Grapes were harvested from the premium viticultural regions of Orange, Beechworth and Hunter Valley. Fruit was crushed, 100% de-stemmed and chilled to 3 degrees for a 4 day cold soak. Fermentation took place in both open fermenters and vinomatics, where traditional hand plunging and gentle pump overs occurred twice daily. Fermentation temperatures were 24-32 degrees and ensured a finished wine with wonderful fruit purity, vibrant crimson red colour and fine, long-chained tannins. Maturation for 15 months in French and American oak, of which 20% was new.
‘If your wine is as scarce as gold you must be paid in gold’. These were the words of Melbourne restaurateur Herman Schneider that accompanied three gold half-sovereigns, payment for five cases of 1975 Brokenwood Cabernet Sauvignon. The proprietor of Two Faces, had previously ordered wine from the 1973 and 1974 vintages, but such was the demand none could be supplied. Not so the 1975, with the wine duly delivered late that year.
Grilled duck breast, pasta with pork and fennel sausage or BBQ'd lamb chops with rosemary.
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
