Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a full cherry red in colour with purple hues. The nose displays generous floral notes from Viognier, combined with dark fruits, black cherries and red spices of the Shiraz. The palate is silky smooth, soft and supple, yet complex. Exotic spices, musk, dark chocolate and cherry flavours combine with soft layered tannins, producing a stylish wine.

"The outstanding 2004 Shiraz/Viognier (95% and 5% respectively) offers an exotic, flamboyant nose of blackberries and flowers along with wonderful intensity, richness, fruit, and glycerin. Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years." - The Wine Advocate"
