"An opulent vintage has made this a higher alcohol style than the norm for this label, making it an earlier-drinking priority. A lick of Viognier adds a perfumed lift to its fine-grained white pepper and grippy plum skin palate."

Huon Hooke 92 points!"This is nicely priced at half the cost of Clonakilla's flagship shiraz viognier. Fresh, lifted spice and red fruit aromas with a lick of mint. Medium-bodied and supple, balanced and delicious, it drinks beautifully now but could also be cellared."
Huon Hooke, Gourmet Wine Traveller Feb/March 2011 92 points!"Deep garnet purple colored, the 2009 O'Riada Shiraz (co-fermented with 5% Viognier) has a fragrant nose of black raspberries, crushed black cherries, dark chocolate, cloves and just a hint of torn mint leaves. The palate is nicely balanced with a medium to full-bodied, crisp acid, great concentration and a long finish that straddles spice and fruit."
