Currabridge Shiraz

Currabridge is a range of wines produced by a fairly large company called Cranswick - a family name thought to derive from Crane's Wyke (the village of cranes) in Yorkshire, as recorded in the Domesday Book. The Cranswick brand was created in 1991 by Graham Cranswick-Smith

Vineyards

The Shiraz is grown on clay loam soils. The vines are 15 years old and are trained to a single cordon with two foliage wires.

Vinification

The Shiraz were harvested at 13.0 Be, when flavour and colour indices were at the maximum. The must was fermented at temperatures between 18 and 25 degrees in order to help extract flavour and colour components from the grape skins. The skins were then gently pressed, with only the free run fraction being kept insuring that soft tannins would be present in the final wine. The wine was then stored on French oak staves and allowed to mature prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

Subtle aromas of raspberry and spicy fruit on the nose. A flavoursome palate with savoury blackcurrant and stewed plum characters, integrated with lingering vanilla oak flavours.

Ideal with pasta, red meat and BBQs
