Reviews of All Wines in this Mixed Case

2008 Sheer Drop Wines Merlot

RRP: $24.00
3 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
Sheer Drop are located in Bendigo, a region perhaps better known for its gold mining (and banking, it is the home of Bendigo bank after all). It's a nice connotation with this rich Merlot actually, drawn from the warm 2008 vintage and glowing with plush plummy fruit. A Merlot with guts!
Cracka Wine Rating
Winemaker's Note
This full bodied merlot shows bright, ruby purple colour with generous aromas of blackcurrent, spicy plum and toasty new oak. A finely structured wine of considerable length.

2008 Sheer Drop Wines Cabernet Sauvignon

RRP: $24.00
3 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
Bendigo is normally all about Shiraz. Shiraz Shiraz Shiraz. Everywhere Shiraz. Yet the rich red dirt of Bendigo's vineyards is also a pretty handy place to make full bodied Cabernet as this chunky red attests too. It's hardly a beast but it does have plenty of dark chocolate flavours.
Cracka Wine Rating
Winemaker's Note
This rich cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits true varietal characters and distinctive aromas of mulberry and vanillin new oak. The palate shows generous fruit and a concentrated finish.

2009 Sheer Drop Wines Pinot Grigio

RRP: $22.00
3 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
The secret to Pinot Grigio is about clean flavours and texture, both of which this Sheer Drop ticks off. Perhaps a little one dimensional perhaps but a crisp 'no thought required' white wine.
Cracka Wine Rating
Winemaker's Note
Brilliant straw-yellow colour and vinous, lightly fruity aromas typical of the style: a clean and textured wine with flavours of almonds, a creamy mid palate and a fresh zippy finish.

2008 Sheer Drop Wines Chardonnay

RRP: $22.00
3 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
Picked early to make for a fresher and more vibrant wine, this is peachy and tropical Chardonnay with loads of fruit yet also tight and contained through the finish. Nicely contained, easy Chardonnay
Cracka Wine Rating
Winemaker's Note
Afresh wine exhibiting aromas of nectarine and tropical fruits. Flavours of ripe peach and yeasty lees are supported by a rich and textured mid-palate, balanced by a fresh citrus finish.
