About

Clonakilla is one of the true icons of the Australian wine scene. Since its inception, it has been one of (if not THE) leading lights of the Australian cool climate wine insurgence. Their Shiraz Viognier is famous. However, the O'Riada, as Campbell Mattinson once observed, "is where the smart money is being spent when buying Clonakilla reds." O'Riada is made from 100% Canberra fruit from the Clonakilla estate and carefully selected surrounding vineyards. The 2015 vintage is one of the most anticipated releases in the wine's history. According to winemaker Tim Kirk "2015, our 40th vintage, was outstanding." With 97 points from James Halliday and 95 points from Campbell Mattinson, this is an exceptional release of the O'Riada and one that, even for this wine, punches well above its weight. If you want Clonakilla in your cellar but aren't regularly quaffing $95 per bottle, the O'Riada is what you need to be buying.

What it Tastes Like

"A strikingly fragrant and perfumed effort from Clonakilla, this wine captures you instantaneously. It is superbly constructed, aromatically fragrant, perfumed and darkly fruited; on the palate spice, superfine tannins and then the finish that just lingers and expands." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
