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 over the short term.

World's greatest syrah & shiraz challenge VIII
Fragrances of violets and a simple palate; good structure, with firm, drying tannins. Still a baby.

Lisa Perrotti Brown, The Wine Advocate, May 2014
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Eighty Acres Shiraz Viognier displays notes of ripe plums, warm blackberries and blueberry preserves dotted with hints of vanilla, chocolate and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied and loaded with plenty of expressive blue and black fruit flavors in the mouth intermingling with a baking spice undercurrent, it has a medium level of velvety tannins, lively acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2018.
