Willunga 100 Shiraz Viognier 2013
Gold Medal - NZIWS 2015
Inky purple red, dense right to the crimson-bright rim. A touch of rose petal and a dusting of chocolate infuse the lifted bouquet with the floral notes no doubt from the 5% Viognier. A blockbuster of a red with loads and loads of flavour, it is firm and muscular and absolutely rippling with polish. Dark fruited, savoury and meaty with hints of vanilla, chocolate, coffee bean and chicory, it's more cake spicy than peppery and has a lovely supple mouthfeel as the chocolate coated flavours linger. Truly delicious but definitely needs time to evolve in the cellar as the tannins are quite grippy on the finish. Gold Medal NZIWS 2015.
