98 – James Halliday

“A co-fermented 94/6% blend. The hue is good, although not deep – pinotish. Tim Kirk nails it when he writes of a line of pure spice running through the bouquet and palate – I would simply add ‘and the aftertaste’ because this has superb length and texture, replete with red berry flavours. Clonakilla at its best.”

96 – Tyson Stelzer

“A gloriously fragrant and elegant Clonakilla is the blessing of a classic cool year, brimming with rose petal and pot pourri. A delightful core of morello cherry and wild strawberry fruit glides seamlessly through a lingering trail of powder-fine tannins. It’s set to go down as a long-lived Clonakilla. Drink 2022-2037.”
