The Cravens Place Shiraz is sourced primarily from the northern, warmer area of Heathcote. This may sound like an exaggeration but a couple of degrees can make a big difference and allows us to create this wine in a modern, fruit forward style with immediate appeal.

Attractive early drinking style offering ample blackberry-plum flavour and coffeed oak as sauce. Bistro style with a bit of extra class. Rating 90 - Drink by 2020, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Tasted on 01 DEC 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Dense, dark cherry red with a vibrant purple rim.
Sweet raspberry balances the savoury characters of fruitcake, coffee grinds, black tea, and cracked pepper.
Rich and vibrant in the modern style; Well-balanced acid gives a complete palate, an immediate hit of cherry and fresh raspberries gives way seamlessly to chocolate, coffee, and black pepper.
This wine is best enjoyed now or can be cellared for a medium term.
