Established by scientist Dr. John Kirk in 1971, Clonakilla is a small family-owned estate at Murrumbateman in Canberra District. Today, this James Halliday’s 5-red-star winery produces a handful of top-quality Shiraz wines by John’s son Tim Kirk, who was awarded “Winemaker of the Year” by Gourmet Traveller WINE in 2013. Inspired by the renowned Côte-Rôtie wines of the Guigal family, their flagship wine Shiraz Viognier was described by James Halliday as “an icon wine, one of the best in Australia” . It is also the only wine from Canberra District to be rated as "Exceptional" in Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine, on par with its counterparts Penfold’s Grange and Henschke’s Hill of Grace.

The newest release, the 2016 Shiraz-Viognier displays trademark florals, spices and red fruit. It's voluminous without being weighty, fruity and savory, with licorice, pepper and meaty notes on the long, silky finish. Fans of the style will want to grab extra bottles of this one, as it should drink well for up to two decades. Wine Advocate 95 (2016)
