Overview

The palate is full and long with exceptional Cabernet fruit characters.Herb and wild berries coupled with subtle oak and a ripe fruit finish create a mouth filling pleasure. The tannins are tight as a young wine but will soften as the wine matures. This is a full-bodied red wine with still sufficient elegance to allow the complexities of the wine to come through.

Expert Reviews

Krug is a legendary non-vintage (they call it multi-vintage) Champagne, perhaps the ultimate expression of complexity in the entire region. Using oak in production, it carries a wealth of woody spice and toasty complexity. The palate's immensely powerful and precise, with a sizzling acid backbone. One of the few NV Champagne's that I can recommend as a\ cellaring prospect too. Rating 96 - Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2011

Winemaking Note

The hard podsolic clays and thirty-five year old grapevines of Vere Vineyard combine to produce extremely low grape yields. As a result, the wines generally exhibit intense flavours with great varietal definition. The 2006 vintage of Cabernet was affected by drought which kept the vines very low yielding and as a result this wine has lots of ripe tannin coupled with great varietal flavours. After cool fermentation using aromatic yeast the wine was placed into new American oak barriques. It stayed in these for eight months prior to egg fining and filtration. The wine was bottled in October 2008.
