Crawford River Cabernet Merlot 2016

Serious concentration of both fruit and tannin is evident in the wines of 2016, due in part to the unusually dry conditions. Cassis, blood plum and dark chocolate are all front runners here.

About this Wine

Serious concentration of both fruit and tannin is evident in the wines of 2016, due in part to the unusually dry conditions.  Cassis, blood plum and dark chocolate are all front runners here.  These follow to the palate and together with some allspice, red fruits and liquorice conspire to form a delicious, balanced and approachable drink.  

"Sweet blackcurrant and blackberry, dark raspberry, new leather and a bit of truffle, pencils and violet. It’s medium-bodied, fluid and lithe, yet deep in fruit, graphite tannin, succulence, perhaps a little mint and tobacco leafiness, and a long cool finish packed with tightly-knit fine chalky tannin. Really like this." 94pts - Gary Walsh - Wine Front

About the Winery

The greatest Riesling producer in Victoria and for many wine lovers has emerged as the greatest Riesling producer in the nation.

John and Catherine Thomson planted the vineyard in 1975 at Crawford River, in far south-west Victoria. They were inspired by its potential to produce superior quality grapes after researching & experiencing many grape growing areas of the world. It was a relatively unexplored wine growing region and indeed remains merely a blot on the canvas. The area is now known as the GI of Henty. 

Since the initial plantings in the mid 1970´s, there have been 2 more small plantings. Believing in the fine quality of the Semillon included in the original plantings, John and Catherine added another 0.7 Ha of the variety in the early 1990´s. In 2000, another block of Riesling & Cabernet was added, which now produces the Young Vines Riesling & Rose wines.
