About Clonakilla O'Riada Shiraz 2017
"I hope and pray that Clonakilla O’Riada Shiraz remains at this price level.
It’s not about me but: I love this wine. It’s built on acidity and spice as much as it is on fruit and tannin. It’s direct, it’s exotic, it’s meaty and floral, but it’s also laced with black cherry and fennel. It has velocity and tension. It is simply a beautiful, modern red wine in the best says of the word(s)." - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
