Reilly's Dry Land Shiraz 2004

This wine is a fairly typical warm climate "bigger" style of Clare Valley shiraz. Purple in colour, its aroma tells of spices, chocolate, plums and cola. Spices, nice length, plums and almost unexpectedly firm acidity rounds out a balanced palate. Fit for purpose. 89 points (very good)
