Graveyard is Brokenwood's flagship label, and has established itself as one of Australia's most sought after wines. Displaying the best qualities of super premium Hunter Valley Shiraz, it is picked from Brokenwood's prized 34 year old estate vineyard.
This deep colored wine has youthful tints and spicy briarwood, clove and red cherry aromas. Background oak and some vanilla are evident. The palate is initially soft followed by red berry and spice flavors. This structured wine has earthy, briary, savory characters, grape/oak tannins and a seamless palate.
"A gorgeous wine that defies the modern idea that wines have to be big and brash to be excellent. This one feels simultaneously fresh and old as the hills, with a meaty, merdy appeal. Red fruit aromas and flavors are concentrated and sprinkled in black pepper; the tannins are manageable now, but still substantial enough to age. A modest 13.5% alcohol, and, bless 'em, sealed en screwcap. Tastes good now, but probably even better around 2009."
