Natalie's Score: 91/100

A big honkin' Shiraz with a warm embrace of dark red fruit. When you bang for your buck, go straight to the Aussie aisle of your liquor store. There’s 6% of the Viognier grape in this blend to give the wine a lovely lift and brightness on the mid-palate. The wine was also aged in 20% new oak. A sweet blackcurrant nose with notes of pepper, violets and plump plums on the follow-up. This multi-textured wine is a superb value. Perfect for casual weeknight meals at home or potluck get-togethers.

Shiraz Viognier food pairings: Tandoori flavored dishes, roast goose, tongue, parmesan cheese, grilled vegetables.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I drank a lot of this wine in Nova Scotia. Seemingly every vintage is exquisite. This wine goes Cote-Rotie style with a dash of Viognier to enhance the Shiraz characteristics. Lovely flowers (violents), lavender, purple plum, blackberries, and a touch of spice on the finish. I'm 91 on this. (ottawawinejournal.com)
