2006 Verona Vineyard Shiraz

2006 Verona Vineyard Shiraz
(SPECIAL MUSEUM RELEASE)

Hunter Valley, NSW

Excellent deep, dense red with purple tints. Very attractive aromas of dark chocolate and berries. Earthy, briar and ‘pepper’ Shiraz characters. The wood and fruit tannins give a balanced finish and great length. A beautiful wine consumed now, or hold off for another 5 to 10 years.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Comments
The Verona Vineyard is across the road from the Graveyard Vineyard and has been under Brokenwood’s care for the past fifteen years. First planted in 1968, the original cuttings are from old vineyards in the region. This is the fifth bottling of Verona as a Single Vineyard wine. The Hunter Valley has a long history of wet years being followed immediately by scorchers, 1997 – 1998, 2002 – 2003, and 2004 – 2005. The feature of these years is the previous year has a wet autumn, dry winter followed by a very hot summer. Another feature is the very high quality of Shiraz. We had 95% of our Shiraz picked before the extreme heat of the weekend 10th to 12th February 2017 that saw the temperature hit 44, 47 and 45C over the three-day period. Staff and vines survived and this is the first release of a wonderful collection of 2017 Single Vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz wines from Brokenwood. All are characterised by deep colour and lifted ripe fruit.
