Cracka Review

The gold rush may have been the thing that brought the crowds flocking to Bendigo, but now the crowds come flocking for the wines that are a historic part Victoria’s rich tapestry of vineyards. Acclaimed winemaker Sergio Carlei makes these impressive wines and they are further improved with food. Real Cabernet character here with black fruits and earth, it’s complexed on the palate with structured tannins and ripe fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

Turners Crossing Cabernet combines the rich flavour profile typically found in Bendigo reds with elegant varietal characters and a refined, harmonious structure.

A little raw and unsophisticated, but likely to age slowly. Slightly baked aromas of dark plums, currants and cedar/chocolate oak precede a juicy, forward palate whose intense presence of dark berry and plum-like flavour oyerlies an assertive, drying and powdery backbone. It finished with genuine length of fruit and a lingering astringency.

The ripeness and spice here almost suggest this has had a dose of shiraz along the way. Serge Carlei's trademark tawny edges and nutty oak are written across the top of juicy plums and dark berry fruits. A fine swathe of ripe, charming tannins give life to long, sweeping flavour

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Classy medium- to full-bodied cabernet, with a seamless marriage of black currant fruit and earthy nuances, the texture excellent and the palate long.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
A meaty, slightly overcooked and dehydrated cabernet whose spicy, baked earth aromas of plums, currants, stonefruit and cedar/vanilla oak precede a firm palate with an intense presence of dark, forward and fully ripened fruit backed by a drying undercarriage of astringent tannin.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied, with a slightly savoury/earthy twist to the core of firm blackcurrant fruit; good tannin and oak management.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Once again, excellent colour; medium- to full-bodied, firm blackcurrant/cassis fruit and firm but controlled tannins in support. Simply needs another 5 years.
