Clonakilla Canberra District O’Riada Shiraz

There’s an entire spice kitchen woven into the folds of O’Riada: Bouquet garni, bay leaf, paprika, pot pourri and layers of white pepper over its crunchy red cherry and strawberry fruit. With a honed focus, this is a savoury and tightly structured expression of shiraz viognier, riding on firm rails of cool vintage acidity. Ultra-fine, mouthfilling tannins lend assured structure and control to its extroverted complexity. $35 direct.
