Crawford River Riesling 2018

JAMES HALLIDAY 95 POINTS!

"This wine is in its infancy and has a long life ahead of it.  Blossoms of lime and apple lift the nose, together with talc and delicate white stone fruit.  The front palate is soft and supple with fruit and blossom in equal measure, together with taut, mineral overtones.  The generosity of the introduction is followed by a fine, mineral-wrapped palate with polished texture and supple, natural acidity.  Layered and fine, the wine exudes confidence and finesse, while the poised, balance acidity lends terrific length to a wine that will surely age magnificently." - Crawford River

"From the '75-'77 planting, crushed and whole-bunch pressed, cool-fermented with cultured and wild yeast, 3 months on gross lees. The bouquet is a butterfly, moving from flower to flower so quickly it's hard to keep up with the citrus blossom, rose petal and wild flower only part of the story. The palate crystallises the citrus component with nerve-tingling acidity." - James Halliday, Aug 2019
