Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red | 750 ml
The 25th vintage of Cricket Pitch Red (not counting the 1986) is both multi-varietal and multi-regional. Nearly 60% of fruit was from NSW with Gundagai and Central Ranges providing the bulk. Both regions enjoyed trouble free vintages. The remaining 40% is split equally between McLaren Vale and Beechworth. A very hot and short vintage in McLaren Vale, which meant keeping the water up to the vines. Beechworth had a near perfect vintage. Somewhat of a cliché but the combination of all really does over deliver in quality, appropriate being our 25th release.
Grapes: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 29% Shiraz
|Size: 750ml||ABV: 14%||Origin: Australia|
Excellent colour and mid-density. Lifted dark fruit and cedar notes on the nose. A rich mouth feel from the McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Fine tannins with the oak very much in the background ensuring great drinkability.
Pairs well with rich seafood, pasta and light meat dishes.
