Brokenwood Shiraz Hunter Valley Graveyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The middle year of three dry vintages and very similar to the 2005. Medium density colour with purple tints. Lifted aromas of dark cherry, clove and ‘sweet’ earth. These are complimented by soft mocha oak. Initial flavours of dark chocolate and plums. The tannins for the 2006 are ripe with a dry, cedar edge. Some spice/pepper characters on the finish. Perfect weight of fruit, alcohol and tannin. A wine with great ‘line’ - a Len Evan’s expression used to convey structure, balance and length. A comparisonto other Graveyard Shiraz is difficult as it is quite the complete wine but the alcohol and style is close to 1994/2005. Lifted aromas of dark cherry, clove and ‘sweet’ earth. These are complimented by soft mocha oak. Initial flavours of dark chocolate and plums supported by the ripe tannins. Some spice/pepper characters on the finish. Perfect weight of fruit, alcohol and tannin. A wine with great ‘line’ - a Len Evan’s expression used to convey structure, balance and length. A comparisonto other Graveyard Shiraz is difficult as it is quite the complete wine but the alcohol and style is close to 1993/1994.

A very VERY balanced wine... French oak, almost made 'by the book' but definitely an artisan's wine... almost flawless... a bit young now (2008) but with great potential...
