The Black Chook Shiraz/Viognier 2009, South Australia
Community Reviews (4)
An intense yet very tasty blend of Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne (VMR). Tropical fruit aromas and orange rind combine with a mix of citrus flavour, smoke, and a subtle bitterness for a very creative and food friendly finish. I keep reaching for another sip!

Deep and black like the chook in the glass, purple rim. Big fruity smoothie on the nose with enticing tangerine and carmelized orange peel. Violets and blackberry aromas are extremely fragrent, followed by roasted cocoa bean. Big, rich and full in the mouth with juicy tannins that leave a griping finish. Blackberry and dried black fruits with a citrussy orange acidity. The viognier adds a beautiful bouquet and citrus aspect, but the massive shiraz is still behind the wheel. Have some chocolate fudge or bison tartare. I'm sure aromatics and tannins will still be align in 2018. Tasted Sept '11
