Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier 2006
Note - there is minor label damage. Please see picture.
The Shiraz Viognier is Clonakilla's flagship, a careful selection of the best of the Shiraz Viognier parcels they craft each year from their Murrumbateman vineyard.
It is though another wonderful release under this label. It’s steely in its structure, smoky and floral and blessed with a gorgeous mix of red and dark fruits. Of course, trademark spice lifts off the wine, and the texture is again silken and smooth. But what’s really taken me with this release is the long, smoky, gunmental-like tannins, which give the wine an overwhelming sense of sophistication. This release will need a good few years to show its best, but it’s another classic. - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front, 95 Points
