About The Wine
The name Clonakilla needs no introduction, nor does its 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 the leading lights of the Australian cool climate wine insurgence.
They boast one of the most collectable wines in the country in their Shiraz Viognier, a wine of outstanding quality and consistancy over the last two decades.
Whether Shiraz, Riesling or otherwise, every wine in the Clonakilla stable are considered amongst the benchmark examples in Canberra District.
Quite simply, Tim Kirk and his family-owned estate are one of the true gems in the Australian wine industry crown.
