A combo of Grampians and Pyrenees here. “I added the viognier to the wine because it kind of needed it, a tougher year, the viognier helps freshen it up”, says winemaker Adam Louder. Go you good thing.
Beefy kind of wine but still holds a dedicated freshness and vitality, despite the rich, darker fruits, sense of earthiness, strong lick of dark choc-liquorice. The glossy texture is lovely, a light burr of tannins adds more grunt. It’s not a huge wine, per se, but it is memorable in the way bolder flavour can stain the palate and mind. It’s done well.
