2009 Crawford River ‘Cabernets' Henty

Crawford River was established and planted in 1975 by John and Catherine Thomson, in far south-west Victoria. They were inspired by its potential to produce superior quality grapes after researching & experiencing many grape growing areas of the world. At the time it was a relatively unexplored wine growing region, nowadays, thanks to their work along with other producers, the area is known as the GI (geographical Indication) of Henty. Belinda Thomson, elder daughter of John and Catherine, returned home at the end of 2004 after completing her studies in Oenology and Viticulture and pursuing several vintages in various European locations. 

Why do we like it?

It's a wine that benefit tremendously from aging and this ‘Museum Release’ was kept in the winery for 10 years before they release a few bottles recently. It’s intensely perfumed with cherries, dark plum, mulberry, spices and leather, this wine is captivating from the outset.  The red & black fruits shine throughout the palate along with the slight herbal notes and it is balanced with elegant, fine tannins and complimentary oak.  The graphite-like quality of the ironstone that these vines have their roots in is evident along with the other mineral elements so often seen in our wines. The natural acidity lends balance and terrific persistence.
