Gloriously fragrant with elegant florals, lush red cherry and raspberry, sage and a pleasant dusting of spice and white pepper. Its so effortless on the palate, sitting squarely in medium weight and offers plenty of freshness - quite unusual for Australian shiraz. On the palate layers of plum, fresh herb and brown spice in addition to the perfume notes. Top tier and seriously undervalued - buy up. Jeremy Muller, FWC.
Pure, unadulterated Craiglee shiraz. Nothing like it. It's the fragrance, the confluence of dark and red fruit, the grind of black pepper, the thyme and its savoury nature. It retains a certain elegance and length across the more medium-bodied palate. Fresh acidity and grainy tannins neatly in tow. Lovely now, even better in years to come. Drink to 2032. 95 Points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday's Wine Companion.
I look forward to Craiglee wines each year. Stone cold classics. A more open weave, supple release strong in raspberry, sweet earth, blackberries on brambles, fennel, pleasing eucalyptus notes with some judicious clove-woody seasoning. Perfume and flavours match. Shimmers and shines in the palate, glossy texture met with a wrap of light, lacy tannins. Almost refreshing in acidity too, so bright, lively and cool. You’d whisper ‘pinosity’ here. A little out of the box for Craiglee in ‘style’, but delightful, so excellent to drink, fine in detail, precise as always. Thanks heaps. Drink 2021-2040, 94 Points - Mike Bennie, Wine Front.
