Brokenwood Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz 2014 ~ Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia
98/100 James Halliday
97/100 James Suckling
James Halliday "It hardly needs be said this is a great Graveyard, shortlisted for Wine of the Year. It is full-bodied, with intense intersections and trails of black fruits, earth, leather, spice, oak and ripe tannins running in all directions. Its magic is that it remains coherent, with its line (or focus) never compromised."
James Suckling " The palate has a sense of depth and focused concentration in a mid-weight frame that cuts to the core of Hunter shiraz, tannins are juicy and ripe, really sweeping, gathers pace and builds smoothly as it goes. Great wine.......A really focused nose with deep black cherry and blackberry fruits in abundance, super pure, the oak adds bright spicy appeal." In early vintages, this wine was known as Graveyard Vineyard Hermitage.
