The first release of this wine shows terrific structure and enticing savoury fruit. A fabulous introduction to our passion for co-fermenting Shiraz and Viognier.

Light, bright hue; the bouquet is highly fragrant, clearly a function of the viognier; the medium-bodied palate is full to the brim with vibrant black and red cherry fruit, leaving just enough space for the French oak and fine-grained tannins to add their contribution.

Winery Tasting Notes
Black pepper and clove spice. Rich Black Forrest cake combining fruit and dark chocolate.
Full bodied but with feminine beauty. A lovely mix of liquorice all spice and exotic dark plums. Firm but supple tannins give this wine life and longevity.

winemaker comments The addition of 5% Viognier co-fermentation really fills in the middle palate giving structure. Careful oak handling ensured balance and wonderful complexity.
