Viognier takes this shiraz out of a simple varietal context and focuses it, instead, on Yarra. It's sleek and earthy, with a soft, cushioned texture that's completely filled out by the richness of the fruit - bright red and shiso-leaf green. The wine has structure and stature without feeling ambitious.

With just 4% of the makeup of this wine being the white variety Viognier co-fermented with its majority partner shiraz, it’s surprising what a lighter, floral, medium-bodied impact it has on the overall expression of this version. Its spice notes are also sweeter and lifted rather than dark and brooding. The result is a delightfully laid-back easy-drinking shiraz.
