Brokenwood 2017 Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz (Hunter Valley)

Cellar Selection

The 2017 was a hot vintage in the Hunter Valley and even though alcohol is restrained, the warmth of the season is still felt in this wine. The nose is initially reductive so decant if drinking now. With air, notes of ripe blueberry, cherry, plum, dried rose and peppery spice make their way out. The palate is powerful yet focused, with taut, spicy, somewhat austere tannins alongside heaps of acidity and chalky texture. There's a slight bitterness on the finish. This needs more time in bottle to relax its iron grip. Drink 2022–2035. Christina Pickard
