Cracka Review

From the good people of Haselgrove comes this bright and breezy savvy guarenteed to quench your thirst and instantly satisfy. Lots of citrus and fresh herbs bounce out of the glass and up the nasal passages, whilst the palate is light and zippy with brisk acidity, and a citrus fruity finish. No need for food, just chill it down and enjoy now.

Winemaker's Notes

Light straw colour, distinct green hues, nose; lifted varietal characters gooseberry, lime and herb,lovely complexity & freshness. Palate clean, crisp acid with full fruit & complex. Drink it now but short term cellaring will add further complexity and varietal definition.

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
Quite sweet, young candied floral smells here, building through to tropical fruits, papaya and banana, some gooseberry too. The palate brings a straightforward shot of lime and green melon flavour, there's a bit of grip through the back, and a nectarine skin finish.

Clean, fresh mineral and grass aromas; lively flavours, introducing citrus and asparagus; good for the vintage.

A bright, light lemon-and-lime style that has some fine crisp citrusy appeal, just faint tropical fruits - the restraint refreshing. The palate has tart, lemon citrus flavour and a little grip through the finish; smart enough for now.

Light straw-green; an expressive bouquet with citrus and gooseberry; the flavours of the light- to medium-bodied palate track the bouquet, and have good length.
