  • Ignoring the tasting arrangements for the moment (though these are very important in most circumstances), I would say that Roussanne is one of those grape varieties that, while perhaps native to southern France, seems to do well in desert-like conditions that have significantly shorter summers than (mostly) subtropical Texas.Roussanne is one of ...

  • Nine Stones Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2008

    Snoothrank:

    My daughter, Anne's, Nov. 2012 wedding shower weekend. No great shakes, but no complaints from those who tasted/sipped. So they must have liked it, hence the rating. Personally, I did not taste. Read More

  • Clonakilla Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Canberra District Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    $25 direct from winery. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon that was barrel fermented on lees. Very pale lemon colour. Clean youthful aromas of lime blossom, cut grass and passionfruit. Dry, full-bodied white wine with lots of vibrant acidity. Waves of salivating passionfruit and lemon flavours. This is great with antipasto. Drink now. 91/100. Read More

  • Clonakilla Chardonnay Canberra District 2011

    Snoothrank:

    $35 direct from winery. For those familiar with the wines of Clonakilla, this is certainly a different offering. Its existence is accredited to different vintage conditions with a cooler than usual ripening season. Fruit from a high altitude vineyard in Tumbarumba and Murrumbateman. Whole bunch pressed with fermenting on fees in French barrels. ... Read More

  • Clonakilla Pinot Noir Canberra District 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Purchased direct from winery $35, limited to 4 bottles per customer.The first release of Pinot Noir from Clonakilla. To be honest, I didnt even realise there were Pinot Noir vines out in the Murrumbateman region. And I suppose if the climate conditions are conducive for cool climate shiraz, then Pinot Noir fruit should be able to ripen nicely. T... Read More

  • Clonakilla Canberra District Shiraz/Viognier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    $85. 5% Viognier. Uplifiting youthful aromas of dark berries, heavy weighted florals, spice and grilled meats. A med-bodied with with a tight core of fine tannins, and the acidity, well I didnt give a thought about it because I was just enjoying the plush clean, pure fruit flavours and that finish which goes on and on and on A brilliant example ...

  • Clonakilla Shiraz Canberra District O'Riada 2010

    Snoothrank:

    $35. This is actually a blend with 5% of co-fermented Viognier. Attractive perfume of black cherry, dark berries, pepper and forest florals. A med+ bodied Shiraz that I find is coiled tightly at the moment. Youthful plush tannins and lively, cleansing acidity. Rich berry fruit, overall very finely balanced. Wonderful! Drink 2015 2022. 93/100. Read More

  • Clonakilla Viognier Canberra District 2010

    Snoothrank:

    $45. Now were getting into the serious stuff. This Viognier spent 10 months in French oak. Intense, clean aromatics of kamquat, ripe apricot, ginger. Rich and expressive flavours are very well balanced with pristine acidity in this silky textured wine. Lovely. Drink now 2017. 93+/100. Read More

  • Clonakilla Viognier Canberra District Nouveau 2011

    Snoothrank:

    $22. This is the version that doesnt see any oak treatment. A wine that has a steely nature and is uncoiled in its infancy. Variatel characteristics of spicy peach and apricot, broad flavours are rather generous in this straight-forward wine. 88/100. Read More
