"Shiraz only devotees should break their oaths to experience this Clare Valley belter.
Reillys continue to impress, right across their range of value priced offerings that over deliver in every respect.
This is their best Cabernet to date, bursting with a core of ripe blackcurrant that hits the palate with a bang. Matured for 18 months in French oak hogsheads, fruit for this Cabernet is sourced from Reillys St Clare and Leasingham vineyards.
Excellent colour saturation displaying an inky black purple core with a very dark purple tinged hue. The nose exhibits lifted ripe blackcurrant and black cherry scents with some liquorice, cedar and spice end notes following.
Decked out with delicious, fully ripened blackcurrant flavours alongside some black cherry and liquorice with underlying cedary tobacco like flavours and spices emerging on the back palate.
This is Cabernet for Shiraz drinkers! Superb depth and richness at this price with fine grained, slightly chewy tannins. Long ripe blackcurrant, liquorice, cedary tobacco and spice."

93 POINTS, James Halliday, www.winecompanion.com.au, tasted 14/11/13
"Medium to full purple-red; many of the Reilly's wines have an element of rusticity, but here the volume of juicy black fruit carries the day on the long, medium-to-full, full-bodied palate, the tannins are evident but balanced. Exceptional value."

"Shared with friends after the tasting it was very well received and I was chided for only giving 93 points, great value..."

Cane Cut: Traditional wine making method whereby the canes on the vine are cut at optimal ripeness and the fruit is left to dry on the cane, increasing the sweetness and flavour intensity of the grapes.
After drying for 20 days on the cane, the best of our Riesling was hand-picked to create this luscious wine.
With lifted floral aromatics, the delicate palate is rich with flavours of orange marmalade, honey and a tang of lime zest on the finish.
