The Fechner Vineyard is one of the few Eastern facing vineyards in Eden Valley. CRFT duo Candice and Frewin believe that this site is perfectly suited to making great Shiraz. The warm days and cool nights making for long ripening and excellent flavour intensity. This coupled with their sensitive, minimalist winemaking makes for a beautiful wine. They made only 120 dozen Shiraz from this vineyard in 2014. It has glorious shape and impeccable purity, a wine destined for great things in time. James Halliday awarded it 97 points making it the highest rated wine from CRFT to date.

What it Tastes Like

"Standard CRFT shiraz fermentation, except for the much later harvest date of 1 Mar and modest alcohol, 120 dozen made. Supple, yet complex, intense, yet rounded; savoury, yet deeply fruited. This has all the attributes of fine wine at its zenith. Yes, it's a great vineyard, and from the cooler Eden Valley, but Candice Helbig has coaxed every ounce of flavour from this medium-bodied wine, giving a sarcastic salute to those who think shiraz's life starts with 14.5% alcohol, and needs yet more to obtain balance - an attribute this wine has in spades. Drink now or in 30 years." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
