Kirrihill Single Vineyard Tullymore Clare Valley Shiraz 2013
The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Tullymore vineyard in the North eastern foothills of the Clare Valley. This vineyard has produced medal winning wines ever since the first crop. Grown on deep red loam and quartz volcanic rock on east facing slopes with an elevation of 450 meters makes this one of the best sites in Clare to grow Shiraz. Lifted aromas of blackberry, cassis and olive tapenade dominate the nose. Subtle notes of black pepper and tobacco leaf linger in the background. The palate is rich and full with bright textural fruits. Blackberry and olive tapenade flavours carryover from the aroma and fill the palate with life. Subtle hints of oak, spicy pepper and cassis sit waiting subtly in the back ground making this a very complex and brooding wine. Soft, fine, tactile tannins line the palate providing texture, length and structure to the wine. A wine of amazing poise and energy.
