Canberra District Shiraz Viognier 2015

Brief notes. Meaty aromas - very savoury. See previous notes re this being Bryan Martin’s private venture while still working at Clonakilla with their Shiraz Viognier being the benchmark in the country. Love this Northern Rhone style wine. I was expecting pepper but got more spice and charcuterie. — 4 months ago

Premium Riesling 2009

Top shelf Riesling. Aging beautifully. Drank over two days. Love aged Canberra district Riesling. Generally I've found that they need at least a decade to integrate. Balance of citrus fruits and talc. So different from Eden and Clare. This will go another decade easily. — 3 months ago

Ceoltoiri Grenache Blend 2018

A new Cuvée from Clonakilla made in tiny quantities. I’m a long time client and only managed to get one bottle. I will seek out more after this. A GMS (Grenache Mourvèdre Shiraz blend together with small percentages of Cinsault Carignan Counoise and Roussanne). Very herbal on the nose, also dry cherry notes- not surprising when you see the blend. Barb said a discreet perfume with lovely floral top notes. Delicate and ever changing. Like Grandma’s powder drawer. Such an impressive debut from a great winemaker who arguably makes the best Shiraz Viognier blend in the country. An email will be going to Tim Kirk today looking for more. — 5 months ago

Canberra District Shiraz Viognier 2002

From Magnum and shared with elder brother and sister and their spouses. We had a magnum of the 2001, 414 weeks ago on Delectable and it was a “Wow” wine giving it 96 points. This 2002, 8 years later was unfortunately a little underwhelming. This Cuvée is a good example of an excellent wine which can be cellared too long. Back in the day I had many 750ml bottles of the 2002 which were all excellent. I thought being in magnum would carry the day for the 20 years of cellar time but it was all a bit tired. It was still spicy and savoury but the red fruits had dried out largely. Luckily the family enjoyed it but I was happy to drink this when we did. — 7 months ago
