Crabtree Fortified Shiraz is made exclusively from Crabtree Watervale Estate fruit. Bunches are handpicked and carefully selected to ensure the best possible fruit condition.
Open fermented and fortified on skins using lovely old brandy spirit helping to give the Shiraz a well -integrated character. Basket pressed using traditional methods and stored in older French oak for 12 months. Lifted berry fruit flavours of licorice and raspberry, Crabtree’s fortified Shiraz shows perfumed aromatics and a sweet rich finish.
With careful cellaring this wine should mature gracefully for 12+ years.
