Cracka Review

At the price, this is a pretty impressive pussycat that shows plenty of Pinot Noir pizazz. It's a plush number that shows strawberries, blackberries and spiced plums on the nose, with just a whiff of dried roses. The palate is medium-bodied and surprisingly rich, with a nice bright core of red berries, a lick of earthy savouriness, gentle tannins, and a dry, juicy finish. Value plus is an understatement!

Winemaker's Notes

Blood red in colour with a lifted and expressive nose, bursting with aromas of bright perfume, ripe plums and dark berries. The palate is rich and supple with a core of sweetly fruited red berry and dark cherry flavours balanced by bright acidity. Notes of forest floor and smoky spice add complexity before fine tannins provide definition to the finish.

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
The marketing pitch for this wine is that it's the 'best French pinot noir, outside of Burgundy'. Nice line. It's grown in France's Aude Valley. Good quality wine too. Not deep or complex but really good to drink. Nice flavours of deli meat, nuts, juicy red fruit and clean acid. Nice line and flow. Appropriate tannin. Like it. Bistro-au-go-go.

The marketing pitch for this wine is that it's the 'best French pinot noir, outside of Burgundy'. Nice line. It's grown in France's Aude Valley. Good quality wine too. If we were running a bistro we'd be clambering for this. It has lots of personality for the price. It's got good weight, some dry cherry character, impressive tannin and various notes of earth and mineral and malt. An excellent combination of substance and drinkability. A light-bodied red wine, with style - and isn't that just the ticket on a nice spring day.
