Clonakilla literally means ‘meadow of the church’ and is the name of the founder’s grandfather’s farm in County Clare, Ireland. Dr John Kirk founded Clonakilla, 40 kilometres north of Canberra, in 1971. This wine has a tremendous depth of red/black colour. The Viognier adds a rose petal lift to the perfume and a touch of softness on the palate, whilst the Shiraz provides the power and spice of the ripe, rich fruit. 

 

Aromas of violets, rose petals, raspberries and cracked pepper. Classically cool-climate in style, it has a gentle, spice-laden, medium-bodied palate with feather-fine tannin. Perfect with herb crusted medium rare sirloin steaks.

 

"The bright hue and perfumed, spicy red berry bouquet run true to type for this modern classic, setting the bar for the co-fermented blend many years ago. It has a set of flavours that are unique, and can fool even expert tasters in blind tastings, its cross-thatched flavours need careful navigation to decide whether it's from Cote Rotie or Canberra." - 96pts, James Halliday
