Okay, let’s get down to the good stuff. If your dad is a wine connoisseur, he’s likely to appreciate a delicious drop of Brokenwood.
You don’t want to make do with his usual weekend go-to drinks; how about kicking it up a notch with something really special, something he just wouldn’t buy for himself? Now that’s what makes great Father’s Day wine gifts.
To help in your selection, we’ve curated a selection of exceptional wines boasting a range of flavour profiles.
Bright, refreshing, and just a little bit sweet, the 2022 Sangiovese is instantly captivating with its vibrant hues and medium density.
Your loved one will enjoy an enticing fragrance of red and maraschino cherries on the nose, which sets the palate up for a scrumptious fruity burst.
The very first sip introduces the bright and savoury flavours of Sangiovese fruit, accompanied by a refreshing burst of juicy acidity. The characteristic drying tannins and hints of red spice and ginger contribute to an immensely enjoyable experience that culminates in a fantastic finish.
While it wasn't aged in new barrels, the subtle presence of sweet oak in the background adds an extra layer of complexity that every red-drinking dad is sure to love.
Pair this wine with pasta dishes or a classic Aussie BBQ. Is there anything better for a fabulous Father’s Day?
It’s a staple here at Brokenwood for a reason; the 2021 Hunter Valley Shiraz is a true classic with vibrant flavours and fine, long tannins right to the end.
This medium-bodied shiraz was released from French oak barrels after 18 months of maturing, but for fathers who aren’t in love with that distinct oak taste, don’t panic – the oak is very much in the background here, adding just enough flavour to produce wonderful complexity.
Wrap up this wine and its bright, youthful colour for the ultimate Father’s Day gift. Pair it with veal, duck, and cheese plates.
When we ask our crew what their favourite wines are, we almost always get the answer ‘Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir!’. And it’s for a good reason; this exceptional red wine hails from our Beechworth vineyard in Victoria, and it’s a true asset to the region’s ideal growing conditions for ripe, rich fruit.
This new release vintage boasts fruity aromas with a hint of lifted charry oak. On the palate, you’ll enjoy a soft combination of red fruit characters supported by fine, ripe tannins and fresh acidity.
If your dad is one for ageing his wines, this is a perfect addition to his collection, as it will age well over the medium term.
Pair this vintage with duck, quail or steak tartare.
The 2022 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir is currently only available to our SVC members (why not sign up?). If you’re looking for a delicious alternative, however, try the 2021 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir for your ideal Father’s Day wine.
Hand harvested from our Barossa Valley vineyard in South Australia, the 2020 Sturt Road Vineyard Shiraz is a darkly delicious vintage to suit every red-wine lover’s palate.
The rich, deep purple colours complement the plum and dark cherry aromas, while the palate shows an intoxicatingly pure fruit sweetness and density. The ferric-like tannins are fine and long, and new French puncheons add a lovely length and complexity to the wine’s natural fruity freshness.
Pair this with succulent red meat dishes for the ultimate Father’s Day feast.
One of the real treasures of Brokenwood Wines is our 2020 Wildwood Road Cabernet Sauvignon. Harvested from the iconic Margaret River region in Western Australia, this full-bodied red wine is one of the best Father’s Day wine gifts we could recommend.
The classic aromas mingle with lifted blue fruit and a hint of dusty oak. On the palate, you’ll enjoy sage notes and fine tannins from the fruit and oak.
Our winemaker’s infused this bottle with a lovely acidity and a delicious cedar finish to keep you coming back for more.
If you’re looking for a red wine to take pride of place in your dad’s collection, the Wildwood Road will age beautifully for many years to come.
Best paired with steak tartare, carpaccio or lamb dishes.
Some of our favourites include:
For those seeking to go that extra mile with their Father’s Day wine gifts, we’ve got the prime solution: our Brokenwood Wine Club memberships.
Being part of our wine clubs involves more than just savings (though they’re pretty tasty, as well). Your dad will become a member of the Brokenwood family. He’ll get access to premium wines, invites to exclusive members-only events, and complimentary wine-tastings year-round for the whole family to enjoy.
There are so many benefits to joining a wine club, from delicious savings to being part of the rich Hunter Valley community.
Our wine clubs come in three tasty options, but we think your dad will love being a Cru Club or Single Vineyard Club member. Check out the details of each club and get ready to sign your dad up to the best Father’s Day wine gift he’s ever received.
We’ve saved the best till last. Now that you’ve found the perfect Father’s Day wine gifts for your dad, why not tie the bow on a truly spectacular day out at the Hunter Valley as well?
