CRAWFORD RIVER WINES
Tucked away in Henty, South-Western Victoria, Crawford River Estate was established in 1874 as a sheep and cattle station and still remains in family hands. Fourth generation grazier and Wagga-trained winemaker John Thomson planted a vineyard in 1975 and produced his first late harvest Riesling in 1979. Now joined by his daughter Belinda Thomson, the wines have gone from strength to strength. Best known for their Reserve Riesling, Crawford River also produces a Riesling from younger vines in addition to Semillon, Rosé, and Cabernet Merlot; the hallmark of the entire range being balance and poise.
