Cracka Review

This is a great, easy drinking, medium-bodied red that will exceed your expectations at the price, especially of you have a glass with a juicy steak sandwich! Aromas of raspberries and red currants flood the nose and palate, along with subtle licks of tobacco. It's all helped along by friendly tannins, bright acidity, and an appealing spicy finish. Drink tonight, or stick some bottles away for those unexpected guests.

Winemaker's Notes

This fruit driven blend of Cabernet franc, Merlot and Malbec gives a balance and complexity that allows for immediate appeal. 

Appearance: Vibrant purple/red highlights.

Nose: Fresh lifted red current and plums with a hint of oak.

Palate: A soft berry driven palate is complemented with elegant yet ripe tannin and juicy length. There are underlying hints of spice with a nice complexity and structure.

Cellaring: With age each of these parcels of wine will contribute and change to provide a wine that will create interest and pleasurable drinking over the next 5 to 7 years.

Grape Variety: Cabernet Franc 50% Merlot 26% Malbec 24%

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Bright colour; while only light-to-medium-bodied, and with no pretensions to glory, this comprehensively over-delivers, with its bright, flavoursome cascade of red fruits effortlessly captured in the bottle, then the glass. I wouldnÍt quarrel with anyone who polished off their bottles quickly, but it will probably be equally good in another 5 years.
