    December 8, 2018 - Rather dull, muted red fruits with little development. Could be an off bottle so I'll reserve judgement.

    February 17, 2018 - Drinking nicely. No hurry but not sure will improve much either. Minimal hints of viognier, some nice charred characteristics coming through with air.

    April 10, 2015 - Mini Verticals - Tasted Blind: Raspberry, spice, violet and some blackberry. Mild palate, doesn't overdo the fruit power but still has some good weight. Seems well balanced and while it is ticking along nicely, a couple more years will be of benefit.

    May 30, 2013 - Still showing rather young. Should perhaps have had a splash in the decanter. Intense, dark, mulberry fruit, lovely tannins, decent length. Just needs a little more time to come together as acid stood out a touch. Well integrated oak. Good wine.

    April 14, 2013 - Lovely purple colour. Quite a subdued nose for a Clonakilla shiraz. In the mouth, blackberry and other dark fruits, some red, spices, aniseed, black pepper. Fine tannin, excellent balance. Very long. Drank this over two nights. Night two was superb, night one an echo of that but lacking Wow, so my advice is leave this alone for a few more years. Was actually quite disappointed on night one as the '09 SV is my all time favourite wine and even the '09 Hilltops is right up there. Night two restored my faith.
