Steve Crawford started his Barossa label under the pseudonym of Frederick Stevenson whilst working at a larger winery. Now, flying solo, Steve's minimalist, vibrant vinos are garnering plenty of attention for the lighter shade of the region that they portray.
Blackberry, spiced plum compote, mulberries, blackberry leaf, alpine herbs and a touch of peppery saucisson. Full and plush plums and cherries upfront, which makes way to a sweet core of blackberries with fresh acidity. A slight cooling alpine herb feel that returns to full fruit and tannin to close. Tight tannins are present throughout, but really pull the wine into focus as the acid line tails off.
