Crabtree Watervale Shiraz 2018
- Textured, savoury
- Clare Valley
This old vine, open-fermented, basket-pressed, single block Clare shiraz from Crabtree has the right stuff. Aged in French oak for over a year, it’s got a spicy, dark-fruited core, slightly grainy, vanillin overtones but is quintessentially medium-bodied. Elegant and textural without any over-extraction. It’s the details in the harvest and the production that result in another winner from this former Winemaker of the Year nominee (Gourmet Traveller Mag).

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
