  • TASTING NOTE:  This wine leads with crushed rock and chalky minerality. Following on the nose is citrus, fruit and florals. Layers of kafir lime, white nectarine and apple blossom. The palate is textured and complex with the minerality continuing on the palate which is a hallmark of this site. The fruit is layered and intense with nashi pear, white nectarine and grapefruit with soft acidity lending incredible length to finish. 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The fruit for this wine is sourced from the original Crawford River vines. In 1975/6 the first Riesling blocks were planted on two gentle ridges lying side by side. Sharing a similar NNW aspect and very similar soil composition, both blocks have a dominance of gravelly, ironstone-rich, free draining clay loam. A further block planted in 1977 tends to a WNW aspect, has less gravel, more sandy loam, and closer proximity to its limestone base. The combined expression of these soils produces wines that are delicate, showing white florals aromatically and layers of mineral, textural intensity throughout the palate. All of Crawford River's Riesling clones are G198.  The fruit is carefully hand harvested and taken to the winery when flavours are at a peak. This  wine is made with a large percentage of whole-bunch pressed fruit, along with some crushed fruit.  A short, natural settle in tank preceded spontaneous fermentation with naturally occurring yeasts. After fermentation, the wine spent around 5 weeks on lees prior to racking, sulphur addition and blending. Cold stabilised. Not fined.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Crawford River was established by John and Catherine Thomson in 1975 in the then relatively unknown region of far South-West Victoria, which is now known as the Henty GI. Planted with Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon the cool, southerly latitude together with the maritime influence, complex soil structure and favourable micro-climate, create a terroir which has justified the initial vision. A true family affair, John has now handed over the wine making reigns to his daughter Belinda, and her sister Fiona runs the business side of the winery. While not certified organic, the vineyards are managed without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides and are sustained with organic composts and cane mulch. Crawford River producer beautiful cool climate wines, with their Riesling being one of Australia's most anticipated annual releases.
