2023 Crawford River Strata Riesling Crawford River

From: $36.00

2023 Crawford River Strata Riesling Crawford River – Formally known as ‘Young Vines’ Riesling. The fruit for this wine is sourced from a block that was added in 2001 at the western border of the original plantings. While the very top of this block is an ironstone-rich, gravelly ridge, much of the block shows a prevalence towards a rich, loam dominant soil over limestone footing. These factors coupled with a multitude of influences, micro-climatic and otherwise, yield an expression quite different to their original blocks. The loam based plantings tend to be more open and expressive, particularly as younger wines. They also lean towards a more dominantly fruit driven front and mid palate.

Citrus leaning towards the Myer lemon and Clementine spectrum are the driving forces here. There is ginger spice, sherbet and red apple skin, almost in equal measure, with lime lingering in the background. A lovely round palate, with soft textural elements that bely the cool year and shine throughout. Supple and even, the back palate has plenty of dried, mountain herbs, which add a savoury edge and freshness to the generous, long finish.
