The stunning 2010 vintage motivated this inaugural White Label Shiraz Viognier release. Cooler vintage conditions guaranteed slow ripening and distinctive varietal character. We selected Shiraz from our “Prisoner of War” and “Bellevue” vineyards, plus Viognier from our “Homestead” block.

The bright purple-crimson colour is no surprise, nor is the top-gold medal in its class at the Adelaide Wine Show '12; it has a bright display of spicy red and black fruits on both is bouquet and medium-bodied palate, supported by silky tannins on the long finish.
