Clonakilla’s secret recipe for success lies within the delicate microclimate it enjoys.

However, it is Clonakilla's iconic Shiraz Viognier that truly commands the spotlight. Drawing its inspiration from the Northern Rhone, this stellar blend is celebrated for its arresting bouquet, sublime texture and robust character. It is, without a doubt, Clonakilla’s pièce de résistance.
