REILLY'S -- CLARE VALLEY
Reilly's wines we sell
Clare Valley, Australia
The Clare Valley is recognised for producing some of Australia's finest wines and so it was a natural choice for us to establish Reilly's Cottage Wines. We began operations in 1993 as a small producer of fine quality hand-made wines.
We make Reilly's wines on our premises at Mintaro in the Clare Valley using grapes from our 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 colour and flavour. The wine is then stored in French and American Oak hogsheads for one to two years.
Reilly's Cottage Wines' range of award-winning wines includes Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Tawny Port and Riesling. We recommend that you cellar our wines for 5-10 years.
