About the Wine
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 2017 looks like a classic vintage of this wine built for drinking now or in more than a decade's time.
This is, as Campbell Mattinson described it, "Such an enjoyable riesling to drink". Looking to get familiar with Canberra Riesling? Then look no further.
Clonakilla is one of the true icons of the Australian wine scene. Since its inception, it has been one of (if not THE) leading lights of the Australian cool climate wine insurgence. They boast one of the most collectable wines in the country with their Shiraz Viognier and whether Shiraz, Riesling or otherwise, are considered the benchmark for all things Canberra. Quite simply, one of the true gems in the Australian Wine Industry crown.
Canberra is a sleeping giant of Australian wine. The ability of this region to produce world class wines in only a relatively short history is almost second to none in the whole country. With the ability to produce everything from perfumed and tightly wound Syrah, to razor sharp Riesling and a wide array of emerging varieties and techniques, Canberra will be one of the ‘must watch’ wine producing regions in Australia for many years to come.
