About this Wine

This wine is produced from the grapes of 2 vineyard plantings of younger Riesling, most of which was sourced from vineyards planted in 2000 and the remainder from 20 rows planted planted in 2010.  This is the first time these young vines from 2014 have fruited anything of note.

"Not such young vines really, but this label has its own identity now. Partial whole bunch press is used, and about 3 months on lees. This is typically the softest, most forward Crawford River Riesling, but still imbued with lively lemon zest and lime characters and slatey acidity. Some fullness and sweetness of fruit through the palate adds to its drink-now appeal." 95pts - Steven Creber - Wine Companion 

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.
