Serrat Shiraz Viognier 2023

This wine is from the Shiraz block planted in 2003 with Viognier from the original 2001 plantings. There are two clones in the block,  Best’s Old Block sourced from the original plantings at Best’s Great Western planted in 1868 and clone 1654, a Barossa selection. The Viognier is from cuttings at Yarra Yering, that l cut personally in 2000, Dr Carodus told me he had personally taken them from Chateau Grillet in Condrieu in the 60’s. Highly illegal at the time and even more so now.

This is another ripping Shiraz Viognier from us, following on from 22, it has loads of black and darker red fruits and a violet fragrance and spicy note that is so alluring.  The fruit intensity is remarkable coupled with the silkiest of tannins. It’s just loaded with fruit and florals and complex Asian spices.
