“Ancient Country, Inspired Wines: the terroir and winemaking of the Canberra District wine region”

Clonakilla, along with fellow wine producers in the region, has been featured in a new mini-documentary made by Canberra’s own Emma Shaw.

Securing funding from Visit Canberra, Emma teamed up with the exceptional local filmmaker Sammy Hawker, and together they have produced a beautiful film on the Canberra District, its history, its people and of course, its wonderful wines.

Thank you Emma and Sammy for your hard work and commitment to bringing our stories to life.

2018 Shiraz Viognier

There is no doubt the 2018 is one of the great vintages.
A lower than average crop produced fruit with soaring aromas and intense energy through the palate.

“This is phenomenal, so precise and concentrated with such detail and power, delivered with elegance and precision…” 99 James Suckling, Nick Stock

“There’s great intensity as well as elegance here…A delicious wine in a medium-bodied but seriously structured style.” 98 Huon Hooke

“This 2018 may well be the best shiraz released in Australia this year…It’s a superb release…it’s the definition of seamless…We are looking at an ultra-long-term wine here, deserving of prime space in the best of cellars.” 96 Campbell Mattinson

Look out for the announcement of the venues for our 2019 Clonakilla Dinner Series in a couple of weeks.

Warm regards,

Tim Kirk
