WINE OF THE WEEK:
Reilly’s Shiraz 2008 – Awesome Clare Valley producer who has been making some great value wines for well over a decade. The first wine I had of theirs was the Dry Land Shiraz 2001 way back in 03/04. It was love from then on in.
The key to Reilly’s success is they have some old vineyards that produce concentrated and dense wines that have power but not sweetness. This allows their wines to age gracefully, if you can keep away from them.
This black label shiraz is an more ‘entry level’ easy drinking style normally. However, 2008 was a warm vintage and they declassified a large amount of the old vine fruit and put it into this wine. Which is why it is such great value.
$17ea – cheaper by the dozen.
