Expert Reviews

From the estate Windmill Block, open-fermented and matured in new, one- and two-year-old French barriques for 18 months; has a degree of savoury elegance to its medium-bodied palate not common in the Clare Valley, and in consequence has very good length. Rating 94 - Drink by 2030 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (28/AUG/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2010 Watervale Cabernet is fragrant and lifted with violets and sweet black current fruit.

Palate

Fine grained tannins coat the palate and deliver grip.

Cellaring

While accessible as a young wine in the first year of release this finely balanced Cabernet will develop gracefully for 6 - 8 years.

Food Matching

Decant before serving. A perfect match with Clare Valley Saltbush Lamb roast served with winter greens

and homemade mint sauce.

Winery Profile

5 Star rated from James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2013

Wine industry executives Richard Woods and Rasa Fabian purchased Crabtree in 2007 and left Sydney corporate life for the ultimate seachange. Collectively, they had decades of sales and marketing experience, and remain adamant that Crabtree should be an estate brand, and therefore limited in volume. Kerri Thompson (from Wines by KT) is a highly talented and very experienced winemaker, having a great record with Riesling.
