This off-dry original clone from the Rhine River is aromatic and offers honey top notes with tastes of nectarine, apricot, and crisp apples. This wine also boasts a strong mineral base with a surprising key lime finish.
How this wine got its name is actually quite interesting! It is about our wine filter, Cristal. As the tale goes while bottling Riesling she sprung a leak and the crew not wanting to lose the wine put two measuring cups under Cristal. They were filling up fast, so they decided to drink the overflow while they worked. Everyone was doing their best to keep up with Cristal and it wasn’t until the next day that they saw how the labels looked! And so the story goes, it wasn’t our fault, it was Cristal’s Fault.

2017 Private Reserve
A hobby soon turned into a passion which then turned into a vision that was just shy of an obsession. This would be a fair description of my father, Glennallyn, for his handcrafted wines and for the first vineyard in Penticton. His focus was on the quality of his vines and wines, certainly not on quantity. So with his 100% pure clones from the old country, he created his vision. Almost 36 years ago now this family owned obsession carries on. And because all of what (Glennallyn) had accomplished so many years ago and from the very beginning, we do not believe we need marketing gimmicks or trendy names… just his story and his name, Glennallyn. This old vine Gewürztraminer boasts over fifteen foot roots and pulls all the water and nutrients from the dirt that most other Gewürztraminer’s cannot, this is why we believe this wine has unmatchable flavour.
A strong grapefruit presence with a light kiss of white pepper, delicious apricot kernel and delicate tropical fruit along with sweet spices. You will be spellbound drinking this legend.

2016 cabernet sauvignon
Sea Hag is a maritime folklore story of a beautiful Maiden who's heart was broken by a dashing young sailor that swindled her out of her family's fortune. Humiliated, she stoled away on his ship. Later she was discovered by him and mercilessly thrown overboard. Anguished by this, the sailors say when the wind howls hard out at sea, you can hear the breaking of her heart all over again. Imagining this, Sailors tagged her hag of the sea!
Cabernet Sauvignon is the heartbreaker of the red wines and here at Crescent Hill it is drank in celebration of this and Sea Hag, or anyone whose heart has been broken, especially on a windy night.
