Shiraz Viognier 1993
Very ripe Pinot Noir (14.0 Be) and a small amount of Viognier were again added to the Shiraz. The Pinot component and a third of the Shiraz were fermented as whole bunches and foot-trod.
The rest of the Shiraz was crushed and destemmed. Both lots finished fermentation in French and American barrels.
No fining or filtration was used and the wine was bottled in September 1994.
The 1993 had a particularly good run on the show circuit winning two gold and four silver medals. It also attracted a five star rating in James Halliday's Pocket Companion to Australian and New Zealand Wine.

Some argue this is Australia's greatest red wine, it is certainly one of the greatest Shirazs
