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...

Hine Cognac XO Premier Cru Antique 700ml CONFIRM AVAILABILITY

Cognac Brandy
Originally created in 1920 by Georges Hine for his family and close friends to enjoy. A fine accord of over forty Eaux de Vie, all aged a minimum of ten years, assembled exclusively from grapes grown to Grande Champagne, the finest cru of Cognac. A double microdistillation on sedimentery lees, progressively eliminates all but the most elite components. The finest Limousin and Troncais oak barrels are delicately toasted to infuse the ageing Cognac with a richness of chocolate, honey and vanilla characters.

François and Robert Hine were inspired by the beauty of a unique crystal decanter to bottle their flagship Cognac. Antique went on to become a huge success. Ninety years later, the House of Hine reinterprets Antique, now an XO Premier Cru, from fruit grown to undulating vineyards in Lignères Sonneville and Criteuil La Magdeleine, Touzac and Bonneuil. Hine's distinguished Cellar Master has achieved the perfect harmony through an assemblage of over forty Cognacs, of which the youngest are aged at least ten years and the oldest several decades.
Deep dark golden amber hue. A sensory journey, complex, rich and long persistent aromas of vanilla and honey, baked apple and spice before hints of liquorice and leather. Rich and rounded, lovely rancio on both nose and palate, deeper and more complex than its peers, it’s immediately identifiable by a unique raisiny concentration, with an unobtrusive touch of oak that holds the noble blend together.
