Crabtree wins trophy at 2019 Clare Wine Show
Trophy – Best Exhibition Section Dry 2018 Riesling and the winner is…
2018 Robert Crabtree Watervale Riesling.
Nick Ryan – wine writer for the Australian tasted this wine in May 2019, see his notes below;
I really like this. Hurry up and release it. Sweetly spiced citrus, lemons and limes, some bath salts and blossom.
It’s fragrant and fine boned, shows off lovely long lines. Lots of life ahead of it. You can see why this is a step above the other wines.
