Cracka Review

Tuck's Ridge is one of the top wineries in the Mornington Peninsula, and when they turn out wines like this, it's easy to see why. It's a bright white stone fruit, lemon and melon wine that brings a twist of old charm butteriness and nuttiness to the party, along with hints of green apples and cream. It's all wrapped up in balanced acidity and a long, rich finish that will see this match well with poultry dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Light in colour that belies the aromatic presence and generous texture. Aromas of sliced pineapple, cinnamon cloves, cedar and ginger biscuits. A generous texture, creamy but toasty with subtle vanilla notes. The palate follows the nose - apple tart, burnt toffee with a broad spice-driven dry finish.

Alc/vol: 13.8%

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
In the mainstream of traditional Mornington Peninsula style, with toasty/creamy notes ex mlf contrasting with bright varietal fruit expression, citrus and stone fruit to the fore.

Bright, light straw-green; the fragrant, citrus-tinged bouquet leads into a bracingly fresh palate, with white peach and grapefruit the major players in the fruit orchestra; the French oak is totally integrated, the finish long and vibrant.

Bright light straw-green; a super-fragrant and complex bouquet, intense fruit and oak both in play, the palate with tremendous energy and drive, finishing with grapefruit-flavoured acidity.

Most attractive, fine grapefruit, melon and nectarine flavours; excellent balance, line and length; subtle barrel ferment oak inputs.Top gold medal Winewise '06.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; melon, stone fruit, citrus and mineral aromas intermingle with subtle oak on the bouquet; the palate has exceptional mouthfeel and weight, almost glossy, yet not heavy nor hot. A lovely, fruit-driven wine.
