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...

Brookland Valley retain access to the finest fruit, grown to the best sites in five of Margaret River's six sub regions, providing an impressive palette of flavours from which to craft wine. Exclusively hand picked Chardonnay from the estate vineyard at Wilyabrup, fruit is whole bunch pressed to retain freshness and fineness, transferred to an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques for vinification through wild indigenous yeasts, infusing wonderful texture and complexity. Upon completion, batches are treated to full malolactic on gross lees solids for nine months, occasionally lees stirred battonage for lovely creamy textures and extended length to the palate.
Pale straw green hues. Intense aromatics of pink grapefruit, nectarine and stone fruit, cashews and spice. The palate is richly flavoured, flintyness, lemon zest, nougat and grilled nuts, a full Chardonnay of power and concentration. Barrel fermentation has lent creaminess and palate weight to a wine that finishes with extraordinary length of flavour.
