    May 4, 2019 - Just a super drink right now. Balanced. Precise. Long. Plenty of fruit here still. Lovely.

    August 9, 2018 - Brilliant - just needs more time. Comparatively big for a Clonakilla and still needs to mellow and develop a bit more. Should be great in another 5!

    December 30, 2017 - Nice balance to the wine. Blue and black fruits, with lifted notes of the viognier. It is still very fresh and would benefit from a few more years to mature.

    August 10, 2017 - Very true to style, this perhaps lacks the generosity of other vintages. Has that Northern Rhone mineral characteristic. Still OK but not my favourite Clonakilla SV

    June 3, 2017 - Tasted alongside a sublime Ermitage from Ferraton (2006 Le Meal). A touch more raspberry and green pepper on the nose, milk chocolate, cherry and more pepper in the palate. Acidity and tannins feel a little higher, but nice chocolatey cherry finish.
    A little more disjoint in comparison with the Ermitage, but certainly fine.
