Carlei Estate

Carlei Estate Chardonnay Carlei Estate Pinot Noir Carlei Estate Shiraz Carlei Estate RangeCarlei Estate wines represent the pinnacle within our portfolio. They are individual vineyard wines made only in exceptional years, using fruit from very low yielding dry grown vineyards. As a result, they express the unique ‘terroir’ of each site; a combination of climate, soil and aspect that results in each wine having an individual personality. These are only available in very small quantities and are highly sought after.

Carlei Estate Chardonnay
Always a wine of great intensity and power combined with elegance and finesse. Gently pressed directly to French oak barriques, fermentation is allowed to start naturally, with solids and lees stirring adding complexing layers to the wine. These traditional techniques produce a Chardonnay with exceptional character, balance and length. A truly great wine.

Carlei Estate Pinot Noir
A gentle approach respects the fruit; whole berries, indigenous (natural) yeasts, open oak ferments and minimal handling allow the site to express its full personality. A Pinot Noir with benchmark silky, supple texture complimented by fine, ripe tannins. Balance, intensity and persistence are its hallmarks.

Carlei Estate Shiraz
Fermentation and extended maceration in large, open French oak vessels allow this Shiraz to develop a savoury texture and beautiful earthy aromas that compliment the natural spice of Heathcote. Richly flavoured but never over-ripe, a wine that combines power with elegance to provide an intense drinking experience with the ability to age for may years.
