A lively, medium-bodied Shiraz, fleshy and dense in flavour; finishes long with primary fruit and supple tannins.
Sourced from a single vineyard in the North of the Heathcote Region, this wine is created as an approachable, bright and supple wine. Each batch of wine was fermented cool to retain the fresh fruit flavours of the wine. Pressing of the wine occurred once all the sugars were fermented, and the tannins were firm and integrated. After settling in tank, the 2012 Cravens Place Shiraz was aged in predominantly American oak for up to eight months.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant ruby red with purple hues.
Fruits of the forest dominate the palate, with the sweet vanillin oak adding to the aromas.
The dark berry fruit seen on the nose follows through onto the palate along with spice and cherries and redcurrants. The tannins are supple, and the wine is rich, round and mouthfulling.
Enjoy on release or cellar in the short term.
