From time to time at Crawford River, when vintage conditions are just so, the capricious botrytis cinerea blights a parcel or two of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. This however can be a blessing of nature, if a spell of clear skies and sunny days, just before the time of picking, works its magic by drying out the berries and intensifying the natural sugars. The uniquely favourable mesoclimes of the Henty region are heaven sent for white wines, even more so when mother nature sets the stage for a toothsome sauternes style to rival the very finest.
A mostly Sauvignon Blanc wine with a smaller component of Semillon. Fruit is slowly and carefully whole bunch pressed, the cleanest most pristine free run juices are essential to the integrity of style. Batches are racked for several days and treated to a regimen of rackings for clarification. A combination of yeasts inoculate the vinification, a third of the wine is filled to a selection of seasoned French oak for a luxurious course of barrel ferments, enriching the wine with complexity while softening the palate.
TASTING NOTES
Deep bright yellow. A lifted, fresh scent of elderflower blossom and apricots, followed by yellow nectarine, chargrilled peach and cashew notes. A luscious, textural and dense, focused structure on the palate, fresh passionfruit and ripe peach linger on the back, its crisp, clean acidity capping off the extremely persistent finish. Exquisite as aperitif, a joy alongside fresh fruit desserts and ices.

More About 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»
