- Closure: Cork
The 1998 vintage was considered to be a very good vintage, yielding a miniscule 1.5 tonnes per acre. Very deep crimson colour with deep crimson hue. The nose is missing much of the classic Hunter characteristics of the earlier wines. Aroma of spice, plum, just a touch of blackberry followed by an earthy end note. The palate has very good concentration, with flavours of spice and blackpepper emerging. Fine grained dry tannins, followed by a very long spice, blackpepper aftertaste.
Cellar 4-5 years (2006-2007)
The only red wine I tasted from Brokenwood is the 1998 Shiraz Graveyard Vineyard, a seriously structured, dense, impressively constituted effort with well-integrated tannin and oodles of blackberry fruit intermixed with new saddle leather, pepper, and asphalt. Full, lush, and delineated, this big wine is accessible, but promises to be better with another 2-3 years of cellaring, and last for 15+.
