The Shiraz Viognier is our flagship, a careful selection of the best of the Shiraz Viognier parcels we craft each year from our Murrumbateman vineyard.
“The best vintage made at Clonakilla to date! Perfection!” – Nick Stock – JamesSuckling.com
A hail storm on January 9 gave us plenty to worry about, reducing what was already a small crop. Mercifully, the vines recovered well. A brilliant ripening season followed, marked by a run of gorgeous weather in the crucial late Summer/early Autumn.
“The 2018 Shiraz Viognier is a cracking wine, one of winemaker Tim Kirk’s best.” – Huon Hooke
Opulent aromas of roses, violets and layered spices, ripe berries of every hue. Perfectly formed tannins frame complex fruit flavours across the palate. This wine will age magnificently.
