Why do we love this wine?

It’s hard to talk about a wine like the Clonakilla shiraz viognier without repeating what has already been said, or sounding verbous. It’s the flagship wine from an iconic winery that has been leading their region of Canberra District for five decades.

Inspired by the wines of Côte Rôtie, winemaker Tim Kirk started adding viognier to shiraz ferments in 1992, after visiting the famed ‘roasted slope’. Fast forward a couple of decades and the wine in now the pinnacle of the Clonakilla experience and one of Australia’s most noted wines. When wine media are using words like superb, phenomenal and perfection - as they are for this 2018 release - you know they are talking about something special. A top of class wine, in a great year from a producer who is in their prime.
