There sure is plenty of Gold in these hills – Kirrihill’s that is. This super star Clare Valley producer has, across the last eight vintages, won a jaw dropping 4 Trophies and 18 Gold medals/5 Star reviews. Impressive or what!
Their latest 2019 release is here and this superstar has bolted out of the traps with a 5 Star, 93/100 rating from local critic Sam Kim already. Sam said “Offering terrific fruit purity and intensity, the wine shows dark and purple fruit characters…It’s equally satisfying on the palate, displaying excellent concentration and rounded mouthfeel, backed by silky texture and polished tannins, leading to a lengthy delectable finish.”
In fact here’s a little inside tip as to why we rate these guys so bloody highly (and why they win gong after gong!). Kirrihill actually crush a quarter of ALL the fruit for Clare Valley wines – meaning they get a good chance to check out the best of the best fruit coming in and put it into some of their own labels!
This is a beauty for the money and yet again just simply great bang for your buck. Full bodied, rich, bold and plush style with juicy, red berry fruit sweetness – sheer drinkability, massive deliciousness, it’s just the red to see you through the colder months. For $15.99 this is worth every cent and then some.
