"Proudly, Luton has grown from a small boutique agency into one of the most successful privately owned agencies in Canberra. We are committed to the community who support us and we actively support our local community through a broad-ranging community service program. This is led by our flagship event called the Luton Charity Ball which raises money for selected charities each year. Incredibly, in 2017 our annual Charity Ball raised over $220,000 for Hartley Lifecare, Project Independence and Karinya House plus Lifeline, Menslink and OzHelp, and over the past five years we have contributed over $1,000,000 to local charities and communities within Canberra. We believe in the Canberra community and the power of the people within it.

This year Luton Properties are supporting the same three heroic local charities as 2017, Hartley Lifecare, Project Independence and Karinya House.

‘Homes of Hope’ represents the commitment and dedication that these charities have to providing much needed housing for the less fortunate within the Canberra Community. The funds raised at this year’s ball will contribute towards further housing & support services that the charities require to continue their great work.

Item Details:

"This is a very rare offering of a Magnum of the 2015 Clonakillla Shiraz Viognier. The Shiraz Viognier is our flagship, a careful selection of the best of the Shiraz Viognier parcels we craft from our Murrumbateman vineyards. As seasons go, I’m not sure you can get better conditions than we had in 2015.

There was higher than average rainfall in December and January. Enough to make us a little nervous at the time and adding focus to our efforts to have our spray programs in good order. By late January things warmed and dried and the miracle began to unfold: Day after day of mid to high 20s, cool nights, light breezes, a steady, warm glow in the vineyard with no pressure from excessive heat, rain or wind. Ripening proceeded like a dream.

The Shiraz and Viognier grapes were picked in immaculate condition and we edged up the level of whole bunches in the ferments from 22% to 30%. As ever, all parcels were natural yeast ferments. 18 – 21 days on skins and twelve months in one third new French barriques from Taransaud, Francois Freres, Mercurey and Sirugue. 5% co-fermented Viognier.

There is more of everything in the 2015. Intensely aromatic with a mysterious energy pulsing through the palate. Insistent and persistent. A grand cru if ever we have made one. The wine will cellar for many years.
