"Ranked #3 for 2015 Shiraz Blend tasted from Australia." Huon Hooke
Made by the Clonakilla Wine-making Dream Team!
The extraordinary partnership of viticulturalist Brian Mullany with winemakers Tim Kirk and Bryan Martin has resulted in a run of notable wines that have produced exciting results at many Wine Shows across Australia.
The 2015 vintage was once again well suited for growing Shiraz in the Hilltops. The wine is best described as being slightly more intense than the the previous vintage due to a drier season which resulted in smaller berries. The grapes were slightly riper and the resultant wine shows plum, blackberry and liquorice characteristics - closely related in style and character to the highly appraised and awarded 2010 vintage.
"Very spicy, peppery and slightly forward aromas; fragrant, whole-bunchy, elegant wine with very fine tannins. Violet floral nuances. Lovely elegant style. 8/6/2016. Ranked #2 of 24: 2015 Shiraz Blend tasted from Australia." Huon Hooke
