Lovely wine. Unpretentious in the best of ways.
About The Wine
This is the lighter, fresher side of Viognier not often seen.
We've all had the big, ripe, blockbusting styles of Viognier, and some of them, sad to say have made more enemies than friends. This is a different beast altogether.
Tim Kirk has managed to bottle the essence of Viognier without the 'heaviness' so often associated with the grape.
No oiliness here. Just a bucket load of freshness, vitality and a lot of casual drinking pleasure.
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.
