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.
"Craiglee Shiraz garners all the attention but the chardonnay can be very good/excellent.
This release is beautifully balanced. Integrated spicy oak through white peach and citrus. Oatmeal to the aftertaste. Elegance personified."
