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.
This Shiraz is made from grapes selected from five vineyards in the Hilltops district around Young on the South Western Slopes of New South Wales. In 2018, lower yields and a warm late Summer produced the level of fruit intensity that you see in the greatest years. Punchy dark berry aromas with flashes of red floral tones. Round, ripe and generous in the mouth. Another classic Hilltops Shiraz!
