Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier 2019, Canberra District, NSW

by | Jan 25, 2022

6% Viognier in this vintage, which was a milestone for Clonakilla being it’s 50th. Nose driven by primary fruits of cherries and plums. Medium bodied wine with concentrated cherries, darker black fruits and a hint of cola. Silky front palate as well as some dry chalky powdery tannins that build in the mouth to produce a long firm finish.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
