Clonakilla Canberra District Viognier 2019
John Kirk planted Viognier at Clonakilla in 1986 with a view to having a variety which would give the winery a point of difference. Very few wineries had this variety at the time. Tim Kirk visited the Rhône Valley in 1991 and saw the potential of the variety at Condrieu and Cote Rotie. Since 1992, Clonakilla has been blending Viognier with Shiraz and released their first varietal Viognier in 1998. The Clonakilla Viognier has fragrant aromas of orange blossom and musk with notes of ginger. On the palate, it has a silky texture and refreshing finish.
