2018 Cricket Pitch White Image

2018 Cricket Pitch White

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

New South Wales

Great colour on release, lots of green tints in this young and easy drinking wine. Lifted tropical Sauvignon Blanc aromas and citrus/melon notes. Lovely soft round entry on the palate and even at 12.5% there is plenty of fruit richness. Grapefruit flavours and a zesty acidity give a pleasing finish to the wine. A perfect summer drink and great with a wide range of food.

Wine Profile
Vinification
As the wine is 94% from New South Wales, we are fortunate enough to be able to process the grapes here in the Hunter Valley, enabling an extra level of winemaker attention. This ensures the delicate grape aromas are preserved. Fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks.
Winemaker Comments
We’re quite proud to introduce this wine, the 29th 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 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon. Several regions make up this blend being Cowra 57%, Orange 18%, Tumbarumba 16% and Hunter Valley 9%. This wine also highlights our desire for lower alcohol and weighs in at 12.5% and with plenty of zesty fruit lift.
Food Pairing
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.
Drink
An easy drinking wine to chill and enjoy this summer.
