Clonakilla 'Hilltops' Shiraz 2021
Grapes for the Clonakilla 'Hilltops' Shiraz were selected from four vineyards in the Hilltops district around Young in New South Wales, the Canberra District’s closest neighbouring wine region. The wine is aged for 11 months in Allier oak barriques and puncheons, 15% new, with the remaining barrels varying from 2-5 years old. The wine has signature 'Hilltops' ripe, dark fruit flavours with a deep, concentrated cherry and blackberry character. It has fine-grained tannins and a racy acidity, which allow it to be enjoyed now but also be aged for up to 10 years.
