2012 Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz

Hailing from Canberra, Clonakilla is one of Australia's finest shiraz producers. As their entry level red, the Hilltops Shiraz offers excellent value for money and is a great example of a restrained cool climate Australian shiraz.

The nose shows a hint of stalk with notes of cherry and blackcurrant.  Very nice and refined, the perfect ripeness for my taste .  Nice length on the palate with some lively fine tannins.  At this price point I might not buy again, but would happily have a glass if it were on a wine list.
