There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

All Saints store their ageing fortifieds in the Great Hall, an area of a castle built in the 1880s, lined with huge 100-year-old oak casks, filled with rare wines. Some of these fortified wines are up to eighty years old and form the base of the rich fortified All Saints blends. The wines are amongst Australia's and the world's greatest, internationally extolled for their richness and lusciousness. All Saints Estate won the first gold medal for Australian wine in 1873 at the London International Exhibition and continues to win trophies and receive rave reviews today.

All Saints pride and joy are the oldest vineyard blocks of vines, originally planted just after the First World War. These old-timers are picture-postcard vines, weather-beaten and twisted, defying the years to produce fantastic fruit. Predominantly made from Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro grapes, with added brandy spirit, which is used to fortify the wine, The Keep Tawny expresses the inimitabley rich personality of the deep, rancio-like qualities of Rutherglen grapes. During maturation of any fortified wine a significant amount of wine is lost through evaporation. This loss is normally between two to five per cent each year, and is affectionately referred to as the angels share, now there's something to look forward to! Alcohol 18.0%
Tawny colour, red hues. Mix of ripe berry fruit, rancio characters from extended barrel maturation. On the palate there is ripe fruit giving a generous mouth feel with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Nuances of deep liqueuring, Port and plum-like, chocolatey and wet with sweet scents of browned old grapes and dried sugary fruit. Delicious, nutty and velvety, ripe yet texturally soft, slabs of melty raisined chocolate.
