Craiglee is one of the most important historic vineyards in Australia, with vines originally planted there in 1863 by one of Melbourne’s founding fathers, James Johnston.  Energy was injected back into Craiglee when enthusiastic agricultural science graduate, Pat Carmody replanted it in 1976.
Brilliant pale straw to straw colour with subtle flashes of green around the edges and a watery hue. Nosing offers up ripe peach and honeycomb aromas followed by hints of bacon fat, butterscotch, crème brulee and spicy nougat. Rich fleshy ripe peach, apricot and honeycomb flavours carry a silky feel with notions of crème brulee, subtle bacon fat and spicy nougat sitting underneath. Nicely measured acidity finishing long, full and creamy textured yet fresh.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 13.5%
