Craiglee Shiraz

Craiglee Shiraz 2015

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 2015 Craiglee Sunbury Shiraz is one of their finest yet and is already drawing plenty of attention. Aromatic and impeccably structured; the intensity of flavour, quality oak and lively acidity ensures this is a wine with a long life ahead of it.

"96 Points. I’d have Craiglee on my list of Australia’s best Shiraz for sure, except they’re such quiet achievers, you might forget to add them. Blackberry, boysenberry, spicy biscuits, a dash of pepper, white flowers. It’s medium-bodied, fresh mixed berries (raspberry in particular), distinctly minerally acidity gives it a water-coloured texure, then comes a bold smudge of fine graphite tannin to underline. Has a wonderful transparency, though it does have depth of fruit to go. Finish is well-defined, savoury/spicy, and very clean and long, that beautiful tannin still gripping as it goes. Tasted: Jul19 Alcohol: 14% Price: $70 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2021 - 2035+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

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
