Inspired by the site's potential to produce superior quality grapes, John and Catherine Thomson planted their dry grown Riesling vines in 1975 at Crawford River in southwest Victoria, a relatively unexplored winegrowing region. All the pruning, picking, shoot and fruit thinning, leaf plucking and general canopy management are done entirely by hand. Patience and time are of the essence around the winery, minimal interference and movement during vinification, the fruit is naturally allowed to express the specialness of the terroir. After the crush, clarified juices are coolly vinified at 12°C to 15°C until complete dryness, followed by six weeks on yeast lees to infuse purity and elegance into the finished wine.
Light, lime straw colour. Lime, apple and spice aromas. Chalky minerality pervades the delicate bouquet with subtle hints of honeysuckle and apple blossom. With its fresh intense lemon tonic and pear, apple and oyster shell aromas, superb lemon curd richness, persistence and minerality Crawford River Riesling reflects the modern idiom of the Riesling style.
