Craiglee Chardonnay 2017

Craiglee Chardonnay 2017

Macedon Ranges, Victoria   |    750ml   |    14%
While Shiraz rightfully takes the spotlight at Craiglee; their Chardonnay is consistently one of the benchmark examples of the Macedon Ranges region. Winemaker Pat Carmody modestly says: 'I don't think there's any secret to my Chardonnay. They're relatively simply made wines. I pick 'em a bit riper than is fashionable. I don't let them go through malo, I don't lees stir much and they spend about 10 months in oak, around 20 per cent new.'

Famous for its elegance and purity of flavours, this 2017 Craiglee Chardonnay is a beautiful exercise in balance of the quality French oak and pristine, cool-climate fruit flavours.

Craiglee is one of the true legendary wineries of Australia, with the quality of wines befitting its remarkable history.

James Johnston, one of Melbourne's founding fathers, established the Craiglee Vineyard back in 1860's and after a long hiatus from the Australian wine landscape, was replanted by current owner and winemaker Pat Carmody in 1976.

Over the ensuing years, Carmody and his family have carefully restored Craiglee to its former glory and established it as one of Australia's leading cool-climate wineries - their Shiraz and Chardonnay leading the charge.

Craiglee Chardonnay is recognisable for its simple elegance and its purity of flavour which respects the fruit we grow on our river flats. In the winery we ferment and nurture the wine in French oak barrels to maintain the characteristics of the grapes in the paddock We see aromas of stone fruits and passionfruit, creamy oak overtones and pleasing mouthfeel.
