Description

Craiglee Vineyard Shiraz with some viognier in it. Huzzah! Justified as depth, volume and just a dribble, virtually. Pretty perfume leads with floral things, pot pourri of dried rose petal base, things like that, suggestions of cherry in the more standard red berry fruitiness, whiffs of clove, white pepper and cinnamon too. Slippery texture finishes with light pucker, shows off just ripe, gently sweet fruit character and a strong sense of spice than the bouquet. It feels compact but easy in its textural waltz, kind of luxurious but also svelte. It’s really beautiful, and beautiful drinking. SO much charm. 94 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

The 2016 JADV is medium to deep red. Nose of violets, cherries, roses, spicy notes and a hint of apricot. The front palate is silky and velvety thanks to the Viognier. Great length with a seamless palate, fine firm tannins and a lingering after taste. Lovely to drink right now, but as always with Craiglee wines, it will age beautifully. Winemaker, Pat Carmody
