De Bortoli Windy Peak Shiraz Viognier

Expert Reviews

Matthew Jukes & Tyson Stelzer (2007 Vintage) says
With a stunning, baked blueberry muffin nose and a superb, stylish lick of iodine on the palate, this is a dead ringer for a super-smart Crozes- Hermitage, from the Northern Rhône in France, but it costs half the price of a dull one, let alone one of the more serious versions! Windy Pants pushes harder each year to ramp up its fan base and amaze its acolytes and this wine is a presidential performance! If you love crunchy, cool climate Shiraz then this is a must for your cellar. Try to give it until 2009 to polish off some of its youthful exuberance and you will be gobsmacked at the value here.

A delicious and fragrant light-bodied wine, bursting with juicy red fruits, simply demanding to be opened on any pretence and in any company.

Another very good quaffer under the 'Windy Peak' label. It's soft, round and smooth, with dark berry flavours that are well integrated with the oak, almost velvety texture, finishing with a firm grip. Needs a satisfying Slow-cooked Italian dish like osso buco to bring out its best.

Delicate floral aromas lift out the glass and generous sweet fruits fill the mouth and finish with a lovely crispness.

Medium red-purple; fragrant black fruit aromas, then an unexpectedly powerful palate, finishing with strongly built, earthy/grainy tannins.

The De Bortolis are absolutely rocking along at the moment and the Windy Peaks are blowing a breeze of excellence through the winery. Not exactly poetry, but this wine (one of many shiraz viogniers you will find in these pages) is sheer bottled Wordsworth. This has lovely floral aromas, courtesy of the viognier, and then a full-bodied shiraz-style palate. Utterly delicious and great value.
