*** Matthew Jukes 100 Best Wines of 2013***
***Decanter Magazine Top 10 Shiraz in Australia***
Country: Australia Region: Canberra District
Vintage: 2012 Colour: Red Style: Dry
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.
Ageing Potential: 5-7 Years
Superb pepper, red fruits and violet aromas. Ultra-fine texture, smooth and gentle tannins and a seamless finish. Remarkably complex for such a young Shiraz. A great example of this label.
