The 2012 Crabtree Hilltop Vineyard Riesling is produced from our estate grown Hilltop block fruit in the very heart of the Watervale sub region of the Clare Valley. The fruit was handpicked and carefully selected to retain the freshness and punchy citrus fruit flavour that Watervale is renowned.
- SA - Clare Valley
- South Australia
Beware, not Hilltops region, but the estate vineyard block; softer and fruitier than most '11 rieslings, offering pleasure now with its tropical nuances and soft acidity. Rating 90 - Drink by 2015 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
Our Hilltop Vineyard Riesling shows lifted floral aromatics and a crisp and clean palate with soft acidity.
With careful cellaring this wine should mature gracefully for 10+ years.
Serve with spicy Thai dishes.
