Kirrihill 2009 Clare Valley Cabernet

Like the Kirrihill shiraz it's a bargain and is composed of fruit from a variety of vineyards. In fact the back label makes an interesting point that the Clare Valley shouldn't be regarded simplistically as a single region as it contains 5 distinct sub districts with quite different profiles.
Like the shiraz this is a rich, rounded fruit driven red that's only spent a mere 6 months on a mix of French and American oak.
Cellar for 5 years or so by all means but this one is ready to enjoy now.
Our Price: $13 per bottle by the doz
