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.
“Any contemporary list of Australia’s greatest red wines must include Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier. It has few peers for elegant style, yet it has great underlying strength of character—the best of both worlds.” – Ralph Kyte-Powell
A warm growing season followed a dryer than average winter. Yields were 20% down, but what we lost in volume we gained in intensity. 77mm of rain in January and 32mm in February were a timely blessing. Come harvest time we picked some of the richest, darkest fruit we have seen at Clonakilla.
Deeply aromatic, opulent and powerfully ripe. Plush tannins and layers of dark fruit deliver a robust palate and serious cellaring potential.
