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..

Colour is a taffetta brown gold with deep brick reddish cloaks. The bouquet is world class, absolutely wonderfully giving out hints of almond, citrus, heavy on the walnuts and bitter fruit. Marmalade and tobacco on the tongue and a clear palate that is uncloying and void of unwanted sugars or excessive complexity. There are highlights of misty drawing room odours, leather, anise and sweet pickles with nuances of cigar smoke and tannin. A delicious honey flavoured Muscat with nuts, citrus and the capacity to lie in waiting.
