Crane Creek Vineyards

Crane Creek Vineyards Crane Creek Vineyards sits high in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. The microclimate, a combination of warm, dry summer days, cool mountain nights and well-drained mineral soils allows us to cultivate grapes that produce complex wines with fresh, assertive aromas and concentrated flavors. The vineyard is located just three miles north of the quaint college town of Young Harris at the top of the Georgia Wine Highway, in the shadow of Brasstown Bald, the state's highest point. Less than two hours from Atlanta - yet a world away.

Norton Wine Review: Weather, setting, host, visitors, a stunning black bean soup, two well behaved dogs, and a different Hellbender Norton wine made for a great day. This Hellbender wine is named for the rare, locally found, red-orange, almost two feet long, largest salamander in the western hemisphere. Hellbender is produced on a small nineteen acre vineyard at 2100’ elevation with only one acre set aside for these fourteen year old non-lyred Norton vines. 225 cases annually can be produced if all goes well with the harvest. This is a no excuses dry 100% Norton wine with a typical Southern slight sour taste. Immediately one would conjure negative thoughts with such a description, but realize that most Southern wines, be they Merlot, Cabernet Franc, etc., have unique “sour” overtones because, in the proprietor’s opinion, of the regional clay soils. This is a nice Norton that doesn’t portray being overly oaked in spite of the fact that this 2007 wine had been held in Pennsylvania Oak barrels (very similar to French Oak in the opinion of the vintner) for over 25 months. I will “lay down’ this case of Hellbender for four or five years to see what time will bring to this interesting animal.
