Shiraz Viognier 2000
After the devastation of the October 1998 frost the vines came back with a vengeance in 2000, giving us good yields of high quality fruit. The weather gave us some anxious moments, but we escaped the extremes of heat and rain suffered by many other wine regions around the country.
Cold and wet through March and April.
Some botrytis in the vineyard meant that careful picking was required. A more ‘European’ vintage perhaps.
The Shiraz was picked between April 17 and April 30.
6% co-fermented Viognier, one third whole bunches 12 months in 30% new wood.
