    Winemaker's Notes:

    With 2008 being the sixth vintage of this cleverly crafted Shiraz Viognier blend, The Chook has gained fans from all across the world including here, in Australia.

    The 2008 vintage again provided excellent fruit. The seamless integration of Shiraz co-fermented with Viognier, generates a seductive nose of apricots, spice and ripe berries. The palate is smooth and full of rich flavour, perfect for a long lingering finish of delightfully soft Shiraz fruit, but not without the punch.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Glass-staining ruby. Ripe aromas of black raspberry, licorice and a touch of vanilla. Generous and open, with a spicy quality to the sweet flavors of raspberry, cherry and candied violet. This delivers a lot of mid-palate sweetness and very good finishing clarity and spiciness.
