Craiglee Shiraz 2012

Craiglee's shiraz is a wine that I wish I had more of in the cellar.  It is a Victorian cool climate classic and can age very well.  This is the 2012 vintage; the grapes are estate grown in outer suburban Sunbury and the back label refers to "natural processes" being in use.  Unfortunately, their website offers little in terms of detail from there.  In the glass, the wine has pepper, plum and bramble fruit aromatics.  The palate is an exercise in plums and plum skins.  Restrained, but not overly so, this is a typical cool climate shiraz and a good release from Craiglee.
