Bright and energetic on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that deepen on the back half.

"Deep garnet purple colored, the 2014 The Chook Shiraz / Viognier is scented of crushed black cherries, wild blueberries, dried herbs, tar and chocolate box with a floral / red rose lift. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with youthful black fruits and a peppery edge, finishing with good length and freshness."


" The Chook Shiraz Viognier is sourced from the premium grape growing region of McLaren Vale 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.

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.
