About

Crawford River has always marched to the beat of its own drum. While Riesling is what the Thomsons are best known for, this unique rosé has a cult following of its own.

Unlike the growing trend to make rosé from Mediterranean varieties like Grenache, Sangiovese and Tempranillo, this comes from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. There aren’t many Cabernet-based rosés around these days, but this just works.

The Thomsons explain that this is “made from the ground up” to be a serious, dry, textural rosé. Sounds obvious, but the fact still remains that so many Aussie rosés are made as an afterthought from left-over, declassified fruit. Crawford River’s is a lovely Rosé - very unique in style - and a no-brainer for the warmer months.

What It Tastes Like

“Pretty, floral-meets-raspberry scents. Kind of simple in perfume, but enticing. Feels like a riesling lovers rose. Racy, squeaky-textured, barely there red fruits, citrussy acidity underlying. All of it at an even, brisk pace. It’s very refreshing and shows plenty of lean, appealing red fruit character. Tasty stuff.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
