Product Details

Noted champion of the shiraz-viognier style is Clonakilla’s Tim Kirk. He was one of the first Australians to marry the two when, for the 1992 vintage, he blended shiraz with viognier. There has been much fine-tuning since, but what sets this wine apart is its restraint and a structure that's more medium bodied. It’s a beautifully balanced wine with fine, detailed tannins and that lovely spicy-floral note that viognier brings to the blend. The critics loved it: James Halliday awarded it 98 points; Nick Stock, 99.

'This is a shiraz viognier of the highest order with desperate purity of white pepper, whole bunch mixed spice and plum skin, and a super fine, gravelly tannin structure of breathtaking presence, yet unerring finesse. In enduring line, undeviating persistence and sheer, glorious beauty, this vintage sits confidently among the greatest syrahs on earth.'
- Tyson Stelzer.
