Utilising premium fruit from eminent wine regions in South Australia, The Black Chook struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Careful vineyard selection teamed with exceptional winemaking and an emphasis on consistent varietal expression hatches wines with approachability generosity and character that really are something to cluck about.

THE REGION
The Black Chook Shiraz Viognier is sourced from the premium grape growing regions of McLaren Vale and Padthaway in South Australia.

WINEMAKING
The Shiraz grapes were co-fermented with a small amount of viognier skins which adds a vibrant perfumed aroma, stabilizes the deep, rich colour and gives the wine fine, supple tannins. Each vineyard parcel was vinified and matured separately and oak was selected to best suit and express the nuances of each vineyard block. The final wine was blended after 9 months of oak maturation.

THE WINE
Bright aromas of red cherry, berries and plum fruits with hints of anise and spice. Generously loaded with dark fruits, the palate is balanced by fine, supple tannins and lingering spice notes. A soft, round shiraz with great fruit length, generosity and drinkability
