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. As seasons go, I’m not sure you can you get better conditions than they had in 2015.
"Easily one of the best editions of this consistently good wine, this has an extra dimension of fruit flavor and richness, plus loads of blackberry and spice. The tannins really sparkle; great balance and depth here. Drink now and for 5+ years. Superb." - Nick Stock
