Kerrigan + Berry Mt Barker Margaret River Cabernet Sauv

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This cab sav from Kerrigan + Berry is a ripper! It displays ripe cassis, mulberry, dried tobacco leaf, choc-mint and toasted cedar on the nose that tempts the senses. The palate is amazingly rich and powerful, with compact flavours of black currants, dark plums and raspberries, with licks of chocolate, a solid line of fine tannins, and a cassis and spice finish that just keeps going. A cracking wine that will cellar for a decade!

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Dense blood red appearance with a black heart.

Nose: The wine displays ripe berry aromas of great intensity from the Margaret River fruit with underlying dusty and earthy characters typical of Great Southern Cabernet Sauvignon.

Palate: There is depth to the nose indicating there are reserves of complex aromas yet to develop and be exhibited in the wine. The palate is substantial with an intense and full flavour profile and ripe and fleshy sweet fruits fill the mid palate with long palate extension driven by ripe and mature tannin. The mouth feel is robust but the tannins are smooth.

Cellaring: This is a strong wine with ripe tannin and strong fruit depth, indicating it will benefit from careful cellaring. The expectation is that the wine would benefit from 10 years' maturation.
