There's no doubt Clonakilla, across it's entire range of wines, is a compelling proposition. Canberra's best winery, long-time standout of Australia's best Shiraz Viognier, producer of one of Canberra's best Rieslings and arguably the country's best Viognier.
So yep - they have form!
In 2020 Clonakilla suffered the catastrophe of losing their entire crop to smoke taint, a consequence of severe drought and the worst bushfire season in living memory. Generous friends came to the rescue with clean fruit from regions outside New South Wales.
