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 which adds a vibrant perfumed aroma, stabilizes the deep, rich colour and gives the wine fine, supple tannins. Each vineyard parcel was vinified and matured separately and oak was selected to best suit and express the nuances of each vineyard block. The final wine was blended after 12 months of oak maturation. 

The Wine

Bright aromas of red cherry, berries and plum fruits with hints of licorice, mocha and spice. Generously loaded with dark fruits, the palate is balanced by fine, supple tannins and and lingering spice notes. A soft, round shiraz with great fruit length, generosity and drinkability.
