Crawford River Cabernets 2017
6 PACK BUY Cabernets from Henty in Victoria.
Crawford River wines from Henty in South Western Victoria are crafted exclusively from hand-picked and selected fruit grown at their estate vineyard, whereupon they are vinified and bottled on site. The fruit is brought to the winery in small parcels, where meticulous attention is paid to detail. Patience and time are of the essence in their winery. Leading light in terms of quality estate grown fruit and premium wines of top notch caliber.
From the winery about this 2016 release: “70% Cab Sav, 30% Cab Franc/Merlot. Beautiful concentration of both fruit and tannin is evident in the wines of 2016. Cassis, blood plum and chocolate are all front runners here. These follow through to the palate together with some allspice, red fruits and liquorice which all come together to form a delicious, balanced and approachable drink. Firm, fine fruit tannins sit alongside more structured, judiciously balanced French Oak tannins, helping shape the textural palate. Fine, natural acidity helps pull all these elements together and solidify its length. Terrific drinking now, but will no doubt benefit from time and air as our wines often do. Screwcap.”
90 points, James Halliday 2020 Australian Wine Companion: “…Shows some gamey/leathery character on the bouquet with aromas of redcurrant and a touch of dried currant coming through as well. Medium-bodied, it offers ripe and supple red and blue fruited flavours with a fairly firm cedary tannin finish.”
