  • TASTING NOTE: Beautiful lifted, spiced blue fruits and baked red fruit are the primary forces here. Edges of liquorice and spice couple with dried herbs, bay and hints of blackberry leaf combine to create a lovely layered, complex palate.  The tannins are soft and fine and interlaced throughout the long palate.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The fruit for this wine is sourced from the original Crawford River vines, planted in the mid 1970’s. The vineyard lies at the alluvial edge of a volcanic lava flow. Its roots are in a complex, mineral-rich soil base. Gravelly, friable, basalt loam overlays permeable clay which in turn lies above a limestone base created by an ancient, risen seabed. This wine was destemmed only and had 5-7 days cold soak on skins prior to natural fermentation in open fermenters. Hand plunged during moderate temperature fermentation. Pressed when dry and settled in tank for around 8 weeks before barrelling down. 12 months in mostly old, 100% French Oak, less than 10% new. No acid addition. Not 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.
