A long time customer favourite, Reillys R Shiraz never fails to over deliver. Produced from a blend of the best fruit off the 18 year old St Clare vineyard and a parcel from the Home Block, the fruit from the 50 year old dry grown Home Block vineyard, making up around 20% of blend, adds depth to the wine. All parcels of fruit are basket pressed, then the wine spends 18 months in French oak barrels.

A rich, bold Clare Shiraz delivered with Reilly’s trademark extravagance.

Dense saturated inky black heart with a very deep black dark red hue. Heady scents of liquorice, ripe blackberry and black cherry engulf the nostrils with some vanillin cedar, scorched earth and pepper notes also evident. Bold, rich and concentrated, the flamboyant palate is drenched in liquorice, ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit. Imparting a muscular feel to the back half is a sturdy tannin structure with some vanillin cedar, scorched earth and subtle mocha accents adding further interest. Excellent power with a burst of blackpepper lingering through the long sumptuous yet quite robust finish.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 15.5%

Other Reviews…..
A sumptuous offering, the perfumed bouquet shows dark fruit richness, toasty oak, warm spice and mocha characters. The palate is equally satisfying with awesome weight and plump mouthfeel, gorgeously enhanced by plush texture and loads of velvety tannins. At its best: now to 2035.
