Credaro 1000 Crowns Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


Both parcels used here were grown at Credaro situated in the Wilyabrup sub-region, with high density planting and the Houghton clone. Sixteen months maturation in French oak, 35% of which is new. Deep, blood red hue here. The nose offers a wonderful array of flavours – smoked meats, dry herbs, cherries, spices and blackcurrants. This is very much in the earthy, savoury style. It also has the slightly gravelly tannins which can be characteristic of top Margaret River Cabernet. Good power and focus on show underpinned by a firm structure with length. The palate sees more dark berry notes emerging. Attractive now but this will look so much better in a year or two. The score might seem a tad harsh, but it will be considerably higher in a few years. One for the cellar.
