Cracka Review

We've found another refreshing white to add to the fridge this summer. Lemon and lime notes lead onto a crisp and fresh finish. It's very easy to guzzle this down on a hot day, grab a case today!

Winemaker's Notes

Hunter Valley Reserve Fume wine is made from our Hayshed Block Semillon and McCormick’s Sauvignon Blanc. Waxy, lactose note with lemon and lemongrass. A gentle smokiness.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
A semillon/sauvignon blanc blend barrel-fermented in used French oak, the sauvignon blanc playing a nominal role obviously having been picked at a low baume level; this is all about lemony/grassy fruit and the textural contribution of the barrel ferment. The total package works very well, and is very good value with some years to go if you wish to see how it builds with age - as it will.
