The Black Chook Shiraz/Viognier the Black Chook 2009
This shows the vivid purple colour so typical of this blend (the addition of viognier leads to better colour extraction from the shiraz) and is full of blackberry and chocolate flavour from the shiraz while the viognier adds fruit-cake characters of dried fruit, ginger and cinnamon spice.

beautiful aroma of violets and honeysuckle. notes of minerality. the grenache really softens the shraz! a tasty, australian treat! great with cheeses too.
External Reviews for The Black Chook Shiraz/Viognier the Black Chook
Glass-staining purple. Sexy, Rhone-like aromas of blackcurrant, cherry, violet and tobacco, with a strong peppery quality that becomes more intense with air. Juicy, palate-staining dark berry flavors show impressive freshness, with tangy acidity providing lift. Finishes with very good cut and persistent spiciness. This wine was raised in French and American oak, one-third new.
