Canberra District Shiraz Blend, Syrah more

Attractive aromas - red and black fruits, florals. The palate is silky, expansive, elegant. Even better on day 2. Reveals bacon fat, charcuterie, violets.

Ready to drink. Dried red/dark fruits, dark chocolate, coffee. Hint of minty herbs. Nice acidity. Doesn't seem to need much aeration.

Just gorgeous. A lovely, ripe and slightly sweet Shiraz. Exactly what I expected this to taste like.

Super drinking. Poise and elegance, restraint and certainty. Looking really good now, but can easily hold for 5+ years.

Deep set cherry and plum. Mid weighted, silky palate. Elegant. A hint of brett perhaps?

Decanted for 2 hours prior to drinking. Nose - red fruit jam, lifted herbs and spices. Palate - developed, tannins, red fruits, all spice, graphite/iron, light bodied, touch sharp at finish. Decent but no more.

Drink up not worth taking up cellar space. Its a middle of the road cool climate shiraz without any of the markers that would qualify it past being a pretty reasonable midweek quaffer.

Light gold, green glints. Subdued or subtle Viognier nose with a touch of oak. Rich and mouth-filling on the palate: it's certainly a textural wine rather than an aromatic one. Very long. 13%, screwcap.

Delicious, but not quite as fine as the Gaillard St Joseph alongside. Testimony to the skill and restraint exercised by Clonakilla that this is refreshing but still with ample, scented fruit.

Getting loads of cherries on the nose today, also some cloves and white pepper. Such a great example of how great cool climate Shiraz can be. A very elegant, complex wine that I look forward to seeing evolve over the next decade.

This is a stunning wine. Still looking youthful deep red. One a bit closed on opening but on the palate this sings. Beautiful fruit definition, silky tannins and long finish. Balance, poise and class. Best wine I have had this year.

{screwcap, 13%} Bright garnet red colour. Fresh youthful nose; I'll go with Talbot's note here; cherry and pepper, pretty and polished, the palate follows, mixing a lean peppery savouriness with cherry-fresh fruit. Would never be mistaken for pinot, despite the descriptive similarities; it's got a dusty tannic richness, with medium acidity, and a lovely cool mien, helped by nicely old-fashioned alcohol and a medium-bodied weight. Lovely balance into the mid-palate, even if the flavours are a bit simple at the moment; the wine's just a babe for now, and should age very nicely over a decade easily.

Not as good as 1 year ago. Acidity dominates over the fruit, somewhat out of balance. Maybe already past its prime.

2012 Clonakilla Viognier

6/14/2015 - G_Talbot Likes this wine: 93 points

Clear, pale, gold with legs.
Clean nose of medium intensity with whiteflower, apricot, white pepper, lemon, fully developed.
The palate is very dry, with medium acid, and low fine tannins (presumably from oak). Medium alcohol (13%), medium body, medium (+) flavour intensity of white pepper, apricot, lemon, and grapefruit pith.
Medium (+) length.

Very Good to Excellent. Excellent typicity, length and balance, and like all Tim Kirk's wines, incredible clean and well made. Perhaps a little restrained due to being a slightly cooler year. Drink now or hold over the next couple of years.
(Screwcap)

Dark ruby with slight bricking at rim. Aromas of charcoal and faint iodine. Definitely showing signs of age. The fruit profile has moved on from fresh blueberries into prunes and dried fig. Still some viognier freshness on the nose and early palate, however the mid palate is very dry. Past its peak, but impressive for a 10 year old entry level wine. If you have any bottles, drink up.

Garnet red. Certainly showing signs of age. Nose of wet gravel and dried fruit, earthy and not particularly appealing actually. Cherry, spice, light cool climate flavours. Long finish. Tasty but feels like I'm a couple of years too late.

Decanted briefly (lots of sediment); two bottles on the same night. This is a good wine, mature and complex, aged cigar, pistachio nut shell, red currant fruit that is slightly dried out. The initial nose has a pineapple/apricot note that I credit to the Viognier. Otherwise it's like a sweeter/riper Barbaresco. To me both bottles presented slightly past peak. Drink now.
