McGuigan Discover Shiraz Viognier

McGuigan Discover Shiraz Viognier

  • Region: Langhorne Creek, South Australia.

  • Colour: Crimson with purple tints.

  • Aroma: Upfront dark berry fruit aroma of the shiraz with a floral lift from the viognier and an underlying smoky oak character.

  • Palate: A soft medium weight wine with a juicy berry flavour and a background vanilla flavour. The viognier adds not only a floral dimension, but also results in liveliness to the palate with a silky soft finish that slides down the throat easily.

  • Food: This is the perfect wine for the Australian lifestyle; going particularly well with BBQ meats, pizza, lamb o tomato based pasta.

  • Notes: Originally developed in the Rhone Valley in France, the shiraz viognier blend has a softer feel than a full-bodied shiraz.

    The fruit for this wine was co-fermented to ensure maximum extraction of floral notes from the skins of the viognier. The ferment was kept at between 18 and 22 degrees to retain these varietal characters. Once the wine had finished primary and malo-lactic fermentation it was matured in French and American oak for 12 months before being filtered and bottled.

  • Tech: Alc 13.0%
