Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red 2005
|A medium bodied colour but with lovely vibrant purple hues. Lifted red berry cabernet fruit aromas. Background sweet oak adds to the arresting bouquet. These fruit characters follow through to the palate along with sweet Merlot and dark cherry Shiraz flavours. Again low oak impact but ripe fruit tannins provide length and balance. A drink now style. A drink now style that will further soften with medium term bottle maturation. Excellent fruit flavours and balance being the features that will be maintained under the screw cap packaging.
|Rich seafoods, pasta and light meat dishes.
