2008 RESERVE SHIRAZ / VIOGNIER
Shiraz 96% Viognier 4%
100 dozen produced
This wine was produced for the belief of the blend. It shows how a small percentage of Viognier can change a wine. Ageing in new French oak 500L puncheons for 24 months helps obtainin oak characters that are softer with more subtle impact. The Viognier adds aromatics, and highlights the plum and Szechwan pepper with perfumed floral tones. The palate is typical of the aromas, plums, pepper with richness and fullness of the little percentage of Viognier added.
