About The Wine
It says a lot about a winery when they hide their most prized fruit for more than a decade before they release it. It says they care when their wine is enjoyed and they care that the people enjoying it get to see it in its best light.
The first release of this wine was set down in the cellar by Crawford River in 1999. They are very, very selective about when they allocate fruit to the "Reserve" label - only the best will do.
Given the incredible pedigree of their Estate Riesling, it is hard to think that there would be a step above but there is. This is it.
The very best of this iconic Riesling producer with the maturity and gravitas that only comes with time.
truely in a class of its own amongst the Australian Riesling landscape, the Crawford River Reserve Riesling is a wine you need to try - at least once in your life.
About The Producer
Crawford River is very much a family operation. The talented Thomson clan have been producing wine from their beautiful home vineyard since 1985.
The Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc thrive on the estate, but it's Riesling that they are most famous for.
They produce a range of styles of varying ages that are outstanding. Many consider them as one of the country's premier producers of the noble variety.
These are wines of purity and elegance. Small-batch, family-owned, traditional winemaking and good, honest farming is at the core of everything Crawford River does.
