The Shiraz and Viognier were handpicked from the Hobbs Estate vineyard at optimal sugar, tannin and acid ripeness. The grapes were co-fermented in small batches, hand plunged and monitored closely to ensure perfect balance and integration. Once fermentation was finished, the wine was pressed off the skins into new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation. Deep red with a purple hues. Rich, floral notes on the nose and a suggestion of bright red fruits. On the palate, this full- bodied wine is an opulent mix of dark red fruits, mixed berries, and chocolate with a surprising savoury spice. Super fine tannins and a lively hint of floral notes on the finish." - Winemaker Notes 

"Just 130 dozen made of this delicious Rhone style red, Shiraz with a dollop of Viognier. The fruit all hails from the Hobbs own vineyard and the grapes were co-fermented. Maturation was in new French oak. Dark maroon in colour, this is a balanced and yet powerful style with serious concentration. Warm earth, plums, black fruits, spices and bergamot. There is focus, balance and, even with the intensity, a little elegance here. A very long finish with ever-so-fine tannins too. This is one of the very best examples of the Shiraz Viognier blend one will find from this country. Drink for eight to ten years." - 94 Points, Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot
