More information:

Clonakilla is one of the leading estates in Australia, with a mission to create distinctive, hand-crafted wines. They have an enviable reputation for their Shiraz Viognier. Clonakilla means 'meadow of the church' in gaelic and is the name of the founder's grandfather's farm in County Clare, Ireland. In 1971, Dr John Kirk founded Clonakilla vineyard at Murrumbateman, 40 kilometres north of Canberra, after his scientific curiosity led him to question why vines were not being grown in this area.

His research showed that the soil and climate seemed suited to certain varieties. In 1991 Tim Kirk, the fourth of John's six sons, travelled to the Rhone Valley. There he tasted a number of inspirational Shiraz wines including Marcel Guigal's single vineyard blends of Shiraz and the white grape Viognier. Inspired by those wines they began including a small amount of Viognier in the Clonakilla Shiraz as of 1992. Tim took over responsibility for winemaking at the 12 hectare family farm in 1997. Clonakilla now produces about 10,000 cases per year, which sell out year on year.
