Shiraz Viognier

2019 Shiraz Viognier

Canberra District, NSW

A legendary Canberra district blend, we've produced this is our own unique style with cold skin maceration providing robust colours and flavours complimented by maturation in French oak.

From $55.00 per bottle

    Description

    Made from our estate grown vines this wine is made by co-fermenting hand-picked Shiraz with 3% Viognier grapes. The juice and skins are soaked together for two days at around 4 degrees prior to fermentation and 30% whole bunches are included in the ferment to ensure maximum colour and complex flavour extraction. The wine is plunged daily by hand to extract further colour and flavour from the skins. Maturation in a mixture of old and new French oak barrels for 14 months softens the tannins and integrates the oak and fruit. The resulting wine is luxurious and elegant with a silky mouthfeel, flavours of black pepper, stewed plums and cherries and a lingering soft finish.
