James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion:

"The bright hue and perfumed bouquet run true to type for this modern classic, setting the bar for the co-fermented blend several years ago. It has a set of flavours that are unique, and can fool even expert tasters in blind tastings, its cross-thatched flavours (not textures) need careful navigation." Reviewed March, 2015

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front:

"The remarkable run of Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier continues. 95% shiraz/5% viognier. This release has a long life ahead. It’s so firm, so long, and has lots of meat on its bones. It’s savoury and peppery, essentially, but bursts too with black, ripe, soy-infused berries. Power, finesse, complexity and thick ribs of tannin. One thing it is not is sweet; though it compensates with abundant perfume. A roasted, nut-like character appears right there on the finish, like a glyph. Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier usually drinks well from the day of release; this one needs a little cellar time." Reviewed August, 2015

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Viognier is scented of fresh red and black plums, wild blueberries and nuances of violets, pepper, cloves and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with seductive, velvety textured fruit before finishing long and layered. Drink it now to 2024+. "

Product Description:

"The Shiraz Viognier is a selection of our best Shiraz Viognier parcels, crafted from our Murrumbateman vineyard.

"October frost, November hail, a late-January heat wave and April rain. 2014 was a vintage of extremes. The vines took it all in their stride of course and the reduced yield, hot mid-season and cool finish to the vintage produced a wonderfully fragrant, dark-fruited wine, perfectly poised on the mid-point between elegance and power.
