2017 SHIRAZ VIOGNIER
This is the first Shiraz Viognier to ever be released at Ofw. Consisting of 3.6% Viognier doesn’t sound like a lot, but it has given a real aromatic lift to the wine. The aromas and palate revolve around confectionary and ripe cherries. To create a soft and smooth style, the two barrels used in this blend were 4th fill, which imparted limited oak flavours and allowed the fruit flavours shine. Crafted to be enjoyed as a younger style.

Palate: A generous mid pallet of red fruits, ripe cherries and spice.
