Brokenwood Cricket Pitch White

Brokenwood Cricket Pitch White

Lovely pale yellow colour with green tints. Citrus pith and florals on the nose rather than big tropical notes. Very appealing. Initial flavours of citrus and melon, light cool palate at 11.55 alcohol. Grapefruit, finger lime and a zesty acidity adds to the structure. A perfect summer drink paired with a wide range of food.

Wine Profile
Vinification
As the wine is from New South Wales, we are fortunate enough to be able to process most of the grapes here in the Hunter Valley, enabling an extra level of winemaker attention. This ensures the delicate grape aromas are preserved. Fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks.
Winemaker Comments
We’re quite proud to introduce this wine, the 30th 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 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. Several regions make up this blend being Cowra 32%, Orange 42%, and Hunter Valley 16% and Riverina 10% This wine also highlights our desire for lower alcohol and weighs in at 11.5% and with plenty of zesty fruit lift.
Food Pairing
A perfect Summer drink to pair with a wide range of foods. Enjoy with a dozen freshly shucked oysters and a whole baked barramundi for lunch, or a spicy Asian laksa for dinner.

Brokenwood Cricket Pitch White – An easy drinking wine to chill and enjoy this summer.

Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines has evolved from a weekend venture for self-professed hobby winemakers into one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels.

Brokenwood was founded by a trio of Sydney-based solicitors, Tony Albert, John Beeston and James Halliday, who paid a then record price of $970 per acre for a 10-acre block in the foothills of the Brokenback Ranges. The original block was destined to be a cricket ground for the local community but was instead planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Brokenwood

Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines has evolved from a weekend venture for self-professed hobby winemakers into one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels.
Founded by a trio of Sydney-based solicitors – Tony Albert, John Beeston and James Halliday- who paid a then record price of $970 per acre for a 10-acre block in the foothills of the Brokenback Ranges.
Nowadays a deservedly fashionable winery producing consistently excellent wines.

New South Wales

Australia’s first vines were planted in New South Wales on the Farm Cove foreshore. The first commercial wine was made there, and the first wine exported to England – by Gregory Blaxland in 1823. Given the size and climate diversity of NSW and its large population, it is surprising that the state does not play a bigger role in Australian wine. It is a state of great contrasts, from the huge, flat expanse of irrigated vineyards in the Riverina area near Griffith to the high uplands of Mudgee in the north. The Hunter Valley is the most recognised region within NSW, famous for its long-lived Semillons and unique styled Shiraz. Riverina is the largest wine-producing region. The more recent viticultural developments are within the regions along the Great Dividing Range: Mudgee, Orange, Cowra, Hilltops etc. There is much promise and interest in the wines now being produced within these regions.
