Cracka Review

OK, so basically what we have here is a fortified dessert wine made from muscat a petit grains - not unlike Muscat de Beaumes de Venise. It weighs in at around 17% alcohol, and shows musk florals, butterscotch and caramel on the nose, with a hint of orange rind. The palate is sweet and warm, with nutty and raison flavours, smooth acidity, and some dryness to the finish. It's not a syrupy style, and would be great with apple crumble and custard.

Winemaker's Notes

It has a very elegant and beautiful colour, a delicate body and an excellent balance between the sweetness and acidity. It's a wine with a fabulous aroma and excellent taste.

It should be served fresh and can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with fruit pies and cream cheeses.
