About The Wine
There are a few names associated with Australia's best Rieslings, Crawford River is right at the top of that list.
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 2018 vintage is 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!
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.
