The Credaro family have been making wine in the Margaret River Region since great grandfather Cesare Credaro planted his first Fragola vines in 1922. Coming from Italy on a ticket sponsored by his brother Olympio, it was an act of kinship that brought him to Western Australia, where the family have been farming and raising families on ever since. Cesare purchased a parcel of land in Carbanup for 1000 Crowns, and with his broadaxe and a jersey cow, set about making a livelihood in the fertile soil and cool coastal climate the region is famous for.
Robert Credaro is Cesare’s grandson. From a youth playing cricket on Bussell Highway, and helping his father Albert tend the livestock and produce from an early age, Robert is now taking a small step back while still having a firm hand on the operations at large. Robert and wife Phyllis’ eldest son Matt is the face of the brand and works closely with brother Chris to oversee the vineyards and winemaking, driving the Credaro wine brand into the next century.
A blend of two unique parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown at Credaro. Both batches come from high-density planting Cabernet Sauvignon. Houghton Clone adds an elegance and true Margaret River characters, whilst Clone 337 adds brightness and density.
Both wines were put to barrel for MLF and were racked periodically during their 16-month maturation period. The oak is 100% French, of which 40% were new. Minimal intervention to the wine post blending allows the true characteristics of Margaret River Cabernet to shine through.
Rich, violets, blue fruit aromas, milk chocolate and cedar spice. An elegant and structured palate with lovely blue fruits with violet brightness. Rich graphite acid line with a moorish oak tannin drive brings mid palate density.
Fruit vibrancy and dry herb prettiness pushes through the palate for a plush salivating finish.
Can be enjoyed immediately with a few hours decanting or enjoyed over the next 20+ years with careful cellaring.
