Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot Petit Verdot New South Wales
The first block of Brokenwood vines ever planted were on a cricket pitch. Acquisition of this ten acre property along McDonalds Rd in October of 1970 almost fell into competitor's hands during a bidding war against Hungerford Hill. By the time the site became productive in 1973, Brokenwood had established themselves at the apex of a resurgence in Hunter Valley viticulture. Cricket Pitch is a varietally rich mix of Cabernet and Shiraz, Merlot and Petit Verdot, from vineyards in the central ranges of New South Wales, Beechworth and McLaren Vale.

Fashioned to a fruit driven, drink now styling, Cricket Pitch is an entry level into one of the nation's most collectable labels. A precious block separating Cricket Pitch and the eminent Graveyard Vineyard has remained elusive to Brokenwood, who were taunted for many years with outrageous invoices sent to them by neighbouring Hungerford Hill over the collection of firewood. The warring estates have now called a truce in the interest of fine wine. Cabernet and Shiraz, Merlot and Petit Verdot are crushed into vinomatic fermenters and treated to a three day cold soak prior to vinification. Upon completion, Cricket Pitch is matured eighteen months in a selection of seasoned American and French oak barriques.
Medium to dark garnet. Aromas of red cherry and milled spice, vanillin and earth notes. Mid weight palate with some Cabernet cedar up front that leads to soft Shiraz richness. The oak regime is mainly older American and French so limited impact although some vanillin on both nose and palate with a long sweet finish. A drink now style that will continue to soften, excellent fruit flavours and balance being the features.
