Never on the shy side, the Cemetery Shiraz bears all. Rich and concentrated, dried fig, blackberry, blackcurrant and cinnamon. The palate is velvety and smooth with pops of red current. Dark and bold, yet elegant and feminine, she is all power and soul.

CRFT Wines express the place where it started and the uniqueness that comes from individual sites. Each wine is made from grapes picked from a single vineyard and every bottle becomes an honest reflection of that one specific location, an untarnished sample of soil and season.
CRFT sources fruit from nine vineyards across the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Just two to three tonnes are picked from each block and wines are produced in small batches of about 2,000 bottles.
The winemaking philosophy is simple: preserve what the vineyard grew and create balance and harmony, leaving a minimal winemaking footprint.
