Brokenwood Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A mid-weight pinot noir. Good depth of colour and youthful purple tints evident. Great complexity to the aromas. Lifted red cherry over sweet earthy savoury characters with a touch of oak sweetness. The balance is aided by ripe tannins giving a lingering finish. This will mature further, although enjoyable as a fresh, zippy young Pinot Noir. Food: Duck, quail and steak tartare.

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.

Light red. Heady aromas of strawberry, raspberry and smoky spices. Lively, supple red berry flavors are complicated by tangy spice and floral qualities. Very suave, with a sweet, lively, persistent finish and no rough edges. This is delicious right now. The 2008 Pinots are very well made but perhaps the heat spikes in 2008 robbed them of that extra finesse. Giving a pale ruby color, the 2008 Pinot Noir has pretty wild cherry and raspberry aromas with a suggestion of moss and dried mint. There's a good amount of pure, straightforward berry fruit on the palate countered by crisp acidity and a low to medium level of fine tannins. The finish is long yet a little simple. Drink it now to 2015. Starts off with cherry, cedar and slightly mushroomy aromas, delivering more of the same on the palate. This nicely concentrated wine is medium-bodied and shows some tannin and crisp acids on the finish. That said, opt for drinking it over the near term. - J.C.

Light and silky, with a lovely burst of cherry and raspberry fruit up front, lingering on the polished finish with hints of cream and flowers. Drink now through 2013. 200 cases imported. -HS Medium red. Smoky cherry and dark berry aromas, with deeper licorice and sassafras qualities adding complexity. Silky black raspberry and cherry compote flavors are broad and sweet, with musky herbs gaining strength with air. Finishes with a hint of sweet maple and gentle lift.

Pinot Noir 2005 - Brokenwood: Pinot Noir 2005 - Rotwein von BrokenwoodEin Wein von robuster, großartiger purpurner, warmer Farbe und toller Aromenkomplexität. Es lassen sich dunkle Kirschen, dunkle Schokolade über süßen erdigen Aromen ausmachen. Im Hintergrund spielen vanillige Eichetöne mit. Am Gaumen schmecken wir einen Wein mit kräftigem Körper mit einer reichen Fruchtnote. Aromen wie dunkle Früchte und Brandy Pudding werden ausbalanciert mit weichen Tanninen, die in ein lang anhaltendes Finale münden. Genießen Sie den Brokenwood Pinot Noir 2005 schon jetzt in jungen Jahren oder geben ihm noch einige Jahre der Reife.     Weingut: BrokenwoodLand: AustralienRegion: VictoriaRebsorte: Pinot NoirInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 5 bis 7 JahreFassreife: 12 Monate in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°C Rotwein > Australien > Victoria
