Hugh Hamilton Jekyll & Hyde Shiraz Viognier 750ml

*This product is delivered ex winery.

If you are a wine geek, you know of ‘co-fermentation’; a process in which two varieties (in this case, red Shiraz and white Viognier) are picked on the same day and blended at the crusher. This produces a result quite different to blending ‘finished’ red and white wines. The tannin and fragrance of the small amount of Viognier are amplified by the process, and the resultant wine is more fragrant and shows greater depth and even-ness of tannin structure than we’d otherwise see. (We swiped the idea from the French.)
95% Shiraz | 5% Viognier

Tasting Notes

Harvest basket perfume – blackberries, raspberries, and pink ladies. Brown sugar plush. Cola, roses, motor oil, molasses, and cardamon pods. The delivery intense – punching out of the glass but dancing on the palate. The textural tannin load gives it presence and length, taming the exuberant fruit, and leading to a lip smack finish.
