2008 CLONAKILLA SHIRAZ VIOGNIER1st April 2010 ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE
The 2008 Shiraz Viognier is one of the finest vintages that Iâ€™ve tasted of this wine. Co-fermented with 6% Viognier, it was matured for 12 months in French oak, 30% new. The nose is a little closed and needs coaxing at this stage to reveal complex notes of smoky bacon and loam followed by licorice, red plums, crushed blackberries, peach blossoms and rose petals. Crisp acidity, medium level of very fine tannins and layers of savory and dark berry flavors. Very long finish. Drink 2014 to 2024.
