Producer: Clonakilla Estate
Clonakilla was the name of the family's farm in Co Clare Ireland. The cool climate of the area gives gentle spices & red berry flavours. This Northern Rhone lookalike is a wonderfully fragrant wine with superb dept and balance.
The 2012 marks a return to the dark fruit flavours that are the Hilltops’ signature, including cherries and blackberries. It has fine grained tannins and a racy acidity. A delight to drink now but 5 to 10 years of lying down will do it no harm.
