Crawford River Wines Riesling 2020Regular price $48.00
Consistently one of the best Riesling producers in Australia, in fact some Riesling producers benchmark themselves against this Riesling.
"Crawford River riesling needs little introduction. The 2020 harvest in Henty seems to be very good by most reports, though I’ve heard of yields being down and some climate pressure with frost and the like, early. Crawford River’s vineyards are in their own universe so probably all good there. Brilliant riesling. Texture, weight, drive, energy – top marks for all. Scents of green apple juice, frangipani, ozone, fennel and lime. Flavours are similar with beautiful concentration, glossy texture, flecks of talc-powdery minerality, and an extremely long, cool, herbal, juicy-lime finish making this moreish and righteous. Impeccable balance, a sense of grace and comely flow. A wine to sip and savour; relish the little details. Magic stuff."
