Cracka Review

As people search for the healthiest foods, it’s only natural that the wine they drink should be as pure as possible too. This wine is made using biodynamic principles and uses less sulphur dioxide than most other wines. It’s good to see more of these wines on the market and Botolobar have been championing organics for decades, being the very first vineyard of its kind in the country. Enjoy its nose of florals and spice with a signature of sweet berries and some cinnamon complexity.

Aroma
Roses with cedar and spice.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Deep crimson hue; this is a vibrant and juicy young wine, with fresh blackberry, spice and a splash of tar on display; medium-bodied and best enjoyed in the full flush of youth.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Fresh mulberry and black pepper bouquet; vibrant and juicy, if a little simple, certainly pleasant, spicy and interesting.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
So far, good purple hue; a rich, slightly rustic, full-bodied wine with abundant fruit, the strong tannins providing a de facto anti-oxidation defence.

Fresh raspberry and cherry fruit aromas, a touch of blackberry joining the party on the palate; well made, and protected by the
