  • Product details
    This excellent Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red Blend (Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot) is a multi-regional blend with 60% of the fruit from NSW with the balance coming from McLaren Vale and Beechworth. Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines original block was supposed to be a cricket ground for the community, hence their famous cricket pitch label and this 2016 Cricket Pitch Red Blend is an outstanding vintage of this much-loved wine. A drink-now style that will further soften with medium-term bottle ageing but, why wait, you know it's great.
  • Tasting notes
    Dark red and purple-tinted Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red Blend has 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 mouthfeel. The flavours of Turkish delight and dark chocolate from the Shiraz component makes this a very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot blend, great with rich seafood, pasta and light meat dishes.
