Kirrihill Gleeson & Co Shiraz 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
- Clare Valley
It’s Clare Valley shiraz from a crew that know the dirt and the climate like the back of their hand. Born and bred in the region before starting their own label over twenty years ago, Sean Edwards and Rob Stanway were two young blokes with a dream of creating wines of international standard. Fair to say they’ve achieved that, ringing in their fair share of awards and recognition for their rieslings, cabernets and shiraz. After all, it’s pretty astounding that you can achieve this level of complexity in a wine that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. The wine is inky black in the glass, exploding with dark chocolate, blackberry and interlaced tannins on the palate. Deciding to buy Clare shiraz ain’t rocket science...if you like the style, you’ll love this.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
