2022 Crawford River Riesling

Crawford River

Henty, Victoria

This wine always takes a while to wake up and will continue to come out of its shell in the coming year. It leads with crushed rock & chalky minerality. Following on the nose is citrus, fruit and florals. Layers of kafir lime, white nectarine & apple blossom. The palate is textured and complex with the minerality continuing on the palate which is a hallmark of this site. The fruit is layered and intense with nashi pear, white nectarine and grapefruit with soft acidity lending incredible length to finish. This wine is ready to drink however will benefit from more time in the bottle - Winery note

"This is one of the most straight up delicious releases I have tried. Moreish to the max. It’s succulent in texture, which is important, which means it’s juicy but also has chalky pucker. perfect. This one has a lime sorbet bent, green apple sherbet too, a splash of gin n tonic perhaps – all of that sounds pretty delicious as a thing to consume. It’s fragrant, flavoursome and very refreshing. Extension of flavour is significant too. It just nails everything so well." 96 Points - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

"Bright lemon and lime glints in the light while aromas of lime, lemon meringue and jasmine jump out. There is undoubtedly a rich plushness here, but it's built as texture, not overt sweetness, and character is built by layers of spice and stony minerality. Carries very long and lingers with a remarkable seamlessness for such a youthful wine." 96 Points - Stuart Knox, The Real Review
