五號好酒# 64 - Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz ‏- 連毒舌酒評家Jeremy Oliver也給予95分高度評價!


五號好酒 - Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz 2010 ‏- 連毒舌酒評家Jeremy Oliver也給予95分高度評價!
 
 
澳洲菁英酒莊『Clonakilla』的旗艦酒Shiraz Viognier,在2010年澳洲Langton評鑑中,與Penfolds Grange、Henschke Hill of Grace、Clarendon Hills Astralis等世紀名釀,同列最高Exceptional等級!

 
這款極為風光的老大哥獲獎無數,價值不斐,隨著葡萄藤年歲漸長,他的小老弟Hilltops Shiraz頂峰希哈,風格相同,但品質已經直逼老大哥!

 
釀酒師特別選取Hilltops這個冷涼區塊的葡萄園,其優良的Shiraz品質,展現極度細膩與堅實結構。

 
James Halliday給予94分,稱讚『酒香極為複雜』

毒舌酒評家Jeremy Oliver更給了95高分的高度評價,認為『均衡、滑順、質地高雅』且『清新而悠長』

知名澳洲雜誌酒評Huon Hooke也給了94分

英國Decanter還給了18/20高分!

James Suckling也有93分好評!

Clonakilla於1971年創立,位於澳洲東部坎培拉產區,酒莊風格細緻靈巧,同時融入澳洲迷人的黑色漿果香氣,莊主Tim Kirk說:『The Clonakilla style is about the fruit leading the wood』,漿果氣息帶領著木桶香氣,讓飲用者可以真實感受葡萄酒的原貌。

 

Tim Kirk於1991年時遠赴法國北隆河Cote-Rotie區,拜訪生產『三La』而舉世聞名的E.Guigal酒廠,被如此優雅的Syrah(Shiraz)葡萄酒所震攝,開啟了他想要在自家酒莊釀造這些藝術品的念頭,他也曾於勃根地學習釀造,這些釀造技術節制了澳洲葡萄慣有的狂暴甜膩。

 

細膩酒質也要歸功於Canberra坎培拉的偏屬大陸型氣候,日照充足讓葡萄飽含香氣,日夜溫差讓葡萄生長圓熟又節制,加上葡萄成熟季節溫暖的天氣,讓葡萄可以掛在葡萄樹上慢慢熟成至最適合釀造的狀態。

 

這支Hilltops Shiraz選用Hilltops這個稍冷涼區塊的葡萄園Shiraz來釀造,因氣溫較低,擁有更多細膩表現,充滿黑色漿果與香料氣息,可以感受到低溫給予的節制感,葡萄緩慢生長,擁有極佳的平衡度,2010是較為涼爽的年份,正好漂亮地展現這款酒的細膩特質!

 

Jeremy Oliver:95 points

By daylight the finest wine to appear under this label, this very harmonious and unusually fragrant shiraz has a heady, floral bouquet of sweet small berries, cherries and restrained, fine-grained oak lifted by alluring hints of spice and black tea leaves. It's not hard to imagine a splash of viognier in there somewhere. Long and supple, it's smooth, gentle and very fine-grained, delivering a charmingly willowy presence of vibrant black, blue and red fruits supported by bony tannins, finishing savoury and slightly meaty, with exemplary freshness and persistence.

 

James Halliday:94 points

Full red-purple, not star-bright; the bouquet is complex, with warm spices threaded through dark cherry and blackberry fruit, the medium- to full-bodied palate with ripe fruit complemented by firm tannins and quality oak.

 

Huon Hooke:94 points

Fullish red colour with slightly purple tinge. Subdued pepper spice aromas, shy and a touch reticent, the palate lean and taut, nervy and lacking richness and fruit sweetness. It's bony, skeletal and slightly astringent. Grippy aftertaste. Needs time. A tad disjointed now.
