A full-bodied Shiraz with dense flavours of dark cherry, white pepper and raspberry supported by soft velvety tannins. A long, warm ripening period allowed for steady accumulation of flavours which has resulted in a rich, generous wine – one of the best vintages of the last 10 years. Matured for 18 months in a selection of new (30%) and seasoned French oak. Oak was carefully selected that highlights the inherent fruit flavours, adds to the spice and lengthens the palate.
Our winery’s distinctive name echoes that given to a farm in the town of Craigo in Scotland. Where our ancestors settled alongside the docking point for the ferry that crossed the North Esk River. The Boat O’Craigo name and tradition have drifted across seas to settle and book-end Victoria’s burgeoning Yarra Valley with two magnificent vineyards, one in Healesville and the other in Kangaroo Ground. One red, the other white.
