    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.

    Murrumbateman’s cool, continental climate and decomposed granite soils are perfectly suited to Riesling. The 2023 season saw the long tail of La Nina deliver a cool, rain-soaked spring and the latest harvest since 2011. Genuine summer heat finally arrived in January followed by a (mostly) sunny autumn. The warmth made all the difference. Bright floral notes and citrus fruit power here. Drink now or cellar for up to 20 years and watch it develop lime and toast characters with age.

    Pale colour and an intense floral, yeasty, jasmine-like fragrance, extremely lifted perfume of a cool-year riesling. It's also delicate and fine in the mouth, with a touch of well-judged sweetness. A thoroughly beautiful riesling, lovely now and destined for a bright future. This off-dry style suits the cool, late vintage, perhaps. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 95 Points.
