Description

As well as rereleasing wines ready for drinking straight away, the Thomson family at Crawford River also keep back wines to release for the first time, with considerable age./p>

This offering of their Reserve Riesling is truly an outstanding one. Toasty nuttiness mingles with everything you know and love about Riesling - citrus, mouth-watering acidity, and a refreshing air of lightness. It just oozes class, and shows off a concentrated velvet red carpet of a palate.

It's definitely something that can make any occasion extra-special.

There is, simultaneously, a youthful and mature element to this wine which is immediately present. A toasted, nutty element, often synonymous with the evolution of Crawford River Rieslings adds great depth and complexity. These notes are complimented with bright citrus, creating a lightness to the concentrated fruit profile. Texture is a defining feature throughout the wine, along with the purity of fruit and persistence that are hallmarks of these very special wines.

96 Points - "Concentration and power with grace and freshness. You see the maturity in elements of honeycomb and brown lime notes, a bit of peanut brittle and hazelnut in the mix, but green lime, green apple and green mango are persuasive, and the texture has this incredible chalky edge that brings forth max drinkability and a great reset of the palate after each sip. It's a wine with its plumage on show, a fine, excellent and complex thing in the glass. Outstanding release - and more to go." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

97 Points - "Still incredibly youthful and fine, with little or no colour development. The delicately scented bouquet is matched with a tightly furled palate, with grapefruit zest and acidity made to precise measure." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Crawford River

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.

Belinda and John Thomson - Henty, VIC Crawford River

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
