    Winemaker's Notes:

    When blending Shiraz and Viognier it is beneficial to co-ferment the grapes, as opposed to blending the finished wine which generally tends to have a flavor diluting effect. Co-fermented grapes have a positive impact, as the use of Viognier improves color, softens and elaborates the tannin and gives a slight fragrant lift to the wine. Anthony de Jager

    Sweet oak aromas, with leather and spiciness. Ripe mulberries and herbal fragrances with good follow through of fruit from the nose. Full, ripe finish balanced by good acidity and structured tannin. Will develop further with time in the bottle.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright, full ruby-red. Blackberry, licorice and smoke on the nose. Juicy, suave and light on its feet, with lovely violet lift to the flavors of blackberry, wild herbs, licorice, pepper and charcoal. Shows more energy and a lighter touch than this producer's current Goatfather and Goats in Villages releases. The violet quality carries through to the lively, persistent finish.
