"Deep crimson-purple; unlike the colour, the moderate alcohol gives no clue about the wine, full to the brim with saturnine black fruits, the tannins part of the wine's DNA; says Tim Kirk on the back label 'Ten years in a cool cellar would do it no harm at all', my only question being what about 20 years?"

"Licorice, black cherries, a noticeable hit of viognier, a gentle lift of mint. This is a soft, generous wine, ready to rip now but with the balance and tannin to see it mature for many a year. If you've enjoyed Clonakilla's Hilltops shiraz in the past, this one's a no-brainer. If you've never tried it; this would be a good place to start."
