2016 Cricket Pitch White

2016 Cricket Pitch White

New South Wales

Great colour on release, lots of green tints in this young and easy drinking wine. With the cool, damp start to vintage 2016 the alcohol is more like that of a Hunter Valley Semillon at 11.5%, but with plenty of lifted tropical fruit aromas. Some melon and bees wax notes from the Semillon to go with the herbal/tropical Sauvignon Blanc. Citrus flavours on the palate and a zesty finish.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Fruit outside the Hunter Valley is processed to the primary juice stage before transport to the winery in the Hunter Valley for fermentation and blending. This ensures the delicate grape and fruit aromas are preserved. A small percentage (approximately 5%) of this wine was fermented in barrel.
Winemaker Comments
We’re quite proud to introduce this wine as it is the 26th 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 51% Sauvignon Blanc and 49% Semillon. Three regions make up the blend being Cowra 89%, Orange 6% and Hunter Valley 5%. This wine also highlights our desire for lower alcohol and weighs in at 11.5% and with plenty of zesty fruit lift.
Food Pairing
A perfect Summer drink great with a wide range of foods. Enjoy with a dozen freshly shucked oysters and a whole baked barramundi for lunch or a spicy Asian laksa for dinner.
Drink
An easy drinking wine to chill and enjoy this summer.
