Sure, Shiraz is the hero in the Clare Valley in most people's eyes. But look a little closer and it's hard to go past some of the structured Clare Cabs too - just like this gold medal winning hero.

Here's Kirrihill pulling out a nicely balanced example of the regional style too. It's go dark fruit, plenty of tannins and a real heartiness. It's red wine with guts (and all the better for it).

How's it taste?

Our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of blackberry, cassis and orange peel, with hints of chestnut and forest floor. The palate shows vibrant, ripe blackberry flavours and nutty toasted oak. Fine chalky tannins and fruit are carried through the length of the palate

How was it made?

The fruit from each vineyard site was picked independently of the others, when it reached an optimum level of flavour. Each parcel was then cold soaked for five days and fermented in 10 tonne open-top fermenters. Daily pump overs maximised extraction of colour, flavour and tannins from the berries. Parcels had contact with French and American oak for maturation. The winemaking team tasted each individual component before creating the final blend, which consists of only the highest quality components

Who made it?

Proudly celebrating the Clare Valley, Kirrihill draws on expressive individual vineyard sites across the region as well as selected cool climate pickings from the Adelaide Hills. Working with nature during the critical ripening period and harvest is a determining factor in premium winemaking. The Kirrihill Winery is the perfect platform, allowing flexibility in caring for the smallest parcel of handpicked fruit while effortlessly handling a selection of classic regional and alternative premium grape varieties. The multi award winning Kirrihill Vineyard Selection Series and the Regional Range wines are the culmination of years of thoughtful trialling and careful fruit selection. Hardly an overnight success however the Kirrihill wine quality continues to be a wonderful “serendipity” moment for wine lovers.
