Cricket Pitch Red and White. Hunter Valley fruit constitutes around 25% of production and it’s their wines from this region that really make Brokenwood outstanding. Brokenwood’s famous Graveyard Vineyard was planted in 1968 using Shiraz cuttings from the vineyards of a couple of the Hunter’s oldest examples: Tyrrell’s and McWilliams. The soils at Graveyard are relatively infertile, slowing the ripening process and giving small vines."
