Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Full bodied with rich supple fruit, this wine has been open fermented and matured in French oak for 18 months. Mouth filling flavours of red and black berries with hints of mocha and pepper. A long lingering finish completes this quality wine."

Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2018
5 Stars, Best Buy & Number 4, Cuisine Australia Shiraz Tasting 2019
Reilly's Clare Valley Shiraz has picked up many fans here at Vino Fino over the last year or so and this 2016 vintage has picked up a Gold Medal at the NZIWS, just as did the 2014 & 2015 and now has a 5 Star Cuisine rating as well, so something has to be said about consistency. A gorgeously big, rich an all round satisfying Shiraz.
NZIWS 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"It's saturated with blackberry and plum jam flavours with mixed spice and cocoa notes compounding the pleasure. Opulent and superbly weighted, offering formidable fruit richness and a velvety flow."
5 Stars, Best Buy & Number 4, Cuisine Australia Shiraz Tasting, June 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Generous and warm with a bouquet of sweet baking spices. The dark berry fruits flesh out the midpalate and are counterpointed with vanilla and peppercorn. Beautifully structured with great balance."
