Clonakilla O’Riada Canberra District Shiraz

“A celebration of spice,” proclaims the bottle, and this it is! Laced with white pepper, potpourri, curry and exotic spices of all kinds, it’s a tangy and crunchy style, with fine, textural, spicy tannins holding everything in place. Wonderful persistence and harmony make for an alluringly exotic and enticing wine that’s difficult to resist before it’s even been released. $33 at Wine Emporium.
