For the Clonakilla 2012 dinner series we conducted a really enjoyable set of dinners investigating the age-worthiness of Clonakilla wines at some fine dining establishments around the country.
We started each dinner with a glass or two of the 2012 Viognier Nouveau. This has proven to be a very successful wine for us. Built on the (correct) assumption that sometimes you just want a drink, something that is neither heavy nor intense. Just a nice bright fresh glass of wine that hits the spot without asking too much of you.
With the first course we served a bracket of Rieslings. The vintages varied over the dinners but the most common combination was 2002, 2006 and 2012.
