Pettavel Southern Emigre Shiraz Viognier

Cracka Review

The 2005 Southern Émigre Shiraz Viognier captures the fragrance of the perfumed Viognier aromas displayed with white pepper spice, ripe red plum and blackberry fruit flavours.

The full bodied palate demonstrates the impact that the addition of Viognier skins has on the tannin structure of a wine, the silky smooth finish adds a degree of accessibility during the wines youth without detracting from the long term cellaring potential of the blend.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Spice, cedar, pine needle and blackberry aromas; a particularly robust style, with lingering tannins.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Very strong Viognier impact on medium-bodied Shiraz; likewise obvious French oak inputs. Love it or hate it.

James Halliday says
Its silky texture sees the wine glide across the tongue unveiling its array of exotic spices and black fruits through to the fine tannins of the finish.
