"From Reillys' 1919 Home Block and the St Clare Vineyard, matured in French oak for 18 months. Luscious blackberry fruits are accompanied by licorice and sweet vanillan oak as they sweep across and along the medium to full-bodied palate."
Joelle Thomson (NZ wine blogger), ‘Real wine bargains under $20’, www.joellethomson.com/2016/09
“Big purple colour with big soft smooth tannins, bone dry, shiraz as it should be; cloves, cedar, dark plums and big but beautiful.”
94 POINTS, Nicks Wine Merchants, www.nicks.com.au
“Ripping value Reilly's Shiraz consistently scores 10/10 for richness and concentration. The Reillys Shiraz always impresses with its depth of colour, richness and concentration, even more so given it's entry level pricing. The 2014 opens with spectacular colour displaying an impenetrable inky black core with a very deep dark purple black hue. Inky freshly crushed blackberry aromas combine with dark plum and liquorice over a background of vanillin cedar and confectionary. The palate boasts a level of richness and concentration rarely seen at this price point. Opulent and lusciously textured the palate features decadently rich flavours of ripe blackberries, liquorice and dark plums with underlying vanillin oak and spicy pepper also present. Silky smooth tannins. Long succulent aftertaste of blackberries, dark plum, liquorice and spicy vanillin oak.”
