A cult wine amongst those lucky enough to live near this excellent, but still not as well-known wine region. It's a small boutique winery, so there's sometimes a scramble amongst Canberrans and public servants to get the shiraz viognier

A great example of Aussie Shiraz Viognier but with a more Rhone-like character... the viognier is hidden behind all the spices and earthy characters... a wine to enjoy slowly... ! 95/100

Ah yes, what a joy of a drink. This has the vibrancy and spiciness that has me reaching straight for the word exotic'. It's all cherries and plums, mint and licorice, and while you'd hardly call it intense, it's definitely high in charm. French oak ... Wine Front.

As expected the wine is young and buoyant, with a highly fragrant perfume of red fruit, fresh blackberry, violets, roasted meat and a little tar; the palate reveals the true potential of this superb wine with a cascading array of flavours and thrilli...

Dark shiraz fruit, with blackberry, roasted meat and a gentle spice background; medium-bodied with serious intent, the tannins are ripe, the fruit juicy and the finish, long a savoury; lovely harmony.

Winemaker's Notes:

Clonakilla literally means ‘meadow of the church’ and is the name of the founder’s grandfather’s farm in County Clare, Ireland. Dr John Kirk founded Clonakilla vineyard at Murrumbateman, 40 kilometres north of Canberra in 1971. In 1997 Tim Kirk, the fourth of John’s six sons, took over responsibility for winemaking and generalmanagement. Canberra is fast becoming recognised for its cluster of twenty or so fastimproving small wineries dotted about this higher altitude region of New South Wales. This wine is an intense black-red colour. The aroma shows brooding black fruits,liquorice, spices, a touch of toast from French oak. Full, warm palate. Heaps of extract. Persistent. Has the substance to age - plenty of energy. Demonstrates again the synergy of the Hilltops district in the South Western slopes of New South Wales with the Shiraz grape.
