Cracka Review

Sourced mainly from the biodynamic Retief family vineyard in Gundagai, this is a pretty serious wine for the price - an earthen, savoury grown up red wine in a cool medium bodied style. The sort of wine that you pull out at dinner parties for someone who knows their wines. All it really needs now is a few years in the cellar.

Winemaker's Notes

The beauty about the Bordeaux-style blend is that there is not one part of the palate that dominates. There are no disjointed peaks and troughs, only a continuous evolution of flavour that finishes strong yet elegant.

The nose is predominatly mulberry and dark chocolate with some spice and savoury characters. The red fruits take control of the palate, with lighter rhubarb / violet notes mixing with deeper cigar tobacco and a rich earthiness which evolves into a long, lingering finish.
