Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier 2008

From viticultural obscurity outside of Canberra, Clonakilla has quickly turned into one of Australia's icon wine producers, and their shiraz viognier has become one of Australia's leading wines.

I recently tasted the 2008 shiraz viognier in a blind line up. It had a distinctive aroma of apricots and rather young, fresh fruit. The palate had notes of plums, with good length and peppery overtones. It improved, showing greater depth, the longer it sat on the table. An excellent wine.  90 points.
