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. Fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks.
We’re quite proud to introduce this wine, the 28th 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 52% Sauvignon Blanc and 48% Semillon. Three regions make up the blend being Cowra 50%, Orange 30% and Hunter Valley 20%.
This wine also highlights our desire for lower alcohol and weighs in at 12.0% and with plenty of zesty fruit lift.
A perfect Summer drink to pair 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.
An easy drinking wine to chill and enjoy this summer.
