Craiglee Shiraz 2014 (Sunbury, Victoria) "...violet, blackberry, pepper..."
'WONDERFUL EXPRESSION OF SHIRAZ FROM A DISTINGUISHED SITE.'
"Has the guile that is at the heart of Craiglee style, the flavours fresh, with more red fruit than black, an omnipresent pinch of spice, and a splash of licorice and forest all combining to seduce the senses before you register the underlying intensity and length of the fruit. Tannins and French oak are also present, but it's not until the finish and aftertaste that they leave their mark." - 97 Points, James Halliday
“Violet, black pepper, blackberry, meat and spice, almost into liquorice. Full bodied, tobacco and savoury stuff, perhaps a touch clunky right now, but brighter feel in the mouth with raspberry and spices, and good long finish. Almost ropey tannin here, and it feels very much a vin de garde. Very good, but wait.” - 95 Points, Gary Walsh (Winefront)
