Great colour on release, lots of green tints in this young and easy drinking wine. Lifted tropical Sauvignon Blanc aromas and citrus/melon notes. Lovely soft round entry on the palate and even at 12.5% 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.
We’re quite proud to introduce this wine, the 29th 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 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon. Several regions make up this blend being Cowra 57%, Orange 18%, Tumbarumba 16% and Hunter Valley 9%. This wine also highlights our desire for lower alcohol and weighs in at 12.5% and with plenty of zesty fruit lift.
