A classic. Year in year out you know what you are going to get with this juicy, fruit-forward and supple red blend from the winemaking heroes at Brokenwood. Great value."

  • Super colour with dark reds and purple tints. Riper dark fruit aromas than previously vintages, due to a warm year in McLaren Vale. The vanillin oak background adds extra lift to the dark cherry/plum aromas, and finishes with a ripe tannin mouth feel. Turkish delight and dark chocolate from the Shiraz component, makes this a very enjoyable Cricket Pitch blend.

    The 26th vintage of Cricket Pitch Red (not counting the 1986) is both multi-varietal and multi-regional. Just over 60% of the fruit is from NSW with the balance coming from McLaren Vale followed by Beechworth. A cool year in the Hunter Valley but excellent in Central Ranges and Gundagai with McLaren Vale experiencing a hot vintage. Vintage 2016 was outstanding in Beechworth and the combination of these regions really does deliver a super enjoyable dry red.
