About

About The Wine

Candice and Frewin have a particular fascination with Grüner Veltliner, and are probably the first Australian producer to explore 'sub-regionality' with the variety.

This comes from Geoff Hardy's famed KI Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills, and is a wonderfully pure and pristine expression of Grüner. It's early-picked and definitely a wine driven by acid and refreshment rather than overt flavour. Aside from a small amount of lees contact to add texture, the focus here is on clean and pure fruit.

As always with CRFT's wines there is precious little added to the wines, and it is vegan-friendly. Grüner is a grape excelling in the Adelaide Hills, and no one executes it with more thought and care than CRFT. Give it a go!

About CRFT

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.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Fresh green apple with the lift of spring flowers and zingy citrus notes of lemon and lime-leaf. The palate is tight with grapefruit flavours and peppery tannins, but swept with a mouth-coating textural richness. Lingers with white peach and fennel seed spice. - CRFT Wines

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
