Professional Wine Reviews for Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier Red Blend 2014

Rated 96 by Decanter
A deep-set nose, brooding almost. This has beef stock, high quality dark chocolate and cocoa powder notes, opening to reveal a wealth of ripe and bright summer berries, dark plums and a granite-like layer; this has impressive aromatic depth. The palate instantly captures with fine layered tannins that coat the mouth. Flavors of chocolate coated black cherry, pepper, kirsch and plum liqueur roll playfully through. This is so complex, so entrancing and masterfully executed. Great wine. Best from 2022. (Suckling)

Additional Information on Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier Red Blend 2014

Winery Clonakilla

Country: Australia

Whilst most of Australia consists of arid deserts and dense bushland, the oceanic coasts to the south of the country have a terrain and climate ideal for vine cultivation and wine production. It took several decades of failed attempts at the end of the 18th century in order to produce vines of a decent enough quality for making wine, but since those first false starts, the Australian wine industry has continued to grow and grow. Today, wine production makes up for a considerable part of the Australian economy, with exports in recent years reaching unprecedented levels and even overtaking France for the first time ever. Whilst the greatest successes in regards to quality have been the result of the Syrah grape varietal (known locally as Shiraz), Australia utilizes several Old World grapes, and has had fantastic results from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Riesling, Chardonnay and more. As the Australian passion for locally produced wine continues to develop, wineries have begun experimenting with a wider range of grape varietals, meaning that nowadays it isn't uncommon to find high quality Australian wines made from Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Viognier, amongst many others.
