Overview

The Corker

The Corker label was created to capture the spirit of Australia. Slightly irreverent, casual and easy-going can as easily describe this label as Australians themselves. The wine cork image, branded ‘The Corker’ playfully suggests a wine of good quality, yet one that doesn’t take itself too seriously. And so they are. Fresh, honest, youthful and exuberant wines that reflect the grape variety and the country they come from.

This fortified wine is a blend of vintages from 1999 to 2004. The selected years produced conditions in which grapes were able to ripen to exceptional levels. The grapes for this wine were picked well after those used for still dry wine production. Ripeness level of 15.0 degrees Baume and above, were achieved ensuring massive concentration and structure were incorporated into the wine.

Palate

Soft and smooth on the palate it offers layers of plum, mulberry and licorice. The mouthfeel is rich, juicy and lingering. This wine will develop further complexity in the bottle.
