Bottle Description

Clonakilla means 'meadow of the church' and is the name of the founder's grandfather's farm in County Clare, Ireland. Dr John Kirk founded Clonakilla vineyard at Murrumbateman, 40 kilometres north of Canberra, in 1971 after his scientific knowledge led him to question why vines were not being grown in this area. His research showed that the soil and climate seemed suited to certain varieties.
This Shiraz is made from grapes selected from five vineyards in the Hilltops district around Young on the South Western Slopes of New South Wales. The 2017 vintage was punctuated by good rain at the right times with just the right amount of light and heat in between. Great colour again this year with a surge of rich black fruit through the aroma. There is plenty of ripe tannin driving the palate.Drink now or cellar with confidence for ten years or more.
