Natalie's Score: 91/100

Chook refers to the roosters that strut their stuff on the winery property. The Black Chook is a deep, dark and delicious Shiraz with a splash of Viognier added to give this wine a floral lift. Look for ripe dark plum, black cherry, currant, sweet cake spice, vanilla and smoky flavours on the palate from this juicy red. Pair with grilled meats from the Barbie.

Shiraz Viognier food pairings: fried chicken in creamy gravy, rosemary lamb, pepper steak.

Reviews and Ratings

A Shiraz Viognier wine blend from the cooler-climate McLaren Vale, Padthaway wine region in South Australia and a consistent crowd pleaser, fragrant with earthy and white florals on the nose. A big, full-bodied mostly Shiraz (with a splash of Viognier added), with dark fruit, savoury herb and peppery spice flavours on the palate. Good acidity for food. Pair it with a juicy grilled hanger steak. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
