Winemaker's Notes

The Black Chook is sourced from two of the best known wine growing regions in South Australia, namely McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. McLaren Vale is known for it's consistent, Mediterranean-type climate and Langhorne Creek characteristically produces Shiraz that is spicy, flavorful and elegant.

Co-fermenting small amounts of Viognier skins with Shiraz adds a wonderful apricot perfume, at the same time as intensifying the deep rich color and velvety mouthfeel of the wine.
