About the Vineyard
Crooked River Wines commercial winery was completed in 2001. The winery boasts 280,000 litres of stainless steel fermentation and storage tanks and 70,000 litres of oak barrels.
In 20 years of production, Crooked River Wines has won multiple awards for its premium quality red and white wines. Crooked River Wines is the largest vineyard on the NSW South Coast. Our passion for winemaking creates a special energy during days amongst the vines.
A LITTLE ABOUT OUR REDS… All our grapes are handpicked and processed separately. This allow all varieties to mature fully and develop their varietal charters. The grapes are then crushed, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks, to extract excellent colour and flavour. When fermentation is complete the wines are pressed by our air bag tank press and maturated in oak a blend of French and American Oak for two years. Upon maturation the wine is ready for blending and bottling.
A LITTLE ABOUT OUR WHITES… Our white grapes are handpicked in the cool of the morning. They are then crushed, destemmed and pressed in our air bag tank press. The juice is then chilled and settled for two days, before being racked and fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks for approximately ten days. After fermentation is complete the wine is racked and stabilised before it is blended and prepared for bottling.
