Grenache Shiraz Viognier McLaren Clare Adelaide South Australia
The beauty of Black Chook Free Range GSV is just how the Viognier and Grenache can work so well together. Adelaide Hills is known the world over for the magnificence of it's Viognier. The unequivocally cool climate and grey to grey brown loamy sands of low to moderate fertility have also proven idyllic for Grenache. The winemaking team know McLaren Vale very well and retain access to the finest parcels of Shiraz, full flavoured and ripe with juicy acid and balanced tannins.
Bright scarlet colour. A sweet bouquet of roses, brambles and apricot, red currants and violet, complex spices with plum. Medium bodied palate with ripe fruit characters, juicy blackberries and plum supported by firm tannins and supple oak, enhanced by the varietal Shiraz pepper characters and strawberry of Grenache. The refreshing acids and tannin make a great food wine, ideally with bold flavours like smoked eels and anchovy, garlic or proscuito.
