Description

Not such young vines really, but this label has its own identity now. Partial whole bunch press is used, and about 3 months on lees. This is typically the softest, most forward Crawford River Riesling, but still imbued with lively lemon zest and lime characters and slatey acidity. Some fullness and sweetness of fruit through the palate adds to its drink-now appeal. 95 points, Steven Creber, Halliday Wine Companion

Sorta young vines, with plantings from 2010 and 2000 used for this wine. Crawford River should be on any riesling lovers radar, though I suspect it already is well and truly.  All the florals, all the citrus fruits, flinty, tangy, pithy and pristine. It shows great velocity through the palate, pinpoint accuracy too, zestiness, a mouth-puckering and refreshing finish. It’s summery as it is elegant and unevolved, a svelte, whooshing thrust of riesling with fine detail in tow. Deliciousness is a by-word. No brainer for anyone who loves lively, energetic, refreshing white wines, with a touch of class. 94 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
