Fifty kilometres inland from the Victorian coast, halfway between Warnambool and Coonawarra, an unusally complex mix of friable, basalt loams and permeable clays, overlaying the limestones of an ancient seabed, form a terroir that's opportune for viticulture and idyllic for Riesling. Vines were planted at Crawford River in 1975 in the midst of a large cattle station, established by John Thomson's great grandfather in 1884. The young vines moniker is completely relative, as the most recent plantings at Crawford River are in excess of fourteen years.
TASTING NOTES
Light, pale hues. Delicate blossom nose, lime peel and fresh apple notes up front. Fragrant limes and cut apple flavours on the distinctly mineral palate, wet stone characters, chalkiness and textural, supple and soft. Brightly balanced acidity follows through to the back, leading to a crisp, mouthwatering, evolving finish.

More About Crawford River Wines
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»
