About

The name Clonakilla needs no introduction, nor does it's benchmark Riesling. Grown on the Clonakilla estate vineyard in Murrumbateman, this, along with Ken Helm's Rieslings have long been the gold standard for Riesling in the region. The 2016 looks like a classic vintage of this wine built for drinking now or in more than a decade's time. This is, as Mike Bennie described it, "a great introduction" to Tim Kirk's house style, Mike describing it as "mineral-charged, tangy, succulent." Looking to get familiar with Canberra Riesling? Then look no further.

What it Tastes Like

"Effortless drinking here, with a high quality feel. Zips along on piercing acidity that drills a zingy hole through the juicy, cool, limey fruit character found in the wine. Aromas are floral, citrussy, lime and kaffir lime leaf, ginger scented, faintly yeasty. Pretty as. Fresh, flirty, then finishes with fine, chalk-meets-crushed-slate vibe. That tight clip to the finish says cellar long." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
