Cranswick Sarus 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.
This impressive Australian Shiraz is sourced from established, low yielding Barossa Valley vineyards producing intensely flavoured grapes of outstanding quality.
The Sarus crane is the world’s tallest flying bird and is native to Australia. It is revered as a symbol of long life throughout Asia, and is considered sacred in Nepal and Northern India.
