2017 Shiraz Viognier
This vineyard is just over the hill from the Mataro block, it’s a funny little site. It’s a gentle east facing block and gets some rad shade action from the gum trees planted on the other side of the road to it. It’s a block that can turn in the blink of an eye so we must keep a close watch on its development throughout the growing season. Tricky as this block is it works so well with the tickle of Viognier. We will keep the wheels turning with this mix as long as Viognier is planted in the Barossa. Funnily enough when we started our venture into the wine world we didn’t intend on adding Viognier to the Shiraz but as luck would have it the day the fruit came in that day in 2013 there was some Viognier floating around next to it. A few quick buckets later and we were off.
