- Superb cool-climate shiraz
- Great vintage
- Drink now or cellar confidently
Tim Kirk, from his vineyard in Murrumbateman just outside of Canberra, has released a superb set of red wines from the 2015 vintage. O'Riada Shiraz is the little brother to Clonakilla's flagship Shiraz Viognier, one of Australia's greatest red wines and this vintage leaves nothing to the imagination; charry reduction and fragrant spice mix with exotic red and black fruits and melded together with Clonakilla's trademark silk-textured palate. Delicious now and over another ten years
A strikingly fragrant and perfumed effort from Clonakilla, this wine captures you instantaneously. It is superbly constructed, aromatically fragrant, perfumed and darkly fruited; on the palate spice, superfine tannins and then the finish that just lingers and expands.
