95 points "I stopped off at Clonakilla last Saturday night and got the chance to taste the upcoming Shiraz Viognier (due for release in September). I’ve tasted it again since getting home. This wine has only recently been bottled, and as a result took quite a bit of time to show its strength. It is though another wonderful release under this label. It’s steely in its structure, smoky and floral and blessed with a gorgeous mix of red and dark fruits. Of course, trademark spice lifts off the wine, and the texture is again silken and smooth. But what’s really taken me with this release is the long, smoky, gunmental-like tannins, which give the wine an overwhelming sense of sophistication. This release will need a good few years to show its best, but it’s another classic. Drink: 2014-2023. 95 points. " Best 2014-2023
