Crabtree Tempranillo 2016 - Clare Valley, South Australia


The Story

The Crabtree site has been planted to vineyards for well over 100 years, with the first vines being planted in the 1880’s, though none of these original plantings exist today. It is a boutique winery in the heart of the Watervale district of the Clare Valley.

Kerri Thompson is a dedicated and talented winemaker and has been making wine in the Clare Valley since 1998. She spent time at Wirra Wirra before eight years at Leasingham Wines, before also establishing her own label, Wines by KT, as well as her current role with Crabtree vineyards. KT is also her nickname and she is one busy winemaker!
