94 Points Robert Parker

Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Viognier is scented of fresh red and black plums, wild blueberries and nuances of violets, pepper, cloves and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with seductive, velvety textured fruit before finishing long and layered. Drink it now to 2024+.

98 Points James Halliday

Estate-grown, and co-fermented with 5% viognier. This is the iron fist in the velvet glove, the bouquet of glorious fragrance, the medium-bodied palate silky and prodigiously long; spicy red fruits dance around darker fruits, and the fine tannins have an altogether different feel to those of the other two '13 shirazs. Drink to 2032.

98 Points James Halliday

Some young wines take hours to declare their full greatness, churning and evolving for some time before finding themselves. Others possess such an effortless confidence and elegant balance that their full calibre is apparent in seconds. Even months before its October release, 2013 declares itself as one of the great Clonakillas, thanks to a season of warmer days and cooler nights than average and rains exactly when they were needed. The result is gloriously exotic, yet at every moment distinguished, effortless and refined, assembled with impeccable precision engineering, with every element in intricate balance. Great depth of pepper, rose bud, exotic spice, dried herbs and black fruits of all kinds are set in place by a very finely textured, mouth filling underlay of impeccably knit, silky tannins. The finish is epic, seamless and enduring. 5% cofermented viognier. Drink 2023 - 2033.
