Overview

This classic northern Spanish variety, our Crabtree Watervale Tempranillo is produced from our estate grown fruit in the very heart of the Watervale subregion of the Clare Valley.

The vines were planted in 1993 and 2003 in conjunction with the Clare Valley vine improvement society as a trial seeking suitable varieties that would flourish in drier and warmer conditions. The clone was sourced from California's Davis University and to date has proven to be extremely successful.

The clone is now propagated across South East Australia nurseries.

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.
