The 2012 Crabtree Watervale Riesling is produced from our estate grown 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 for which Watervale is renowned.

Bright straw-green; there is an extra dimension of fruit complexity to both the bouquet and palate compared to its Hilltop sibling, yet it retains its elegance and lightness of step, chalky acidity providing gentle restraint. Greatness waits around the corner. Rating 95 - Drink by 2027 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
Lifted aromatics of lemon zest and citrus spice
Bur Watervale Estate Riesling has mouth filling concentration and is balanced with finely textured, juicy acidity.
With careful cellaring this wine should mature gracefully for 10+ years.
Serve with fresh Coffin Bay oysters or pan fried garfish fillets.
