Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

The native goose on the label is not so much a food pairing suggestion with this wine (although it might work). But no, each year a particular breed of geese migrate and land in the vineyards of Cape Barren in the McLaren Vale. Brian Light is a highly awarded winemaker who has been turning out the goods since the mid-seventies. It’s layered with citrus, peach and other stone fruit as well as notes of cashew and some fine, natural acids. This is a fine food wine that’s suited to seafood as well as poultry dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Pale, but vibrant green and fresh

Aroma: Elegant herbaceous nose, with hints of Nashi pear, cashew and lime juice

Palate: A very zesty palate with good acidity crunch, and showing fruit flavours of pear and peach pith, contributing to a soft, round and mouth-filling palate showing lemon curd creaminess from 30% of the wine having undergone Malo-Lactic Fermentation. The wine displays excellent balance and restrained high quality oak

Cellaring: 3 - 5 years

Alc/vol: 13.2%
