The Sacred Hill Special Selection range are widely regarded as the best value flagship range in the country. These famous super-premium wines enjoy a gilt-edged reputation and sit alongside the greatest names in New Zealand fine wine production.
Brokenstone is Sacred Hill’s Flagship Merlot-dominant wine and has consistently claimed top awards in NZ wine shows and the 2019 vintage boasts an impressive collection of stellar reviews. Fruit comes off Sacred Hill's famous Gimblett Gravels vineyards and year after year Brokenstone shows levels of plushness and savoury complexity seldom seen in Gimblett Gravels red wines.
This special wine is presented for sale in pristine condition, and will continue to hold in its perfect drinking window for the next five years or more.
This is an unmissable opportunity for any fan of premium, cellar-worthy New Zealand red wine.
James Suckling writes "A lovely nose of graphite, crushed stone, blackcurrants and blackberries. Medium- to full-bodied with silky, slightly chewy tannins. Succulent and vibrant on the palate with generous length and an evolving savory character. Transparent and clear. Delicious. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and malbec."
The winery writes "Impenetrable colour, the aroma is an explosion of dark damson plum, 10 spice, black olive, black liquorice and sandalwood notes. There is mouth filling richness on the palate with dark plum, Christmas cake and savoury, meaty complexity. The tannins are very fine grained with a soft, chalky quality providing beautifully balanced length."
