Luscious and exotic aromas of violet, blueberry and vanilla bean. A medium bodied palate that is framed by flavours of sweet Turkish delight and violets. Soft tannins provide a perfect complement to the dark chocolate finish, showing the synergy between these two varieties

Vinification Notes

The grapes selected for this wine are those which display the most perfumed and aromatic characteristics of Shiraz that complement the fragrance of Viognier. Everything is done to preserve this aroma: cool fermentation, the addition of Viognier (including as many whole berries as possible) and no oak ageing are just some of the processes that go into the making of this wine. These combine to produce a wine that is bright, aromatic and exotic.
