Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier 2016

Grapes for Clonakilla's flagship Shiraz/Viognier red wine come from two adjacent, family-owned vineyards just outside the village of Murrumbateman in the cool Southern Tablelands of New South Wales. Canberra District is the official geographical indicator for the wine-growing district around Canberra, Australia's capital city. At the winery 25% whole bunches were used in the ferments with the remaining fruit de stemmed and crushed before being added to the fermentation tanks. All parcels were co-fermented with 6% Viognier for a period of four weeks on skins. The wine matured for 12 months in French oak, of which 25% was new with the remainder in a combination of one, two and three-year old barrels. Clonakilla Shiraz/Viognier is a deeply aromatic wine with generous aromas of ripe red berries, roses, violets, and layers of spice. Classically medium bodied with plush tannins that frame the powerfully ripe fruit flavours on the palate. It is restrained yet powerful, with superb length and texture.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
