About

There are a few names associated with Australia's best Rieslings, Crawford River is right at the top of that list. Crawford River is very much a family operation, with the talented Thomson clan celebrating their 40 year anniversary in 2015. This 'Young Vine' example is designed to be fresh, pure and energetic, but with the vines now over 15 years of age there is plenty of depth and concentration there too. The 2016 vintage received 95 points from Mike Bennie, a classic release of the usual high standard from the Crawford River cellar. It is incredible to find such purity, such precision, such complexity in Riesling at this price. And with every year that passes, this 'Young Vine' offering becomes better value for money. Put simply, a delicious wine from an iconic Aussie Riesling producer!

What it Tastes Like

"Puff of smoke, wet slate, cool steel, squeeze of lime, rasp of ginger, snapped lemongrass – beautiful bouquet. Bitter lemon and tonic to taste. Zesty tug of acidity drags long through the juicy palate, finishes with a mouthwatering slightly herbal twist. Feels jolted alive with zinging mineral character, so thirst crushing and yet elegant and driven. It’s superb riesling." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
