2018 Crawford River ‘Young Vines’ Riesling
Crawford River is simply an iconic producer. Their Henty Riesling is probably the best in Australia. That the majority of the vines that make up their young vine bottling are now twenty years old really says something about the quality we’re looking at here.
The wine is bright, fresh, bursting with citrus and florals and understated power. It’s precise, pure, staggering stuff and frankly it’s mind blowing that they don’t charge more for it.
You could age this for a decade but you’ll probably drink it immediately.
