About

The 2015 release of this iconic wine is set to be one of the finest in its illustrious history. The result of a near perfect vintage for the Canberra District, Tim Kirk summed up the 2015 thus: "There is more of everything in the 2015. Intensely aromatic with a mysterious energy pulsing through the palate. Insistent and persistent. A grand cru if ever we have made one." The critics agreed with a barrage of feverish reviews hitting the airwaves as anticipation grew over the months leading up to its release. James Halliday awarded it 98 points, Nick Stock awarded it 99 points and Mike Bennie at the Wine Front wrote a sublime piece of prose to accompany his 97 point score. This is one of those once in a generation wines. If you've loved Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier in the past, you'll be smitten with the release and if you've never taken the plunge and spoilt yourself with a bottle or two, this would definitely be the year to do it.

What it Tastes Like

"I’m taken. Gorgeous, silky texture, a symphony of character in fragrance, game meats, herbs, red berries, clove, sweet spice. The palate is incredible – supple, pliant, long, satiny yet etched with the finest tat-work of lacy tannin. It’s savoury, fruit driven, pure-feeling but lifted on fine spicy oak and glossy acidity. In essence, it drinks utterly superbly. It’s next level. It’s a new classic for Clonakilla. Glory be." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
