Overview

Made in a Pinot Grigio style, grapes are selected when flavour is optimal and natural acidity remains high. This parcel was harvested in the cool of the evening and immediately crushed at the winery to minimise colour pick up from the pink grape skins. Juice was cold settled then racked with light solids for fermentation. Post ferment the wine was lees stirred in tank to encourage mouthfeel and complexity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Utilising premium fruit from eminent wine regions in South Australia, The Black Chook struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Since first vintage in 2003, The Black Chook Shiraz has scored an uninterrupted run of 90+ points, internationally recognised reviews and enjoys great success in Australia, Canada and USA.

Careful vineyard selection teamed with exceptional winemaking and an emphasis on consistent varietal expression hatches wines with approachability, generosity and character that really are something to cluck about.

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!
