Shiraz Viognier 2019

$55.00 inc. GST

Beautiful lavender and cedar aromas complimented by a silky palate of juicy plums, cherries, black pepper and a lingering finish with a soft tannic grip.

Vintage notes
The 2018/19 vintage was characterised by hot and dry conditions which led to minimal disease and fantastic grape quality. Summer’s extreme heatwaves placed some stress on the vines but frequent thunderstorms increased soil moisture and thankfully the storms did not bring any hail to damage the fruit. Cool nights in February gave the vines some rest from the heat and slowed down ripening.

A 2 day cold soak prior to fermentation and the inclusion of 30% whole bunches in the ferment ensured maximum colour and flavour extraction. Co-fermented with 3% viognier (also grown at the Vintner’s vineyard). The wine was plunged daily by hand to extract maximum flavour and colour from the skins. The grapes were pressed in our stainless steel basket press to a mixture of old and new French oak barrels and allowed to mature for 14 months.
