91 points "It’s a funny thing to say but Clonakilla’s Hilltops shiraz has been the flagbearer of the (Hilltops) region for a decade or so now. Always look forward to tasting it. I’m not raving over this release but I do think it’s very good. Juicy, easy to drink and to like, satiny-textured and not too heavy. Burgundian shiraz, as they say. Cherries and mulberries, integrated toasty/spicy/nutty oak and a sweet, berried, gently stalky finish. Satisfying length. Satisfying, if ight-ish, intensity. Simply, a beautiful wine to drink. Stylish." Best 2014-2020
