Shiraz Viognier 1995
Cool and at times wet late summer and autumn with fruit harvested early to mid-April. The Viognier in its tenth year finally yielded a decent crop.
80% Shiraz, 10% Pinot Noir and 10% Viognier.
Pinot component and a third of the Shiraz were fermented as whole bunches.
The wine finished fermentation and was matured in new and second use French oak (Seguin Moreau and Francois Freres – Allier and Troncais) together with some old American oak.
The wine was neither fined nor filtered before bottling in April 1996.
