“Plenty of berries and hints of earthiness on the bouquet, lovely mid weight mouthful with yummy plums and red berries. Crisp acidic finish which makes it a great food wine now, or a keeper to tuck away for a few years. Either way, a classy wine.”

"... The Reillys Tempranillo has that soft and supple easy drinking attitude which could easily get you into trouble. On the nose there are gentle aromas of black tea, roast meats and a floral sweetness. On the palate there is more restraint: ripe dark berries, dark cherries, with subtle vanilla spice. The oak is unobtrusive, despite being in French oak for 18 months. Tannins are soft and dusty..."
Max Crus, The Daily Examiner, 4th March 2016
“From Watervale to dry land, they’ve got the full gamut in Clare, and the full temp’ too, the best this year, perhaps even the last too. 9/10.”
