Craiglee Sunbury Shiraz NV

Craiglee Shiraz 2016

Macedon Ranges, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Craiglee is one of the finest examples of cool-climate Shiraz produced in Australia and a wine that always draws plenty of attention. The newly released 2016 Craiglee Sunbury Shiraz is the 40th vintage of Craiglee Shiraz, while also marking the 153rd anniversary of this legendary vineyard's founding in 1863.

A brilliant addition to any cellar, the 2016 vintage is aromatic and impeccably structured; the intensity of flavour, balance and lively bright fruit ensures this is a wine with a long life ahead of it.

"Finding a Cornas or Hermitage with the same finesse and complexity as a good Craiglee Shiraz would be a frighteningly expensive exercise"- Max Allen.

"One of the finest cool climate Shiraz in Australia"- James Halliday.

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.
Macedon Ranges
Nose - spice, mulberries, cherries and blueberries

Palate - savoury and spicy with notes of darker fruits such as blackberries. Firm tannins give tremendous length. The wine opens up nicely in the glass and rewards decanting.

Aging - Long keeping wine, a decade or more in most cellars
