96 points "Tasted this from barrel just over a year ago and was stunned. Sensational quality. Clonakilla has long since made this wine – a straight shiraz, sans viognier, from the estate – but until last year it was blended into the famous Shiraz Viognier that is the estate’s star. The review below is not from the barrel tasting; it’s of a bottle of the wine opened earlier today. It’s just starting to shy off but the quality is exceptional. It’s effusively aromatic but it’s clearly a different wine to the shiraz viognier release. This has notes of coffee grounds and roasted meats – there’s a touch of the famed ‘pan juices’ to this wine. It’s darkly and weightily cherried and plum-shot. Volleys of spice ricochet confidently about. Terrifically fine tannin – it feels hand woven. Simply a classic wine from a classic estate.
