What the Critics say
'Satiny, pure, elegant and seamless. It’s just medium weight, touches the top line messages of Lunchtime Claret but is more elegant, finer, dials in more detail. A feature is its svelte texture, light succulence, cool and fine acidity, and then you notice the blue fruits, heather characters, with subtle, savoury brined black olive, pepper and bay leaf chiming in. All up, great length, fine tannin profile, very fine-feeling in general. An outstanding wine.'
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.
