2003 CRAIGLEE SHIRAZ
"Ruby-red. Rich, chocolaty and ripe, with powerful blackberry, cassis and boysenberry aromas strongly marked by notes of tobacco, celery seed, espresso and iron. Wild stuff, with sweet, highly concentrated dark fruit and candied licorice flavors that build and deepen on the palate. This has serious weight and ripeness, a heady quality, and remarkably pure, focused fruit flavors. Finishes with mineral and roasted herb notes accenting the dark berry liqueur flavors. Not for those who insist on grace and delicacy but I loved it." -92 points- Josh Raynolds- International Wine Cellar
"The shiraz is regarded as a wonderful example of southern Victorian red wine. It is regularly included in the Langton's classification of Australia's finest wines, awarded 5 stars by James Halliday and included in his list of classic wines. This wine has white pepper and spice flavours, more intense in cooler years, with red fruits prevalent in warmer years. Subtle oak flavours complement the fruit. The wine ages gracefully and gives pleasure over many years." -Winery
"Craiglee is one of those very special labels, born in the main out of a particular site. Bottles of late 1870's vintages Shiraz, discovered in the original 3 storey gravity fed winery, exhibit the very same white peppercorn character that is the trademark of every vintage of the post 1979 Craiglee. Terroir rules here. Very 'un-typical' of Australia Shiraz, displaying shades of Cornas. The soils are typically dark and, except on old alluvial river terraces, not particularly fertile. Their depth and structure varies significantly from lower level plains to hillsides." -Importer
This scored 88 points in the Wine Spectator.
2006 COLONIAL ESTATE EXODUS CHARDONNAY
"Bright yellow-gold. Powerful, deeply concentrated aromas of buttery apple, pear, yellow plum and butterscotch, with a subtle mineral quality adding energy. Deep and brooding, offering weighty orchard and pit fruit flavors that completely coat the palate. A major mouthful of wine, finishing on a sweet melon note, with impressive length. This was reportedly cropped at less than three-quarters of a ton per acre and is rich and weighty enough to serve with a cheese course." -92 points- Josh Raynolds- International Wine Cellar
"The Colonial Estate is based in the Barossa Valley in South Australia, near to Adelaide. In 2002 we started buying small blocks of vineyards in the northern 'arc' of the Barossa Valley in South Australia, drawn there by 120 year-old dry-grown vines which only a place that has never seen phyloxera can produce. Our whole approach to making wine in Australia has been French influenced, so it is this ethos that guides us. Handpicking, sorting tables, wooden vats, etc separates us from most Australian wineries." -Winery
"Fermentation takes place in a cool-room at 14Â°C and the malolactic fermentation, again in a barrel, was at 50%. The wine is aged on its lees for around nine months, or until the required fruit/weight/oak balance is achieved."
"Attractive straw-yellow robe with golden highlights. Ripe, fresh and creamy, the nose has already a complex pallet of acacia, white peaches, pineapple, and citrus fruit underlined by a subtle hint of oak, the Burgundy barrels providing an extra dimension of toastiness. Crisp and fruity with excellent weight and concentration, the 2005 possesses rich, honeyed flavors and a long aromatic finish." -Importer
