Exactingly fashioned from parcels of Semillon grapes, hand picked off dry grown vines, an exquisitely fragrant wine with a serious weight of palate, deliciously reflecting the cooler, balmy maritime breezes which rejuvenate the vineyard. The quality of fruit at Crawford River is the product of a painstaking approach to viticulture and careful management of crop levels throughout the growing season. The concentration of flavours and finely attenuated acidity offer great opportunty for growers with the nerve to tough out the extended vintages at Henty.
Crawford River Wines has been a stimulating challenge for a fourth generation wool grower exploring the viticultural benefits of Henty as a new and unique appellation. As the first Crawford Vineyard posts were pounded into the slope in 1975, a number of the bemused locals pondered the efficacy of a drive-in theatre at such a remote location! A growing number of vineyards adopting the undulating grazing fields and natural bushlands of the surrounding landscape are today making significant contributions to the tapestry of Victoria viticulture. Following vinification and extended time on lees, a small amount has been barrel fermented in old French oak barriques, lending subtle textural elegance, balance and finesse.
TASTING NOTES
Light straw colour. Subtle is the keyword, fragrant bouquets of honeysuckle, minerals and lime . A deliciously fresh, soft and evenly poised palate underpinned by firm chalky minerality, courtesy of time spent on lees. Fine, linear acidity is complimented by plush texture throughout, the lingering, bone dry finish is bright, persistent and crisp.

About the Crawford River Winery
Inspired by its potential to produce superior quality grapes, John and Catherine Thomson planted their vineyard in 1975 at Crawford River, in south west Victoria, a relatively unexplored wine growing region
Crawford River is located in the Henty winegrowing region on the Upper Hotspur Road between Hotspur, on the Casterton/Heywood Road and Condah, along the Henty Highway, half way between Hamilton and Portland. The winery is less than an hour from Port Fairy, Dunkeld, Portland and Mt. Gambier in South Australia. The beautiful cellar door building added in 2000 was designed by Graeme Gunn. Visitors can drink in the glorious views of the vineyard that sweep down to grazing cattle and sheep as they sample the wines. Crawford River»
