This wine honours Thomas Craven, a pioneering character lured to Victoria by the 1850’s gold rush.
The grapes for the Cravens Place Shiraz are sourced from the warmer north of the Heathcote region.
Vintage 2020 delivered warm days and cool nights, providing a long, slow maturation period. The result is a wine that is densely packed with rich, dark primary fruits and a palate that is sweet, supple and rounded.
This wine is aged for a short period in a combination of French and American oak. This adds a spiced structural element that enhances complexity and interest.
