Crawford River Nektar

Cracka Review

Made from Semillon and Sauvignon blanc, this NEKTAR exhibits the elegance and superb balance of sugar, acid and alcohol that is so crucial to its integrity.

A fresh bouquet of honeysuckle, apricots and minerals leads to a deliciously lively and finely structured palate of great purity, leading seamlessly to a lingering, chalky finish which is clean and fresh and not cloying. Sealed with a Stelvin screwcap, its attributes will intensify and mature beautifully with careful cellaring.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
As always, a super racy style, with great acidity, pure and precise fruit, and a long and harmonious finish; give it a few years.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Fine, elegant understated Germanic auslese style; perfect balancing acidity; will richly repay patience.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; intense lime juice aromas on both the bouquet and palate show the clearest possible varietal character notwithstanding the botrytis; the palate is of auslese sweetness, long and pure.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; the bouquet is clean and powerful, but without any particular varietal character. The palate would seem to include Semillon as well as Riesling; powerful and well-balanced honey and cumquat flavours
