98 Points - 2017 Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier & MW Wines Raids the Cellar!

by Hugh French | Oct 04, 2018



This week we welcome the release of the iconic Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier. The 2017 vintage is stunning as the below reviews will attest. Always super delicious on release, it's one of those great wines that can be enjoyed young but really does benefit from time in the bottle. If you don't have any Clonakilla in your cellar, you certainly should!

It's available now at our special offer prices for the next 7 days only. To place your order return the attached form, by email, by fax on 03 9419 6970 or call us on 03 9419 6990.







2017 Shiraz Viognier - Add to Cart
Usually $120 - Now $108

One of the greatest vintages of this wine. It has a super complex array of white and black peppers, hard brown spices, leaves, flowers and fresh wet earth, as well as graphite-like dark stony notes...The real soul of this wine shines through in this perfectly simpatico vintage.
98 points – Nick Stock

Australian Grand Cru Shiraz. It has both lightness and power... It’s a wine of shadows and a wine of light; of shadow and of joy. Pour a glass and behold its beauty, for it is rich in that.
96 points - Campbell Mattinson

A gloriously fragrant and elegant Clonakilla is the blessing of a classic cool year, It's set to go down as a long-lived Clonakilla.

Don't forget we have our first Raid The Cellar tasting coming up on the 27th of October which promises to be our biggest event of the year. We have some amazing wines in our cellar and figured it's high time we opened some great back vintage ones to share with our customers. There will be 50 great wines open with iconic producers represented from all over both old and new worlds.

These are wines you generally can't find, let alone taste so get a crew together, come along and enjoy a great day with us. There are only 50 tickets available and they're selling quickly so don't miss your chance to try aged Bordeaux, Burgundy, Grange, German Riesling and many others!
