About The Wine
With Clonakilla losing its entire 2020 crop to smoke taint, Tim Kirk went further afield to source fruit, and old friends at Yalumba came to the rescue with a great parcel of rich Eden Valley fruit.
The result is the first ever Clonakilla Eden Valley Shiraz - a super-perfumed, concentrated red with a smooth creamy palate.
The Clonakilla quality stamp is all over the wine, even though it is a richer, riper version of their usual NSW Shiraz releases.
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 is considered among the benchmark examples in Canberra District.
Quite simply, Tim Kirk and his family-owned estate is one of the true gems in the Australian wine industry crown.
