As the weather warms up and the calendar flicks forward just a little too fast, we’ve realised that it’s that time of year again: gift giving season is upon us! If you’ve just felt a flicker of ill-disguised anxiety at those words, we apologise. If you’re excited by the prospect of buying gifts for your loved ones, we like your style.
However you feel about the upcoming festive season, we want to inspire you with some of our top gifts for the wine lovers in your life. We also want to save you from metre-long queues and hours spent circling the department store carpark, neither of which make gift buying that much fun.
With an exquisite selection of reds, whites, rosé and sparkling to choose from, Brokenwood Wines online store has options to suit every palate. Read on to explore our Brokenwood Wines gift guide to assist you in choosing the perfect bottle for that special someone, and what to look for when buying Australian wine online.
Let’s start with the basics. There’s nothing better than receiving a thoughtfully selected bottle of your favourite wine to enjoy during end-of-year festivities. We have a delicious range of single vineyard red, white and rosé available online, either purchased on their own or crafted into your own special bundle.
Our white wines include the ever-popular Lillydale Vineyard Chardonnay. Light and vibrant, this summery wine features notes of grapefruit, white peach and cashew. Prefer something with a touch more tang? Try our award-winning Brokenwood Semillon, the perfect fusion of zesty and sweet with hints of apple, lemon pith, lemongrass and floral notes.
For something extra special, be sure to try the ILR Reserve Semillon, a scrumptiously unique white with hints of Tahitian lime, brioche and beeswax. Another similar option is the 96 points 2019 Oakey Creek Vineyard Semillon, featuring notes of lemongrass, brioche and beeswax.
Looking for something in red? Explore our range of red wines, including our red berry, cherry and bramble Pinot Noir or the maraschino cherry lifted Sangiovese. Enjoy the deep and earthy flavours of the Hunter Valley with spicy undertones and notes of ripe fruits with the Hunter Valley Shiraz.
When it comes to Rosé, we have the perfect blend for every pink drinker. Our newly released Brokenwood 2022 Rosato delivers an almost Turkish delight aroma with a vibrant spiced and ginger palate. Talk about the ultimate Christmas day drink!
Some of our most popular single wines include:
What could be better than one bottle of wine? Two! What’s even better than two bottles of wine? Three, of course. But how about topping three bottles of wine? Okay, you see where we’re going with this. We know one bottle is (usually) never enough, and we also know that Brokenwood Wines are better together.
We’ve created delicious pre-packaged selections of matched reds and whites that compliment each other perfectly. To add an extra heartfelt flourish, you can include a personalised message to your recipient during checkout for a complete gifting experience.
Beautifully boxed and carefully paired, our trio packs bring together three fantastic bottles that deliver on flavour, aroma and aesthetic (because wrapping counts just as much as the gift itself, of course). Our Whites and Rosé | Trio Pack features a 2022 Cricket Pitch Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, a 2022 Pinot Gris and our fast favourite 2022 Rosato, the perfect combo for alfresco drinks and garden parties.
For something richer, our Must-Have Reds | Trio Pack includes a 2020 Cricket Pitch Cabernet Sauvignon, a 2021 Pinot Noir and a 2020 Shiraz, perfect for summer barbecues, dinner parties and lazy Christmas drinks.
For the wine lover who appreciates every shade, our White, Red & Rosé | Trio Pack nods to the flavours of the Mediterranean with a home-grown 2022 Cricket Pitch Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, a 2020 Cricket Pitch Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot and a 2022 Rosato.

Our six pack boxes are a little heavy for Santa to bring down the chimney, so order wine online and we’ll deliver it for him! Our 6 pack boxes feature some of our most popular varieties of Rosato, Semillon and Shiraz to suit every budget. Plus, that big box will look pretty fabulous all wrapped up under the tree.
Enjoy the crisp and fresh flavours of the Hunter Valley, with red, white and rosé options, perfectly paired and great for every occasion.

We’re all wine lovers here, but we certainly won’t turn down a glass of pure gold to bring in the festivities. Lark Whisky has come to Brokenwood for an extra special collaboration on the Lark Whiskey x Brokenwood Rare Cask Limited Release Whisky.
This decadent blend begins with a nose of mulberries and blood plums, then melts into flavours of marmalade, mince pies and fruit spice. Honey, apple and brown sugar dance on the tongue before a finish of dark chocolate, orange oil and green peppercorns glide over the palate for a seriously decadent experience.
The ageing inside two Graveyard Shiraz finishing casks adds an extra special layer of flavour to this carefully crafted whisky, making it the absolute perfect gift for every whisky connoisseur.
With only 505 packs made, enjoy a 100ml bottle now and save the 700ml bottle to age further for a richer and deeper experience.
