"Deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Shiraz / Viognier offers pronounced black currants, blackberries and licorice notes with underlying tar, earth and burnt tire hints. Medium to full-bodied, it packs in the black fruit and anise flavors with a great backbone of lively acid and soft tannins, finishing long."

"Viognier seems to amp up the already ample texture of this shiraz, packed with sour cherry and bright plum flavor. It’s peppery and warm, a high-toned red to pour with sweet barbecued meats."

" 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.
