New South Wales | Hunter Valley

Our Review

Brokenwood’s big-selling Hunter Valley Semillon provides the volume to balance the limited quantities of the flagships ILR Reserve Semillon and Graveyard Shiraz. Brokenwood purchased the Graveyard Vineyard from Hungerford Hill in ’78 and has since fully rehabilitated the site. In late ’22, it acquired the Oakey Creek Vineyard, a long-time source of fruit for the Oakey Creek Vineyard Semillon and the aforementioned ILR. There is also a range of wines from regions including Beechworth, Orange, Central Ranges, McLaren Vale, Cowra and elsewhere. Ian Riggs had 38 vintages at the helm of Brokenwood before retiring in '20. He remains on the board of directors and is still a valued consultant; he has also contributed a great deal to various wine industry organisations. -JAMES HALLIDAY
