Craiglee

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion
"Excellent" (Shiraz) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV

"One of Australia's great Shiraz producers, Pat Carmody carefully and quietly goes about his business crafting wines of wonderful balance, length and gentle power. The Shiraz is spicy and peppery with yummy squashed summer berry flavours and a savoury hint to finish; Cabernet is similarly impressive, with deep, ripe and concentrated cassis notes; and Chardonnay is complex and generous without being too blousy, as many Australian Chardonnays tend to be. Overlook this cellar door at your peril." - Ben Canaider

"A winery with a proud 19th-century record, Craiglee recommenced winemaking in 1976 after a prolonged hiatus. Produces one of the finest cool climate Shirazs in Australia, redolent of cherry, licorice and spice in the better (warmer) vintages, lighter-bodied in the cooler ones. Mature vines and improved viticulture have made the wines more consistent (except 2011) over the past 10 years or so." - James Halliday

      "Another indulgent Shiraz from iconic winemaker Pat Carmody. Black fruits and spices are finely shaped by elements of cedar and florals. The palate delivers fulsome savouriness soft to the touch; beguiling and sturdy. - Wine House
