Reviews and Accolades

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

The Wine Front - Mike Bennie

Wet slate, peach juice, preserved lemon, ginger. Supple, flowing, long, some richness here and strong minerality though savouriness is also a feature. Lots going on. Excellent the more you pause on it. And high drinkability. Into it.

The Real Review - Stuart Knox

A bright straw-yellow hue. White peach, roasted nut and struck flint aromatics. It's tightly-wound on the palate with barely ripe stone fruits, lemon zest layering with bacon fat and a saline minerality. Acidity is a big part of the wine, with a tight focus into a dry fuzz of phenolics at the finish

CRFT

CRFT Wines, founded by winemakers Candice Helbig and Frewin Ries, specializes in crafting small-batch single-vineyard wines. Candice and Frewin began their winemaking journey in 2012, with a passion for single-vineyard Pinot Noir, Shiraz, and the rare Grüner Veltliner. In 2016, they acquired Arranmore Vineyard, swiftly transitioning it to organic farming, and obtaining NASAA Certified Organic status by February 2019. Their estate offers wines like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Grüner Veltliner. CRFT's minimal-intervention winemaking starts with hand-picked fruit. They emphasize natural fermentation with wild yeasts, avoiding synthetic additives. Hand-plunging prevents unwanted hydrogen sulfide formation, and gravity is used for clarification instead of filtering. Their eco-friendly approach extends to the labels, featuring detailed soil photographs that visually represent the unique soil profiles from different blocks. These photos, created by the late Archie McArthur, underscore CRFT's commitment to celebrating the land and its essence.
