Winemaker's Notes

Though 2003 was a drought year across most of Australia's regions, Brokenwood's careful handling ensured ease of drinking and savory characters, which are the hallmarks of the Cricket Pitch Red. Mostly vinomatic fermenters used, after two to three day cold soak prior to ferment. Oak regime is mainly one to three-year-old American and French oak barriques for up to 18 months.

Aromas of red cherry and spice with earthy edges. Mid-weight palate with some Cabernet Sauvignon upfront that leads to soft Shiraz richness. The oak regime is mainly older American and French so has limited impact, although some vanillan on both nose and palate, with a long, sweet finish.

Has a drink-now style that will further soften with medium-term bottle maturation. Pair with rich seafood, pasta and light, meat dishes.
