Location: Clare Valley, S.A.
Winemaker – Kerri Thompson
Robert Crabtree emigrated from England to establish a winery modeled on the famous French Burgundy estates, that are renowned for their home grown wines that truly reflect the site the vines are grown.
He chose the Clare Valley and a site with a 100 year old history of vine growing, and hence Crabtree Watervale Wines was established.
Little has changed from the early days in 1979, with the Crabtree Winery still honoring the philosophy Crabtree Wines started with. All of our wines are produced from our estate vineyards in Watervale and are handcrafted with passion and care.
All of our vines are handpicked and hand pruned, and by using traditional winemaking techniques we produce premium quality wines for all to enjoy.
Our estate vineyards produce approximately 6000 cases per annum with a 50% Riesling yield.
All our wines are ready to enjoy now or can be cellared if you prefer. To bring out the best of our reds, we recommend decentering.
