Ravensworth Shiraz/Viognier 2016
3 July - 7 July
"Beautiful, delicious wine this. Silken texture, tightly wound but with a give of mouthwatering fruit flavour and incredible, harem-like perfume of pot pourri, fangipani, red fruits, incense and garam masala spice. That texture, whoa, Canberra District’s greatest ally when shiraz (with or without viognier) is on song – sleek, sheathed in finest lacy tannins, long and so fine. It’s joyous in fruit expression but shows savoury, spicy detail and finishes with a floral, pretty mouth perfume that lingers. So good.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
