Clonakilla

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion, "the quality of wines is exceptional" - James Halliday
2013 Gourmet Traveller Winemaker of the Year (Tim Kirk)

"new benchmark for cooler-climate Australian Shiraz, and a serious rival for the classiest Côte-Rôtie." - Max Allen, Decanter Magazine 2002 (re: Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier)

"The indefatigable Tim Kirk, with an inexhaustible thirst for knowledge, is the winemaker and manager of this family winery founded by his father, scientist Dr John Kirk. It is not at all surprising that the quality of the wines is exceptional, especially the Shiraz Viognier, which has paved the way for numerous others, but remains the icon. Demand for the wines outstrips supply..." - James Halliday

"Clonakilla is a small, family winery dedicated to making distinctive, handcrafted wines. Our wines are made in limited quantities and can be a little hard to find. They are worth the search. We make a range of wines, but our speciality is wines made from two varieties which have their original home in the Northern Rhone valley in France: Syrah (Shiraz in Australia) and Viognier. Our flagship is a Shiraz Viognier blend."- Clonakilla
