Crawford River Young Vines Riesling 2018

WINE FRONT 94 POINTS! 

"All the florals, all the citrus fruits, flinty, tangy, pithy and pristine. It shows great velocity through the palate, pinpoint accuracy too, zestiness, a mouth-puckering and refreshing finish. It’s summery as it is elegant and unevolved, a svelte, whooshing thrust of riesling with fine detail in tow. Deliciousness is a by-word. No brainer for anyone who loves lively, energetic, refreshing white wines, with a touch of class." - The Wine Front

"This wine is produced from the grapes of 2 vineyard plantings of younger Riesling now. Most of the fruit from the vineyard planted in 2000 and the remainder from 20 rows we planted in 2010.  This is the first time these young vines from 2014 have fruited anything and we are excited to have very decent volumes for the 2018 vintage. We still see a stylistic difference between the juice of the original blocks of fruit we planted in 1975. We  will continue to make the ‘young vines riesling’, now identifiable to so many of our clients.

Blossom and citrus notes abound in this wine, both on the nose and the palate. These elements, coupled with stone-like, mineral overtones and grapefruit pith makes for a delicious, complex mouthful.  The time on lees helps create a textural palate and lively acidity aids length and balance." - Crawford River
