About The Wine
Mark Whisson is one of the great grape-growers of the Adelaide Hills.
Whenever Candice and Frewin have a question about viticulture for thier vineyard, Mark is the first person they call.
The couple managed to get a small parcel of fruit from Mark in 2016, just enough to make a stand-alone wine that adds to their single vineyard Pinot Noir set. It's the lightest and boniest of their 2016s.
Boney, ethereal Pinot Noir of carm and personality.
The CRFT story is an exciting, and ambitious one.
Husband and wife team of Frewin Ries and Candice Helbig both gained extensive winemaking experience for large companies like Cloudy Bay (Frewin) and Hardys (Helbig), before launching into CRFT with the 2013 vintage.
They only produce tiny volumes of all their wines, and their philosophy is all about minimally interfered with single vineyard wines that truly express the different sub-regions of the Adelaide Hills.
They have purchased a vineyard in the Adelaide Hills and continue to work with trusted local growers to produce their high quality, highly characterful wines.
