Crawford River Wines 'Reserve' Riesling 2015Regular price $96.00
"What a coup that one of the country’s best Riesling producers gifts us a wine with this kind of bottle age, mainlining a wine in its prime of drinking. And it is. And as ever, the real deal.
Concentration and power with grace and freshness. You see the maturity in elements of honeycomb and brown lime notes, a bit of peanut brittle and hazelnut in the mix, but green lime, green apple and green mango are persuasive, and the texture has this incredible chalky edge that brings forth max drinkability and a great reset of the palate after each sip. It’s a wine with its plumage on show, a fine, excellent and complex thing in the glass. Outstanding release – and more to go."
