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.

Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Barossa South Australia
A third each of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre, crafted from small parcels of intensely flavoured, hand picked grapes, grown to some seriously old Barossa vines. The backbone for this engaging accord is sourced off a canon of distinguished, dry grown Barossa parcels, generally a hundred years of age. The maturity of these gnarled old plantings translates into meagre yields of the most tremendous concentration and sublime elegance.

Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre are gently crushed and vinified on skins for a week, pressed and treated to an extended maceration over the course of a month for optimal etraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Upon completion, batches are transferred to a selection of seasoned larger format 2500 litres foudre vats and French oak 500 litres puncheons for an extended term of sixteen months maturation. The larger oak format retains freshness of fruit while softening tannins and building layers of complexity.
