2021 Koerner The Clare Red Wine- 94 points - Campbell Mattinson review (Halliday)
A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, grenache, malbec, carignan and sciacarello. It pulls all the right levers in all the right ways. It's medium in weight and classic in style, in that blackcurrant, mint and choc flavours are the main drivers, but there's attitude here, too, most of it via complex herb and tobacco-like notes, though the wine's 'natural' free-flowing feel is also a key aspect. This wine does not lack flavour and yet it feels like a drink rather than a meal, if that makes sense, with this level of refreshment. It's very good.
94 points - Silver
