Cranswick Lakefield Shiraz

Founded by Graham Cranswick Smith, the wines take their cue 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. Grapes are specially selected from small parcels of vines from South Eastern Australia. The vines are carefully cultivated to our specifications, with low yields producing intenselyflavoured grapes of outstanding quality.
