Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple in color. The fragrant nose displays aromas of lifted perfume characters from the Viognier combined with subtle dark berry fruit and a hint of spice and pepper. The palate is elegant and finely balanced displaying dense berry fruit, overtones of spice and finishing with some fine powdery tannins.

A classic partner to wood fired pizza, rack of lamb or barbequed grilled steak.

About Four Sisters:

Four Sisters is the creation of Trevor Mast, owner and winemaker at Mount Langi Ghiran, world famous for its Langi Shiraz. One year his four daughters created the wine label design as a birthday surprise. Produced with the help of the eldest daughter Daliah, a graphic designer, the label depicts each one of the sisters – from the left they are Sophie, Anja, Daliah and Ineke.

Delighted with the label mock up and his daughters' plans for a wine aptly named Four Sisters, Trevor initially crafted a small production wine from the vineyard growing behind the family home. However, with the positive response from all who tried the wine and heard the original story behind it, Four Sisters is now a successful brand with a range of four classic Australian varieties.
