Brokenwood

Established in 1970 by a trio of solicitors, Tony Albert, John Beeston and James Halliday, who bought ten acres of land that was supposed to be a cricket pitch, but instead of putting their whites on, they planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Their Hunter Valley Semillon is one of Australia's legendary white wines and their Graveyard Shiraz is... well, it is constantly over 90 points regardless of which critic reviews it.
