Brokenwood Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz 2011
Hunter Valley
Exceptional Langtons Classification. Graveyard is the jewel of the Brokenwood crown, it endures as one of the nation's great first growths. A word to the squeamish, the property may have been zoned as Pokolbin cemetery in 1882 but was never populated. Established to descendants of colonial rootstock in 1968, the vines at Graveyard struggle to yield meagre harvests of the most intense berries. A Shiraz of outstanding line, as Len Evans coined the phrase, to convey fine structure, exquisite balance and generous palate length.

A terroir of extremely heavy clays over loam subsoils, pockets of ironstone here and there, topsoils are very mean and shallow. Yields from the Graveyard Vineyard are low, but fruit flavour is intense through the fastidious employment of meticulous viticultural techniques. Grapes are all hand picked and treated to an extended cold soak, followed by several days of vinification in a collection of three tonnes, open top fermenters at 26┬░C to 28┬░C, hand plunged twice daily. Upon completion to dry, batches are pressed off skins and filled to a high proportion of new French oak barrels and larger format 500 Litres puncheons, for a course of malolactic and term of maturation. Alcohol 13.0%
 
Bright red colour, youthful hues. A nose in the savoury red spectrum, almost cherry compote, bran meal and vanillan oak with sufficient fruit to balance. These follow on to the medium bodied palate with plenty of sweet flavours up front, initially soft to mid weight tannins, followed by red berry and spice flavours. Fine grape and oak tannins begin to grip on the excellent, lasting finish.

What makes a great vintage for Hunter Valley Semillon? Most would say one without flooding rain, ravaging fires or devastating drought. While this is certainly important, balance in the wine reigns supreme. Mid January always brings with it a slight nervousness in Hunter Valley. Having been battered vintage after vintage with drought and pouring rain, is it any wonder that black cats are avoided and ladders given a wide berth?

Ever since pioneers established their first vines in the Hunter Valley, it became clear to viticulturalists that the invigorating soils and mesoclimes could produce a style of wine which is unique to the world. Semillon grapes from prominent vineyards are crushed and de-stemmed before the must is chilled and the juices drained. After a period of cold settling, the clarified juices are racked, warmed, inoculated with neutral yeasts and vinified at cool temperatures. After completion, the parcels are assembled and filtered, stabilised and bottled. Handling of the wine is kept to a minimum throughout all stages of the vinification to capture and retain the inimitable fruit characters of Hunter Valley Semillon.
 
Light straw yellow with an olive hue. Aromatic and clean, with hay and citrus characters, macadamia and tangelo, marmalade and toast. A fine mineral palate with light tropical acids and developed fruit characters, apple/ nut flan, key lime and slate. In fine balance, whilst already showing the benefits of a few years under glass, will continue to develop superbly.

Lakes Folly have trained their vineyard to make profound Cabernet. The old vines, now well and truly self regulated to produce low crops of high quality fruit, are well established and deliver consistency even in difficult years. Under the warmer Hunter Valley climes, mature tannins are readily achieved. The riper the fruit the bigger the wine but there is a price to pay in terms of elegance and finesse. Crop levels are critical in building complexity and the weather has a final say. The aim is to grow great fruit and give maximum attention to detail from vineyard to bottle. Hand picking, gentle crushing and traditional open fermentations in French oak, small barrel maturation and hand bottling, are all essential to the Lakes Folly style.
 
Vibrant brick red. Aromas of dark fruits, black cherries and blackberry with hints of charred oak and coffee. The palate is deceptive, elegant and soft, exhibiting perfect balance and offering great sweetness of fruit, yet appointed with underlying power. Lakes Folly improves greatly after breathing for a day or longer, the style exhibits clarity of structure and great length of flavour, intentionally kept restrained and refined, a wine of class, complexity and grace.
