Cranswick Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Founded by Graham Cranswick Smith, the wines take theircue from his family name, thought to derive from the Crane’s Wyke (the village of cranes) in Yorkshire as recorded in the medieval Domesday Book. The Cranswick wines are expertly crafted to reflect the very best of Australia’s winemaking heritage. Offering a three tier range of classic wines designed to be superb examples of Australian varietals from carefully selected vineyards in New South Wales and South Australia.
This Cabernet is planted on red clay lime stone soils. The vines are over 20 years of age, not irrigated, resulting in fruit of exceptional quality.
