Cracka Review

If you like your Shiraz on the more elegant style, get stuck into this little Hunter Gem. It has layers of earthy, blackberry fruits on a mid weight supple palate. It screams for lamb!

Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker Rauri Donkin has chosen only the finest parcels of fruit identified within select Hunter Valley vineyards to craft a premium wine of regional style and intensity of flavour.

This Shiraz delivery intense aromas of red and dark cherry fruits, with hints of liquorice spice and floral perfume. The palate is rich and generous with an abundance of bright forest fruits, interlaced with Christmas cake spices and subtle oak flavours. The structured tannins provide the backbone of this Shiraz - combined with supple acidity it is a wine that can confidently be cellared for five to ten years.

Appearance: Plum red, with a bright red hue.

Nose: Intense aromas of red forest fruits and dark cherry. Floral overtones with vanilla and Christmas spice mix.

Palate: The palate is generous and is highlighted by soft bright red fruits, with a dark blackberry backbone. The acid intermingles seamlessly with the tight taught tannin and fruit giving a powerful muscular structure and length to the wine.

Food: Scotch Fillet (Medium Rare).

Cellaring: 5-10 years.

Alcohol: 13%

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Bright cherry red wine with a vibrant and crisp, gamey nose and an elegant savoury palate still quite tannic at the moment, with a drying finish.
