Brown Brothers Crouchen Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Crouchen is a grape style you see very little of in Australia, but it’s rife in the Pyrenees region of France and even in South Africa. Here Brown Brothers have blended it with Riesling to create an intensely aromatic white. Next time you are heading to your local Thai, grab this by the neck and unleash it once your curry has arrived. Ripe aromas of peach, pear and passionfruit move towards a mouth-filling and textured palate punctuated by lively fruit before a crisp finish. Enjoy it now, chilled and served with aforementioned spicy Asian dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

A bright straw colour with youthful green tinges. The nose is lifted with aromas of passionfruit, ripe pear and spicy peach. They follow through to the palate which is mouth filling, full of natural grape sweetness and rounded out with a crisp balancing finish. This wine should be served well chilled and enjoyed when young and fresh.

This approachable and versatile wine is a great accompaniment to a variety of spicy dishes such as Thai green chicken curry or a warm salad of pumpkin, couscous, shaved pear, green sultana and harissa, as the natural fruit sweetness helps balance the spicy zing. Crouchen Riesling also complements light desserts such as pannacotta.
