"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2011 Shiraz Viognier offers notes of ripe blackberries, cassis and tar with an undercurrent of mocha, raw meat and pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is youthfully fruited and taut with a crisp acid line and low to medium level of grainy tannins, finishing long and peppery. Drink it now to 2016+." ~LPB

"As the bigger sibling of Woop Woop, The Chook once again represents a collaboration between Ben Riggs the wine maker at Penny’s Hill, and Tony Parkinson, proprietor of Penny’s Hill. The Chook is sourced from McLaren Vale, known for it’s consistent, Mediterranean-type climate and Langhorne Creek which characteristically produces Shiraz that is spicy, flavorful and elegant.

The Chook Shiraz Viognier is sourced from the premium grape growing regions of McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek in South Australia. The seamless integration of Shiraz co-fermented with Viognier, generates a seductive nose of apricots, spice and ripe berries. The palate is smooth and full of rich flavor, perfect for a long lingering finish of delightfully soft Shiraz fruit, but not without the punch." ~ Winery notes
