Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red 2018
Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red 2018 begins with superb aromas from 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.
In 1970, Brokenwood Wines purchased land set to become a cricket ground. Although they thoroughly enjoy cricket, grapes were planted instead.
