Winemaker's Notes

The Winemaker's Buzz. It takes a lot to get an Australian hot under the collar! Even a billion flies don't seem to bother them- a casual flick of the wrist, the "Aussie Salute", is enough to deal with their infernal buzzing. Although when it comes to winemaking, they're not so relaxed. Saluting the great regions and growers, this blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Viognier is rich, fragrant, and inviting.

The Aussie Salute is a blend of spicy Grenache, succulent Shiraz and a whiff of aromatic Viognier- a feisty combination that works wonders on the palate. Rich, fragrant and inviting, this wine expresses blackberry, plum, currant and black pepper notes.

Made with structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a clean ‘have another glass' finish. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.

I do have a thing for Australian wines, and this one does not disappoint. I read the reviews and then purchased this wine. I have to agree with the other reviewers. This wine is full of fruit immediately and has a very nice smooth finish to it. It also has a great nose. I knew as soon as I smelled this wine I'd fall in love with it. And, look at the price.

I had read several articles about this wine and how it was a good one for the money. I disagree. And I am a fan of Austrialian wines. But not this one. Shoo this one away if offered
