Brokenwood Wines

2015 Shiraz

2015 Shiraz

Hunter Valley, NSW

Mid-density colour typical of the Hunter Valley. Lifted red cherry aromas and earthy notes. The charry oak is part of the nose but in the background. Quite a rich, flavoursome palate of fine tannins and maraschino cherry notes, not unexpected as this wine is mostly from the 1968 old vines. Balanced and appealing for early to medium drinking.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Part vinomatic and part open top 2-4 tonne fermenters. The latter plunged two times per day. After 5 days, pressed off, with malolactic fermentation conducted in tank. The wine then went into 100% French oak made up of 25% puncheons and overall 25% new oak. The Shiraz grapes are sourced solely from the Graveyard Vineyard, being clonal vines planted through the 90s and massale selection from the 1968 plantings, with the oldest at 10 years of age.
Vinification
If we have said it once, we have said it a million times, the word normal just doesn’t exist for the Hunter Valley. There was a three week turn around in picking compared to 2014, and most Semillon was off in the last week of January. It was a very dry winter of 2014 with only 54mm of rain from May to July. A very good budburst and spring, but then a cold and wet December resulted in quite large canopies and disease pressure. Thankfully all of our fruit is handpicked and the vineyard team did a great job of getting clean, sound fruit in. This vintage is stylistically on song, a smaller production overall due to the East Coast low hanging around at the end of January to early February period.
Food Pairing
