Pretty Good

This wine is vintage 2013, a blend of two varieties: Grenache and Shiraz. These were harvested from Reilly’s St. Clare Vineyard in Clare Valley. The wine has an alcohol level of 15% and is medium ruby-red in colour, a lively medium-bodied wine with vibrant flavours. The bouquet is bright and buoyant on the nose with spice, ripe black cherries and raspberry fruits complemented by hints of white pepper. The palate is fresh and vibrant with spicy red berry fruits, confectionary flavours and finely integrated oak supported by velvety tannins, ending in a clean refreshing finish with peppery spice. A wonderful blend, this wine is best served chilled and goes well with Mediterranean-style dishes, spiced pork fillet, chicken casserole and spaghetti Bolognese.

WINERY INFORMATION

Giving in to his passion for winemaking, Justin Ardill and his wife, Julie, purchased in 1993 a modest parcel of a 12-acre vineyard in Watervale. They also purchased a simple cottage which was to be their cellar door and initial winery. This is how Reilly’s Winery was born. In 1994, they had their first vintage of Riesling, Shiraz and Old Bushvine Grenache. In the following years, the duo purchased a few more vineyards and planted more grape varieties, all while actively sourcing their fruit from premium grape growers in the area.
