Brokenwood Cricket Pitch 2011

Brokenwood's entry level white. Some skillful blending has played its part here with the fruit coming from a multitude of vineyards.

A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The Sauvignon Blanc coming from Cowra, Orange, King Valley and McLaren Vale whilst the Semillon makes it way from the Hunter Valley and Cowra.

A portion of the wine is barrel fermented in French oak.

After all this work, you'd hope it would taste good. And it does. An easy drinking style crisp white wine.

Aromas of lychee, melon, dried pineapple and passion fruit provide a platform for a mouth filling palate with good fruit. Plenty of concentration on the mid palate with a little texture thanks to the barrel work.

Nothing flash. Just a good go-to drink. Drink icy cold. It'll be sure to cool you down.

Widely available and often cheaper than the stated RRP ($20).
