...eminently approachable and it goes with a range of foods. Superb.
About The Wine
All hail the Thomsons of Henty, the sheep farmers who pioneered Riesling in western Victoria, and who continue to release glowingly brilliant expressions of the noble white grape.
And a double hail! They routinely release aged examples direct from the cellar, in small amounts of course, but they are blindingly good.
The 2014 is ageing wonderfully, with a concentrated palate of yellow fruit, preserved lemons and some aged toasty flavours. This is a no kero-zone though!
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.
