About The Pack
Candice and Frewin at CRFT have been working at their single vineyard Pinot Noir project for years.
Their idea is to capture the differences in site and sub-region across the Adelaide Hills and showcase it to the world. This year they finally release their full suite of wines from five different vineyards across their region - including two wines from their home vineyard, Arranmore, in Piccadilly.
It's their finest release to date. One of the more thoughtful and ambitious explorations of terroir in South Australia.
Check out these exquisite Pinot Noirs and take a tour of the Hills from the comfort of your own home! This is a limited release tasting pack and will sell out.
