Brokenwood Cricket Pitch White | 750 ml
We’re quite proud to introduce this wine as it is the 26th vintage of the blend. The label didn’t get the full Cricket Pitch livery until the 1995 vintage, although the Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot was labelled as Cricket Pitch for the 1991 wine released in 1993. This wine is a blend of the highest proportions of Sauvignon Blanc we’ve bottled. Four regions make up the blend being Cowra 85%, Hunter Valley 5%, Orange 3% and McLaren Vale 7%. This wine also highlights our desire for lower alcohol and weighs in at 12.0% and with plenty of zesty fruit lift.
Grapes: 60% Sauvignon Blanc 40% Semillon,

Excellent green/yellow colour. Our style for this wine is to not have too many green grassy characters, but more lifted tropical Sauvignon Blanc aromas and melon notes. Lovely soft round entry on the palate and even at 12.0% there is plenty of fruit richness. Grapefruit flavours and a zesty acidity give a pleasing finish to the wine. A perfect summer drink and great with a wide range of food.
Goes great with freshly shucked oysters, a whole steamed/baked fish and white meat dishes.
