    cracka review

    This wine is packing a punch! It's not quite monstrous, but it has enough flavour to sink a ship... a large ship... a frigate. Chocolate, mocha, a bit of vanillin, this is pure Italian power. Ripping stuff with a bit of lamb ragu, or grilled red meats. Try some, and then come back for more soon. It's one to have in the rack at all times!

    Gary Walsh (2015 Vintage) says
    It’s a big mouthful of wine, rich in fruit and oak, so if you’re maybe a Barossa fan, looking for a little Italian adventure, this will serve you well. Dark chocolate, liquorice, blackberry and dark cherry, spicy oak laid on. Firm grainy tannin, almost sticky to feel, and a savoury dried herb and earth finish. Bold but good.

    winemaker's notes

    Ruby red in colour, full and intense. The nose reveals intense sensations of red fruit, spices and red flowers. The palate is warm, full, soft and balanced, with red fruit return; long finish.

    Excellent with pasta dishes with sauce, roast and game or well matured cheeses.
