2014 Shiraz Viognier
There are 5 parcels of Shiraz of estate grown fruit in the blend one of which is co-fermented with the Viognier fruit. The final wine, which is 7% Viognier, undergoes 12 months of maturation in the French Oak before bottling.
Growing Region: Frankland River, Western Australia
A mild, dry winter and a spring with ample rain, was followed by a warm, even summer, interspersed with a timely rainfall events. This presented us with early flavour development, providing an intense varietal profile whilst retaining the freshness of the natural acidity.
Vibrant deep crimson with magenta hues.
Jubey black cherry flavours continue on the medium bodied palate with vibrant freshness to the ripe flavours and an even, gravelly tannin structure.
Ready to drink now, although will gain complexity over the next five to eight years with careful cellaring.
