Hero Notes:

Recently described as ‘the most influential Australian wine since Grange’, Clonakilla defied the mainstream winery boom of the 1980s and set-up in the Canberra District near Australia’s Capital to pursue a vision of Viognier-tinted Shiraz.  Owner Tim Kirk was previously contemplating a life in the church as a Catholic priest, however, the call of the vines was too strong.  The result is now an act of devotion in which we can all share: silky, perfumed, fine-boned and beautiful, this is a wine that can display exoticism at the same time as restraint.
