The Regions

The Black Chook Shiraz Viognier is sourced from the premium grape growing regions of McLaren Vale and Padthaway in South Australia. Both regions have very consistent climates which produce some of the best Shiraz in the country and work together harmoniously in the final blend. 

Winemaking

The shiraz grapes are co-fermented with a small amount of viognier skins which adds a vibrant perfumed aroma and at the same time intensifies the deep rich colour and supple tannins. Each batch was matured separately and oak is selected to best suit and express the nuances of each vineyard block. Wine was blended after 9 months maturation.

The Wine

The nose is vibrant and lifted with red cherry and plum fruit and hints of licquorice and vanilla spice. Generously loaded with dark fruits, the palate is balanced by fine, supple tannins and sweet spice. A soft, round shiraz with a satisfying fruit length.
