Killara Estate Yarra Valley Cabernet Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

From a great year in the Yarra Valley comes this smooth, sultry minx that is just waiting to satisfy your thirst. She will tempt you with smells of dark berries, capsicum and fleshy plums on the nose, with just the mearest hint of soft spice. She will then seduce you with her silky, soft palate of plummy flavours, softening tannins, and rich, juicy finish. You won't be able to resist her charms!

Winemaker's Notes

This wine shows the class of these varieties in the Yarra Valley, with blackberry, cassis and roasted peppers on the palate. The structure is fine and soft with the long, clean acidity characteristic of a Cabernet dominant wine. The plummy Merlot provides a fullness and softness leaving a smooth finish.

Crimson-purple; the bouquet is fragrant, with spicy elements to the blackcurrant and plum aromas; the medium-bodied palate has firm mouthfeel, the effect enhanced by roasted pepper on both bouquet and palate, in turn offset by red fruit flavours.
