Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red 2016 ~ (Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Shiraz)

Tasting Notes

Medium colour and density. Aromas of red cherry, spice and sweet oak. Mid-weight palate with Cabernet Sauvignon cedar up front leading to soft Shiraz richness. Some vanillin on both nose and palate with a long sweet finish. Excellent fruit flavours and balance being the features that will be maintained under the screw cap packaging.


Mostly vinomatic fermenters used, after 2-3 day cold soak prior to ferment. Oak regime is mainly 1-3 year old American and French oak barriques, up to 18 months.


Rich seafood, pasta and light meat dishes.


A drink now style that will further soften with medium term bottle maturation.
