Shiraz Viognier Victoria
The radiant Rhône Valley cépage of Viognier with Shiraz, surprising to find an Australian version carrying it's own signature style, flavour profile and complexity. Terra Felix have claimed prestigious awards at the Decanter International Wine Awards, Australian Small Winemakers Show and Royal Melbourne. Exhibiting deep colour and intense flavour, co-fermentations with Viognier draw out additional spice, perfume and plum from the Shiraz.
Shiraz and Viognier, the modern Australian classic, Terra Felix can construct a complex palate of rare integration. A collation of parcels from the finest vineyards are essential, all harvested at optimal ripeness. Crops are kept to levels which can sustain grapes with a concentration and intensity flavour. The excellent growing conditions lead to even flowering and a good fruit set. Shiraz must exhibit deep colour and fine tannin development, Viognier vines are nurtured to yield berries with attractive perfumes. A term of maturation in the finest American oak adds a delightful complexity to the wine, infusing moreish vanillin characters, integration, persistence and length.
Vibrant crimson with plum hues. Deliciously fragrant with spice and floral notes. Bouquet combines the spice and pepper of Shiraz with the apricot of Viognier and vanilla of American oak. Assertively Viognier, with layers of apricot and strawberry, spiced and peppery, black and red berries are lifted by spring blossoms and fragrant oak.
