For over 65 years the Crossing family have farmed the Angullong property which sits in the foothills of Mount Canobolas in the cool highlands of Orange. The Crossing Reserve represents the best parcels of Shiraz from this single vineyard. It is a wine of concentrated fruit, complexity and persistence of flavour.

A fuller bodied wine with concentrated flavours of mulberry and dark berries complemented by spice and herbs with integrated oak and persistent length. It has a lovely balanced and complex structure with approachable yet drying tannins that will further integrate with time in the cellar.
