This wine honours Thomas Craven, a pioneering character lured to Victoria by the 1850s gold rush. He prospered by selling supplies to miners from a Heathcote store, now our cellar door. By turns a mail coach operator, publican, and wine merchant, Thomas helped put Heathcote on the map, much like our wine, in fact.
The wine is sourced from a vineyard in the north of the Heathcote Region. The nose displays classic notes of blackcurrant and tobacco full of dark fruits.
