Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier 2003
It has been a remarkable journey for Clonakilla. When John Kirk planted the first vines in 1971 he had no idea that his vineyard would one day be celebrated as one of the best in the country. Along the way there have been trials and tribulations as well as moments of unprecendented success. Over time something important has become clear: Murrumbateman and Shiraz are one of those rare combinations in the world of wine that can produce something truly exciting.
The Shiraz Vioginer is a selection of the best Shiraz Viognier parcels, crafted from the Murrumbateman vineyard.
Vibrantly fragrant and spicy; elegant, medium-bodied black cherry fruit; long and balanced. Date Tasted: Oct 2004; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Glossy, perfumed, smoky – a beautiful introduction to a wine. Again, delicious nutty flavours and scents are evident. The palate is then juicy, cherried, sappy, and delicious. In great form, with a great future ahead. Combination of spicy interest and slippery-smooth mid-palate texture is glorious. Rich for a Clonakilla. But still loaded with spice.
