Crawford River Wines

Crawford River Wines vineyard was planted in 1975 at Crawford River, in far south-west Victoria. With its fresh intense lemon tonic/ pear/ apple/ oyster shell aromas, superb lemon curd richness, persistence and minerality, Crawford River Riesling reflects the modern idiom of the Riesling style.

The Crawford River vineyard lies at the alluvial edge of a volcanic lava flow. The 11.5 Ha vineyard has its roots in an unusually complex, mineral-rich soil base. Gravelly, friable, basalt loam overlays  permeable clay which in turn lies above a limestone base created by an ancient, risen seabed. Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon are the two main varieties in the vineyard, with smaller plantings of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Semillon and  Sauvignon Blanc. All major activities such as picking, pruning, leaf-plucking, shoot-thinning and green pruning are done by hand. The vineyard is maintained by organic practices and a bio-dynamic test plot that has prepared and has planted with Riesling in the Spring of 2014.
