2005 Clonakilla Shiraz/ Viognier
"Flat-out gorgeous nose offers intense aromas of raspberry, cherry cola, blackberry, violet and sexy oak spices. Supple, silky and almost weightless but packing huge flavor impact, with fresh strawberry, raspberry preserve, baking spice and mineral flavors expanding through the long, suave finish. The sweetness and purity of fruit here are stunning, as is the wine's balance, which is like that of a grand cru Burgundy. Already delicious but the fresh acidity promises great things with cellaring."
"The brilliant 2005 Shiraz/Viognier reveals a dark ruby/purple hue along with an exotic, flamboyant bouquet of peach jam intermixed with blueberry and blackberry liqueur. Deep and rich with excellent precision, full body, sweet tannin, and decent acidity, it can be enjoyed over the next decade." -91 Points - Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
