About This Wine:
The sustainably farmed estate is situated at the foot of the Brokenback Range in Australia’s oldest wine producing region, the Hunter Valley. Its current custodians are Bill and Vicki Widin, who bought the original Brokenback Vineyard in 2008.
Today, the vineyard consists of Chardonnay and Semillon on the flat gravel soils, Shiraz on the eastern and western-facing slopes of the adjacent rise, as well as Verdelho and Tempranillo. The ultra-modern winemaking facility is a showpiece in the middle of the vineyard, and includes a cellar door (tasting room), The Gates Restaurant, a wedding venue and The Gatehouse accommodation (lodging).
The 2015 vintage of the red blend known as “The Gatecrasher” Balmain marries Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in a rich, velvety style. It’s a wine of which Len Evans would be proud.
