Rich nutty, chocolate and toffee aroma, fresh red fruit. Really great body, balanced with a delicious finish



Tasting Notes:

Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues. Aroma: Perfumed Satsuma plum and mulberry jam, mingle with hints of peach, apricot, sweet spice and white pepper. Palate: Rich, soft and fruitful nectar flows over the tongue with youthful tannins balancing the sweet fruit. The finish is long and spicy extending into a peachy, Viognier conclusion.

Fruit treatment after harvest: Lighly pressed Viognier skins introduced to Shiraz ferment. Batch Handling: A concentrated Shiraz Viognier parcel is produced with individual Shiraz vineyards blended in later. Time on skins: 7 days with twice daily pump-overs
