Winemaking
Winemakers select vineyards within the Barossa which will deliver the range of flavours and depth of character required for the pinnacle of Cranswick wines, Sarus Shiraz. This specially selected fruit was grown in the moderately warm climate of the Barossa Valley and harvested in mid-March to allow time for flavours to develop. The berries were crushed into stainless steel red fermenters with the skin cap continually irrigated helping to extract maximum colour and soft tannins. The ferment took place on the medium toasted French oak planks helping to integrate soft oak flavours inot the resulting wine. The wine was pressed at 2 Be, finished ferment and undertook malolactic fermentation in French and American 225 litre oak barriques. The wine matrued in oak for 9 months prior to bottling.

Tasting Note
This wine shows ripe, blackberry fruit flavours with hints of spicy black pepper and toasted vanillin oak. An intense wine with black berry fruit flavours complexed with spicy vanillin oak flavours and a full balanced rich textured palate.

Serving Suggestions
Serve on its own or with roast meat dishes, such as lamb or beef, or with a selection of mature hard cheeses.
