NOSE: Rhubarb, cloves, hints of vanilla and forest floor fruits, with
complex earthy tones and lovely balanced oak.
PALATE: Rich elegant Shiraz with notes of rich dark chocolate and earthy berries fused with a small percentage of Viognier to create a wonderful sensual Shiraz Viognier. Striking hints of floral orange/apricot notes from the Viognier shine through the Shiraz, bold, yet together very soft and integrated with superior French oak influence.
WINEMAKING COMMENTS: This wine style is created via years of experience in understanding our Vineyards’ native yeast populations over different seasons. We select specific blocks of Shiraz to create a feminine, elegant “Syrah” style with just the right proportion of Viognier in the blend. Using only the native wild yeast creates that extra dimension and complexity in small batch winemaking.
