The drive through the hills from CRFT HQ to Mt Bera is a windy and picturesque experience. The gorge section from Cudlee Creek to the gate gives you no choice but to be immersed in it. From the road, the rugged terrain makes a vineyard seem unlikely, but as you twist up the hill you are rewarded with an amphitheatre with a vineyard that stretches from the hill-top down.

The experience follows through to the wine, in the glass it has a visual and aromatic liveliness. The nose has a crackle and pop of fennel and white pepper.

The palate is textual and savoury with celery, alpine strawberry, mineral and lime characters that leave you feeling refreshed.
