Cracka Review

Coming atchya from Geelong in Victoria is this charmer of a chardy that will hit the spot for people looking for a little richness in their whites. It's a dry, oaked charonnay that shows stone fruits, yellow citrus, toast and dairy smells on the nose, whilst the palate is more medium-bodied and quite lush, with peach and lemon flavours, licks of nutty oak, poised acidity, and a smooth, bright, lingering finish. This could stand up to a pork dish.

Winemaker's Notes

Similar in flavour to the Curlewis but the elegance is replaced by more fruit. The colour is bright straw yellow & green. Aromas of nectarine & tangy grapefruit with some barrel ferment notes on the bouquet.

There are flavours and textures of white peach, nectarine & hazelnut with perfectly integrated oak. A well balanced flavoursome palate that glides across the tongue.

Restrained regional fruit style quite oaky on release although the fruit is solid and the weight is there. The 2003 shows that time will help create a very good wine.

Very developed colour; nutty toasty over-tones to stone fruit; acidity tightens the finish.

A typically complex and textured wine from this maker; medium-bodied, with creamy/nutty/figgy overtones to gentle nectarine fruit; good balance.
