Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

From the very well rated 2013 Hunter vintage, this Reserve Shiraz is sourced from the Ben Braggie Vineyard in Baerami and shows a lovely balance between the ripe fruit flavours and the elegant savoury elements.

Quality oak here, and it shows. Cracking stuff at around the $25 mark.
