Expert Reviews

Gold & 96 Pts - James Halliday, July 2008.

Exceptionally powerful, rich and concentrated; a full-bodied, lush, velvety texture and mouthfeel; black fruits and spice seem to subdue the viognier lift, but this is an exception tasted just prior to bottling.

96Pts - Ranked 1 of 19 NSW Shiraz - Houn Hooke

Another excellent season resulting in an outstanding wine. Ripe blackberry and cassis aromas, turning richly sweet and full-bodied in the mouth, with an almost syrupy, juicy fruit lushness. A sunny tasting wine. Still ascending. A gorgeous drink.

Winery Profile

Through the seventies and eighties the Cabernet and Shiraz were blended together in traditional Australian style. With the 1990 vintage we decided to bottle the wines separately. Our first Shiraz went on to win two gold, one silver and two trophies in only three showings.

In 1991 Tim travelled to the Rhone valley in France. There he tasted a number of impressive Shiraz wines including Marcel Guigal’s single vineyard blends of Shiraz and the rare white grape Viognier. Inspired by those wines we began including a small amount of Viognier in our own Shiraz as of 1992. We incorporated other winemaking approaches borrowed from Rhone valley and Burgundian winemakers: inclusion of whole bunches in the ferments; pre-ferment maceration; warm natural ferments and maturation in high quality French oak barrels.

We worked harder in the vineyard to open up the vine leaf canopies, limit yields and produce grapes with riper flavour profiles. We began to understand that in planting Shiraz on decomposed granite soils in the cool, continental climate of Murrumbateman we had found something important. It became clear to us that the Canberra District had the potential to become one of Australia’s great Shiraz regions. The Clonakilla has received numerous accolades over the last fifteen years and many fantastic critics views.

Clonakilla style is essentially about fruit leading the wood. It is a highly aromatic wine with ginger, white, pepper, apricot fruit, some savoury French oak nuances and fine slinky/boney tannins.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
