Judges Comments:

The practice of adding the white grape, Viognier, to Shiraz started in the Northern Rhone region of France, where it was found to add a floral note to the wine and make the mouthfeel more rounded and soft. This wine shows how well the idea worked and why it was adopted in Australia. Viognier has been added to the Shiraz flavour, creating a dark rich black and blueberry intensity with underlying floral and oak characters. This is our Champion Shiraz and it’s easy to see why.

Pairing Recommendation:

A powerful rich wine that’s perfect with big rich flavours. Try it with burger and ribs, steak, sausages and game dishes. Take to a pot-luck dinner or a BBQ with the neighbours and, of course, wonderful with the Sunday roast.
