Clonakilla 2008 Shiraz Viognier

Tim Kirk makes the benchmark wines of this blend in Australia; wines that have glorious ripe fruit aromas, intensity on the palate and the potential to cellar for a decade or more. You’ll find a spectrum of flavours here; from dark and red berries to herbs and Asian spices to cool-climate pepper. This is a big, powerful wine with plenty to say but is also has silky softness on the palate that gives it immediate appeal – although it will doubtless improve with age. Stunning! $85.
