    cracka review

    It's not often that we get aged wine here at Cracka, with most of the vino that passes through the doors here at Cracka fitting into the 'brand-spanking new' category. But not today! Today, we've raided the cellar of a five-star rated boutique Margaret River winery and come up with a mighty tasty aged delight!

    This 2008 Mystery Margaret River Museum Release Cabernet Merlot comes from a vineyard east of the Margaret River township planted in the late 70s, and is deliberately made for long ageing.

    That ageworthiness shows, as back in 2014 Winestate magazine had a bottle submitted to their tastings and it was described as 'in excellent condition' with 'gentle oak and drying tannins'.

    Gary Walsh was also a fan, giving this 92 points and James Halliday gave this 91 points.

    That mellow, aged Cabernet style is the real appeal here, with a gentle complexity and savoury elegance that makes this glorious food wine purpose-built for a lamb roast.

    winemaker's notes

    Aromas of berry, dark chocolate and toast. The palate is medium-bodied with berry, chocolate and fine tannins.
