Expert Reviews

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)

Bur Watervale Estate Riesling has mouth filling concentration and is balanced with finely textured, juicy acidity.

Cellaring

With careful cellaring this wine should mature gracefully for 10+ years.

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.
