14%, screwcap, non organic, $25
This vintage of Clonakilla's Hilltops Shiraz continues the trend of delivering high quality wine at a very reasonable price (a trend that began with its flagship Shiraz Viognier, which could easily command a three figure price tag given the massive demand). The palate showed vibrant fuit intensity with blackcurrants and spice. It had impressive balance and nice length. Another great example of cool climate shiraz crafted by Tim Kirk. I really liked this wine - 94.
