2017 Brokenback Shiraz
$40.00
- +

The Brokenback Vineyard, Pokolbin, was planted in the 1970's by a visionary group led by the late, legendary, Len Evans, AO, OBE. Over the ensuing years the vines have produced premium wines under a variety of labels. In 2008 the vineyard then in two parts, was purchased privately and amalgamated.

Our Brokenback Shiraz is a rich and flavoursome wine and a classic in our range. Typical of this vineyard, the wine displays pepper, spice and layers of ripe red berry fruit flavours. With a refined tannin structure and subtle French oak characters, the seamless palate is complex and persistent.

Cellaring :  Drinking well now or gain rewarding bottle age complexity with careful cellaring up to 10 years.

2019 Black Cluster Premium Shiraz

The Leogate Estate Black Cluster Premium Hunter Shiraz is made from grapes grown on our 50 year old historic Black Cluster Vineyard, Mistletoe Lane, Pokolbin, Hunter Valley, NSW.

This single vineyard sits at the foothills of the Brokenback Mountain Range and the grapes are carefully selected from individual old vine Shiraz blocks, then fermented and matured using a selection of new and older French and American oak barrels.

This is a rich red wine displaying layers of red and blue fruits that are well complemented by sweetness and structure from the oak barrels. The presence of fine tannins and spicey notes contributes to the seamless palate, delivering a wine of greater character, intensity and balance.

The wine is ready for immediate drinking but also has excellent potential for careful cellaring up to 10+ years.

2018 Malabar Reserve Shiraz

A winemaker selection of either the western or eastern blocks across the estate’s holdings that is is increasingly and inevitably, I am told, from the eastern side.

With the shading and attenuated ripening pattern, justifiably so. The result compacts a density of dark to mulberry fruit scents, with a leafy freshness embedded across a sinewy, firm tannic fiber.

Far more structured and authoritative than the other blocks due to tighter packed, compact grapes. This higher quotient of skin to liquid ratio imparts a full-bodied textural intrigue. Almost Italianate in its dry, structural pose. Savoury and inimitably Hunter.
