Expert Reviews

96 points, Tyson Stelzer - Wine Taste

An elegant, cool, spice-laden Clonakilla that I adore! Beautifully floral, swimming in violets, exotic spice sarsaparilla, tiny dark berries and white and green pepper. Taut and edgy with beautifully honed, fineground, granitic tannins. Sensational reflection of a cooler season. Drink 2015-2020. 96 Points.

95 points, James Halliday - Wine Companion

Light, bright crimson-purple; a highly fragrant bouquet of red fruits and subtle spices leads into a medium-bodied palate; here more savoury characters join the red fruit flavours, lengthening the finish and aftertaste.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier began its life after a career defining trip to the Cote-Rotie in the mid 90s which set Tim Kirk on the journey towards producing one of Australia's best Shiraz. Determined to show that Australia could produce elegant but still powerful Shiraz, Tim's work has paid off with his flagship being acclaimed worldwide. In only 15 years, the Shiraz Viognier has attained 'Exceptional' status with Langton's, the highest possible.

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.

There's no question that the 2010 vintage was difficult in the Canberra District but sometimes " difficult can be a good thing. Less hedonostic than recent releases " which isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you have a line of these running in your cellar then this is a really good vintage to include, for its difference as well as for its quality. It's more savoury than sweet, and has more tannin than flesh. But it does not lack fruit power " nor charm. It tastes of fennel and roasted nuts, blackberries and autumn leaves. There's some viognier-derived perfume here but my main impression was a savoury one. It feels sure of itself in your mouth. I suspect it has a beautiful future ahead of it.
