Dark red rose. Intensity of plum, black cherry and anise spice, with a hint of French oak. Rich and complex with black fruits dominating the mid palate. Dark chocolate and earthy spices are complemented by super fine grain tannins. Ethereal and elegant with beautiful balance and structure.
96 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"There is slightly less than 2% co-fermented Viognier, but it plays an important role in creating the highly fragrant and expressive bouquet. Yes, it's vintage driven with a riot of red and purple fruits, but the perfect structure and balance goes way beyond normal wines."
97 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Deep, dark, bold red/purple colour; concentrated. The bouquet is dusty, five-spicy and charming, with sweet nutmeg overtones, and a sprinkling of charred oak. The tannins are fine and firm, elegantly-sculpted and the palate is tense, concentrated and very persistent. A classy wine of great elegance and age-worthiness."

"So complex and refined with intense plum and mulberry aromas and flavours, framed in spice, pepper and caramelized, meaty notes. The dusty tannin texture is alluring. Good length, too."
Our flagship Shiraz Viognier. Only made in the very best years, using only the very best parcels of fruit. Our Reserve wines epitomise time, place and effort in the purest of forms. Our very best expression of variety, viticulture, location, season and winemaking.
The 2017 vintage was a 1-in-20 season in the Yarra Valley. Optimal growing conditions, allowed for perfectly balanced vines and beautifully ripened grapes. In these pristine years, spectacular fruit flavours are combined with intensity and power, producing wines of true longevity. Majority of fruit was hand picked from Coldstream and the remaining portion from our premier site. Shiraz and Viognier were co-fermented in open top fermenters. 100% whole berries were cold soaked for 5 days, gently hand plunged twice a day and then pressed to barrel. Matured in French oak barriques for 18 months.
