Winemaker Notes

"Potentially stunning, the 2002 Grenache/Shiraz 1919 Block is a blend of 88% Grenache and 12% Shiraz. A Clare Valley fruit bomb, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as pure raspberry, black cherry, and currant fruit, full body, and a layered texture. It will be drinkable upon release, and should last for 7-8 years. Moreover, it has the markings of a top-flight bargain."

Reilly's, Australia
Reilly's began operations in 1993 as a small producer of fine quality hand-made wines. The wines are made on Reilly's premises at Mintaro in the Clare Valley using grapes from their non-irrigated vineyard. The 75-year-old vines are located just outside Watervale and depend solely on rainfall, yielding limited quantities of small delicious berries. The grapes are hand-picked and fermented in open vats, prolonging contact of skins and juice. The fermented wine is then hand basket-pressed. This is a slow process proving last "pressings" which contribute to creating fine wines of intense color and flavor. The wine is then stored in French and American Oak hogsheads for one to two years.

The Clare Valley is actually a series of narrow north to south valleys, each with a different soil type and slightly different weather patterns along their stretch. In the southern heartland between Watervale and Auburn, there is mainly a crumbled, red clay loam soil called terra rossa and cool breezes come in from Gulf St. Vincent. A few miles north, in Polish Hill, is soft, red loam over clay; westerlies blowing in from the Spencer Gulf influece this area's climate.

The differences in soil, elevation, degree of slope and weather enable the region to produce some of Australia’s finest, aromatic, spicy and lime-pithy Rieslings, as well as excellent Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with ripe plummy fruit, good acid and big structure.

Clare Valley is an isolated farming country with a continental climate known for its warm and sunny days, followed by cool nights—perfect for wine grapes’ development of sugar and phenolic ripeness in conjunction with notable acidity levels.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
