Style: Red

Description: A great follow up to the Gold Medal (2008 Hunter Valley Wine Show (Class 14) winning 2006. Being the third of three dry years the flavours and structure is very similar to 05 and the 06. If anything the 2007 has produced a wine that shows more drought year influence. The 2007 HV Shiraz has a medium density colour, but with bright youthful tints & aromas of mocha, dark chocolate and charry bramble from the oak. These are integrated with the blackberry, savoury Hunter Shiraz fruit. A very good alcohol weight restrained and carries the rich flavours. The palate has vanillin and dark cherry. The oak is forward at this stage but there is more than enough fruit to match it. Soft tannins and a dry finish round it out. Under screw cap this wine will stay fresh and youthful for some time, with developed characters evolving more slowly, as opposed to softening due to variable levels of oxidation under cork.

Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines has evolved from a weekend venture for self-professed hobby winemakers into one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels. 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 Brokenwood Ranges. The original block - original planned as a cricket ground for the local community was planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
