95 points "If you have a Clonakilla collection on the go then you must add this wine to it. It's a Clonakilla syrah minus the viognier - this syrah usually makes its way into the Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier icon wine. Whole bunches and wild yeasts have been used and of course it's been matured in the best French oak. It's quite a fascinating wine. It's lighter than you might expect, intensely focussed, juicy and earthen and persistent. It has elements of bitterness and elements of gunmetal, though the main strike is of cherried, cranberried fruit. For all its lightness it still manages to make a powerful statement, mainly because it's so articulate and defined. I suspect that in twenty years time it will be mesmerising. Drink: 2016-2028. 95 points. " Best 2016-2028
