Personalised Credaro Kinship Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 14% 750ml
Patrick Eckel-95 points, A glossy deep red in the glass with a nose of cassis that is supported by earth, graphite and some background spice. The palate enjoys the impact of new french oak in terms of a cedary, svelte influence to drying blackberry fruit. Tannins have a dark chocolate edge and savoury impact that underwrites plenty of future development. Hard to go wrong with this wine at $35 for both short and longer term enjoyment.
The Credaro family have a distinguished heritage in Western Australia as a pioneering family who settled in northern Margaret River in 1922. The family had humble beginnings within the agriculture and timber industries, building bridges for the first railways and major roads in the region. Cesar Credaro left Northern Italy for a new start in 1921 and met his brother Olympio at Fremantle Port after a three month voyage. The family have now been commercially involved in the wine industry since the 1980′s when their first plantings were established, supplying other established wineries. Robert and Phyllis Credaro, the 3rd generation of the family, created the Credaro wine brand in 2009. They wanted to create more diversity to the estate, moving from farming and growing grapes to controlling the family’s destiny by creating a long term future with a family wine brand. Today, the estate is managed by the third and fourth generations of the Credaro family. This encompasses 140 hectares of vines over seven separate vineyards across the Margaret River region. The Credaro family produce all of their own wines, in their 1200-tonne winery in Northern Margaret River, which was built in 2003.
