As we scratched around for a name for the first Shiraz Viognier, an obviously interested black chook stopped in its unplanned tracks, lingering, as only chooks do, just long enough for the penny to drop. For its trouble, we immortalised that single Black Chook, rationalising that it had come from a small white egg; just as our dark, inky, black Shiraz had been transformed by a tiny amount of fragrant white Viognier.

CHOOK? IT’S AUSTRALIAN FOR CHICKEN!
