Goundrey G Shiraz Viognier

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Shiraz plus Viognier equals heaven in this black, fruit-filled style that shows beautiful spicy, elegant fruit. From a great year it shows how the west is king of the reds.

Winemaker's Notes

A brilliant rich red with purple tints, this wine displays an aromatic nose of raspberry, blackberry and lifted spice. The combination of the red and white grape varieties from the Great Southern region has produced a wine of intense berry fruit flavour complemented by a balanced palate and a lingering finish. Best enjoyed while youthful or with up to 5 years of careful cellaring.

Goundrey G Shiraz Viognier

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Vibrant and flowery on the nose, with some spicy notes. Good cool climate palate with a healthy dollop of mouth-coating tannins.

Peter Forrestal (2005 Vintage) says
As I write, the team at Houghton is reeling from the news that many of the vineyards that they have nurtured throughout the state and the winery at Goundrey will be sold. While there won't be much disappointment at the loss of the winery, the viticultural team has done some brilliant work on the Goundrey vineyards. This is a terrific example of what they have achieved: a well-priced, cool-climate shiraz that, at last, fulfils the promise that Goundrey has shown for so long. Its juicy- even succulent- rich, ripe and concentrated dark plummy fruits are neatly integrated with classy oak. Approachable.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
A bold wine with loads of dark berries, chocolate and spices - very intense and concentrated. Lush and beautifully balanced palate; very well structured with flavours of sweet currants and cola.
