Other Reviews....
This is a wine of both power and texture, but more importantly, it's a wine of complexity. It engages you. Citrus rind, grapefruit, petroleum, crushed fennel seeds and bright orange blossom characters put on a display that is at once exquisite and kaleidoscopic. Drink 2023-2032.

All hail Crawford River riesling! The top dog from the top dog!
It’s magnificent. A schooling in riesling beauty, tension, texture, vitality, layers of fruit, spice, yeasty elements and a persistence that can’t be beat. If anything, a little more understated than other Reserve rieslings from CR, not quite delicate but playing to a more gentle strength. Fragrant, with a fog of fruit and spice, flavoursome but in a sheath of lightly puckering texture. Stains the palate gently too. I like that the wine has character, not set to a standard, loaded with character. Vibrant through that great trail of the finish. Stellar stuff. Drink 2023 - 2035+
