The Chook Shiraz/Viognier South Australia 2016

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The Chook Shiraz Viognier is sourced from the premium grape growing region of McLaren Vale in South Australia. The seamless integration of Shiraz co-fermented with Viognier, generates a seductive nose of apricots, spice and ripe berries. The palate is smooth and full of rich flavor, perfect for a long lingering finish of delightfully soft Shiraz fruit, but not without the punch. - Winery Grapes: 96% Shiraz 4% Viognier Yields: 2-4 tons/acre Aging: 8 months in a combination of tank and seasoned French oak Vintage: Early descriptions of the 2013 vintage proclaim it a solid one with a broad range of well-made and diverse wines. Alc/Vol: 14.5%

From its first production of 141 cases of 1995 Shiraz, Penny's Hill has established a fine reputation for outstanding vineyards from which acclaimed wines have emerged. Very much a part of the recent McLaren Vale landscape, the Penny's Hill story commenced over twenty years ago. From its beginnings on bare grazing land upon which cows and sheep had long trod, the brand is now reflected in some of the very best quality vineyards in the region, fine full-bodied wines which are sold to loyal and appreciative wine lovers not only locally but in all discerning export markets, and a cellar door and restaurant complex recognised nationally for its excellence of food and service, for its iconic location and for its direct links to the farming traditions of the greater region. Welcome to Penny's Hill and its unique story. Read less
