2 x Johnny Q Shiraz Viognier 2015 (Australia)

AWARDED DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL: China Wine & Spirit Awards

"A co-fermented 95/5% blend, all from Coonawarra; a portion was oak-matured, the remainder in tank. Notwithstanding this, the price is a mystery given its origin, the co-fermentation and, above all else, its quality. What it lacks in finesse it more than makes up in flavour." Star Rated showing extremely good value for money" James Halliday

This is a belend of 95% Shiraz, 5% Viognier showcases intense youthful fresh ripe berry flavours with spice and pepper fruits with some complexity. This wine is dense with ripe mulberry fruit flavours, balanced by spicy oak and ripe succulent tannins. 

Harvested during March and April of 2014 from carefully selected premium vineyards, where the different grapes were picked at the following sugar levels to produce the fruit flavours that are required to make this great wine blend: Shiraz at 14.0 Baume, providing spice and pepper & the Viognier at 13.0 Baume giving the wine a different dimension and complexity. All of the grapes were picked together and co-fermented (in the same tank) to help integrate all the flavours. A portion of the wine underwent oak until the right balance was achieved. This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to be enjoyed now or will offer added satisfaction after further cellaring.
