Kirrihill process fruit for some of the great names in Australian wine, as well as smaller local boutique producers who are behind Clare Valley's most praiseworthy efforts. Kirrihill retain the pick of crop for their own label. To create a full bodied style, Shiraz grapes are selected from three distinct subregions of Clare Valley, the Edwards family Ballingarry property in Armagh to the northwest of township Clare, the prestigious Tullymore vineyard to the northeast and eminent Schobers Road site at Auburn near the southern end of the Valley.
Kirrihill work closely with the best growers to ensure that fruit meets the standards required for the highest quality wines. The parcels are all picked and vinified separately in open top fermenters with regular pumpovers and drain and returns to maximise the extraction of colour, flavour and tannins from the skins. The active wines are pressed off for malolactic and a term of age in a mix of French and American oaks to enhance complexity and soften the tannins. Batches are then assembled to achieve a balance of flavour, regional character and sound structure. The objective being to create a wine which can best demonstrate the captivating charm of the finest Clare Valley Shiraz.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red colour with purple hues. An enticing nose, black pepper notes and berry fruit fragrances are complemented by the lithe cedaryness of oak. The palate is chock full of sweet blackberry and plum fruit flavours, hints of chocolate and exotic spice are supported by a length of elegant tannins and framed by a supple scaffold of integrated oak.
