2015 Cricket Pitch Red

2015 Cricket Pitch Red

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot

South Eastern Australia

Excellent colour and mid-density. Being 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Shiraz it is more of the classic Aussie blend Cabernet/Shiraz. Lifted dark fruit and cedar notes on the nose. A rich mouth feel from the McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Fine tannins with the oak very much in the background ensuring great drinkability.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Mostly vinomatic fermenters used, after 2-3 day cold soak prior to ferment. This wine is matured in French oak up to 18 months with a small percentage being in new oak barrels.
Winemaker Comments
The 25th vintage of Cricket Pitch Red (not counting the 1986) is both multi-varietal and multi-regional. Nearly 60% of fruit was from NSW with Gundagai and Central Ranges providing the bulk. Both regions enjoyed trouble free vintages. The remaining 40% is split equally between McLaren Vale and Beechworth. A very hot and short vintage in McLaren Vale, which meant keeping the water up to the vines. Beechworth had a near perfect vintage. Somewhat of a cliché but the combination of all really does over deliver in quality, appropriate being our 25th release.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with rich seafood, pasta and light meat dishes.
Drink
A drink now style that will further soften with medium term bottle maturation.
