Shiraz Viognier 2007
A distinctive medium-bodied wine that displays rich plum fruit flavours with a touch of spice and a fine persistent finish.Download Full Winemaker Note
On release, the wine is a medium deep red with purple hues.
This wine has an intense aroma of lifted spice and dark blood plums along with subtle apricot character. Underlying aromas of vanilla, and cherry’s dipped in dark chocolate add to the complexity of the aroma.
The wine is medium bodied and quite juicy in texture. It has a delicacy and displays sweet, concentrated fruit flavours of juicy plums and blackberry, along with subtle spicy apricot. This is a well integrated and balanced wine with an enjoyable persistence to the finish.
The wine is crafted for immediate enjoyment but will also cellar in ideal conditions up to 2011.

World's greatest shiraz challenge IV
Nice toasty mocha nose and rich chocolaty/plum flavours. Quite velvety and sillky in the mouth.

4 of the Best
Fabulous magenta black colour and oozes bright berry fruit and violet aromas. In the mouth it is soft, warming and mellow with saucy, plummy notes and hints of dark chocolate to finish. Dangerously easy to drink - and easy on the wallet.

Go on, be a devil and pop one in the fridge
Everything you expect from this style nowadays with soft ripe plummy fruit and a gentle waft of sweeter spices, almost perfumed in the glass, nicely weighted and balanced in the mouth as well. It's attractive, soft and seems perfectly suited to smoked meats and ripe white cheeses on the table when it's nibble and party time.

Wine of the Week
An attractive, easy-drinking red from the largest wine estate in the Clare Valley. It's an intensely coloured drop with aromas of raspberries and stone fruits, with floral touches and a thread of sweet oak. In the mouth it's a smooth, medium-bodied red of appealing softness and succulence. It slips down with just a light touch of tannin for structure. A true crowd-pleaser.
Lindsay Saunders, Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin, January 2011
Aside from this being a lovely drop - medium bodied with plums and spice on the palate - you can crack one of these safe in the knowledge that it did no harm to the planet - the whole process from vine to bottle is certified 100 per cent carbon neutral. Nice.
