The coldest recorded place in South Australia most days is Mount Crawford in the Eden Valley; great news for premium quality white grapes. Consider also that the vineyard has a superb aspect and is in the best part of one of Australia’s greatest white wine producing regions and you have the basis for crafting some of Australia’s finest white wines – now available under the new Thorn-Clarke Mount Crawford label.
“The high altitude cooler climes of the Eden Valley are ideal for riesling. This is typically minerally with a little lemon-scented blossom in there. The palate is still restrained but approachable with a terrific natural acidity sustaining the finish. Excellent wine for the shorter term.”
