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...

McLaren Vale enjoys an unrivalled reputation in Australia and indeed the world, for Shiraz grapes with fully developed characters, translating into wines of excellent fruit and fine length. The original Penny’s Hill Vineyard is at the very foothills east of McLaren Vale, slightly cooler than the valley floor, a legacy of extremely low yielding vines which produce fruit of amazing richness and complexity. Only the most splendid rows are hand picked for inclusion into the icon Footprint Shiraz. Grapes are open fermented on skins for a fortnight, followed by pressing into an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques for eighteen months maturation before the final assemblage.
Dark, black scarlet hues. Blackberry and dark plum fruit bouquets, black olives, cedarwood in support of underlying savouryness. Purity of provenance, elegance, minerality and focused oak, underlying layers of stunningly perfumed opaque fruit, a fully opulent wine of intensity and drive, resolves on a lingering length of black, blue and purple currant fruits.
