Vinification

Whole bunch pressing, wild ferment in new French oak have come together in spectacular fashion. The wine was fermented in 30% new French oak and the balance older, from a variety of cooperages.

Winemakers Comments

The Indigo property has different soils, aspect, clones and vine age, but it is another great example of what this region can do for Chardonnay. We have minimum winemaker input to let the regional characteristics shine through.

Sufficient winter rainfall in 2017 saw the vines off to a good bud burst and then 55mm of rain in early December was very welcome. Particularly as temperatures had stared to climb with highs of 34C and then 35C in December being reached. January 2018 saw a top temperature of 40.7C tempered with a much needed 70mm of rain towards the of January. Harvest progressed under clear blue skies.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2018 is ‘tighter’ in structure than previous vintages, but still has a lovely pale yellow/green colour and lifted grapefruit and apple aromas. Our oak regime is 100% French and mostly 500L puncheons, so any bran meal or vanillin notes are very subtle. The crisp acidity and low alcohol makes for quite a zesty mouth feel. Grapefruit pith and rock melon carry through for a long finish. This wine will age superbly.

Food

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

At nearly 40 years young, 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 original land that was to become the Cricket Pitch Vineyard was purchased in 1970 and planted immediately to Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Graveyard Vineyard, planted to Shiraz in 1968, was bought in 1978 and by the mid 1980s was producing a premium Single Vineyard wine. The first Langton's Classification of Premium Australian Wine was launched in 1993 and the Graveyard Shiraz was then, and remains, the highest-placed Hunter Valley Shiraz.

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 from as far afield as Orange, Beechworth and McLaren Vale.

Today, Brokenwood boasts an impressive array of premium quality wines, sourced from 'all the right regions, for all the right reasons', from the Graveyard Shiraz to the Cricket Pitch Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Cricket Pitch Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot.

“Our philosophy is to produce wine that focuses on the unique regional characteristics of the Hunter Valley and premium wine regions throughout Australia.” Iain Riggs, Chief Winemaker & Managing Director, Brokenwood Wines.
