Craiglee of Victoria's Sunbury is one of Australia's leading cool-climate red wine producers in Australia. While their Shiraz rightfully gains plenty of attention, Craiglee Cabernet Sauvignon is consistently nothing short of spectacular.
This 2017 Craiglee Cabernet Sauvignon is typically fragrant with lovely blackberry and red fruit aromas. The medium-bodied palate is balanced and approachable with nice ripe black fruits, savoury undertones and velvety tannins. A beautifully poised cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon that will please the many Craiglee fans.
Review of the 2016 vintage Craiglee Cabernet Sauvignon below;
"94 Points. 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. Tasted : JUL19 13.5% alc. Screwcap Drink: 2019 - 2030+" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
Originally established in the 1860's 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 his wife Dianne (with the occasional input of sons Dave & Tom)
The flagship Craiglee Shiraz is listed in the Langton's Classification of Australian Wine VI with an Excellent rating - "Classic Australian wines of consistent Excellence".
