Review Koonowla Clare Valley Shiraz 2002

89+ points.

Flash and fresh, a modern wine that carries its 14.8% alcohol very well. Spicy shiraz flavours, smooth, but fairly tight structure, with balanced acidity. A great restaurant wine, in that it will go with a wide good range of fine food, and appeal to most people. Accessible yet fine. Without quite the concentration of a truly great wine, but well priced.

And as an extra bonus it’s bottled with screw cap enclosure. Well worth buying. Drinks well now, may warrant slightly higher points with age.
