What the Critics say
'Highly perfumed, pretty, rose hip tea on raspberries, light and sweet brown spice. Beautiful, medium weight and luxuriously slippery texture. Wonderfully easy to sip on showing more of the sweet berries, quite strong in the brown spice department, shows great length with a fresh and cool finish. Despite some rambunctious character it feels seamless and regal. Delightful, and quite the counterbalance to the often more stoic Shiraz release.'
Originally established in the 1860s by one of Melbourne’s founding fathers, James Johnston, Craiglee Vineyard was absent from the Australian wine landscape until it was replanted in 1976 by an enthusiastic agricultural science graduate called Pat Carmody. Now one of Australia’s most highly regarded and awarded wineries, Craiglee is still run with the loving attention of Pat and Dianne Carmody with the occasional input of their sons.
