2015 Shiraz Viognier

38.00

In recent years, Vinea Marson has participated in a series of Shiraz benchmarking tastings with other Heathcote wineries. What is most striking is the distinctive flavour profiles different parts of the region are developing, backed up by sensory and scientific profile evaluations in a recent Australian Wine Research Institute study. We’ve noticed that the eastern slope of the Mount Camel Range, where our estate vineyards sit, is typified by a distinctive red berry flavour and aroma profile.

And our 2015 Shiraz Viognier is no exception. Dark ruby in colour, with a nose of raspberry and cherry aromas and a hint of blackberry, the juicy fruit characters and fresh acidity similarly dominate on the palate. A lick of vanilla and sweet spice are evident alongside a hint of white pepper, followed by soft yet firm tannins. Good length and a long finish make this elegant wine a good accompaniment for steak frites and roasted meats.

‘Rich, meaty and textural; briary dark plums, blackberries, raisins and cassis with firm, gravelly tannins. Spicy and earthy, with undertones of roasting tray juices.’
