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...

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Clare South Australia
David O'Leary and Nick Walker have amassed hundreds of gold medals and trophies between them, including the prestigious Jimmy Watson. A shared confidence in the quality of Clare Valley fruit was the catalyst for them to establish their own winery. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Doctor's Block at Polish Hill, a superior cool climate site, dry grown and low yielding, is vinified alongside a choice parcel of Malbec, picked off the estate vineyard in Watervale, taming the solid tannin structure and bringing the assembled wine forward.

Walker and O'Leary both love the job of making wine. They find their inspiration working amongst the vineyards of picturesque Valley Clare. Two thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, the balance in Malbec, are separately vinified through the action of wild yeasts in two and four tonnes fermenters, over the course of a fortnight. Batches are hand plunged twice daily and held on skins for a further fortnight to enhance complexity and build tannin structure. Upon completion, components are pressed and racked to a selection of seasoned and new French oak for two years maturation.
Rich ruby red, inky, vibrant hues. Well perfumed with red forest fruits, sweet cassis and intense florals. Textural palate, concentrated, generously flavoured, the gorgeous florals flow, classic forest fruits and intensity of oak, supported by juicy tannins and divine mineral acid length. a fully elegant style of Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by the affable tannin structure of Malbec.
