Mixed White & Red Dozen
2 bottles of each of the below wines;
2022 Cricket Pitch White, Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon
Lovely pale yellow colour with green tints. Citrus pith and florals on the nose rather than big tropical notes. Very appealing. Initial flavours of citrus and melon, light cool palate at 11.55 alcohol. Grapefruit, finger lime and a zesty acidity adds to the structure. A perfect summer drink paired with a wide range of food.
2023 Semillon, Hunter Valley, NSW
Vibrant in colour – a touch more than usual due to the sunshine. Lovely florals and lemon grass aromas. Mouth filling flavours of pear and lemon pith balancing the zesty acid backbone. The aromas and fruit weight belie the 10.8% alcohol and reconfirms that the Hunter Valley produces fruit at optimal ripeness and much lower sugar levels.
2022 Chardonnay, VIC & NSW
Perfect, pale green colour and lifted grapefruit aromas. The French oak sits nicely with the fine, juicy citrus flavours on the palate accompanied by subtle bran meal. The driving force of this wine is the acidity – long and pure. More than three quarters from Beechworth, the balance being from a combination of the Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and Orange.
2023 Sangiovese, Beechworth, VIC
Vibrant young colours and medium density. Very fragrant and appealing nose of red/maraschino cherry aromas. The background shows sweet oak, although the wine was not in any new barrels. Bright, savoury Sangiovese fruit on the palate with juicy acidity. Typical drying tannins and red spice/ginger notes with a great finish. Immensely enjoyable.
2021 Cricket Pitch Red, Cabernet Sauvignon/ Shiraz/ Merlot
Superb aromas with lifted Cabernet fruit and background vanillin oak. The dark Christmas cake flavours from the McLaren Vale component along with the ripe tannins adds great length and persistence to the finish. Cabernet is not 'dense' in terms of colour but this wine has lovely purple hues - perfect 3 years on release. Simply one of the best Cricket Pitch reds.
2021 Area Blend Shiraz, SA, NSW & VIC
The aromas are red to dark fruit, dark cherry and plum, followed by slight choc-mint notes. A perfect colour with deep red and purple hues. A full-bodied style at 14% alcohol is nicely weighted in that the tannins are fine and ripe and the oak perfectly nuanced. Spiced fruit characters on the finish give this wine a long after taste.
