Cracka Review

Appearance: At bottling the wine was very pale with light green tints. With time we expect that it will develop some pale gold hints.

Nose: Pure and fresh, with hints of citrus and peach.

Palate: Medium bodied and zesty. This wine has a brilliant acid line and this gives the palate real length.

Food: Perfect with seafood, chicken and paella.

Cellaring: Albariño does not seem to require long cellaring. We expect that this wine will drink well on release and into the medium term.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Attractively scented, medium-bodied wine with vibrant, ripe, peach and pear flavours, slightly spicy and woven with fresh acidity. Tight, ageworthy wine, partly (15 per cent) barrel-fermented.
March/April 2013
WINESTATE (2011 Vintage) says
A lovely lifted sweet fruity nose showing a floral edge. Lively and zesty on the palate with great balance, good mouthfeel and tight acid.
Winestate Magazine, Mar/Apr 2012
Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Recommended for early drinking, the debut 2011 vintage has an inviting, aromatic bouquet, hinting of herbs and spices. A fresh, medium-bodied dry wine (4 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is citrusy and gently spicy, refreshing and moderately characterful. Promising, rather than memorable. Only 250 bottles were made.
