It’s time to deck the halls, jingle the bells, and get ready for Santa Claus to come to town! Getting together with friends and family for the holidays can be hectic and at some point, you may just need to sit down with a glass of wine as red as Santa’s sleigh. The Black Chook (a chook is Australian for chicken) Shiraz Viognier is exploding with flavour and is the perfect partner for your holiday dinner this weekend.


Tasting Notes:  This powerful wine boasts a vibrant nose with notes of red cherry and blackcurrant with hints of vanilla spice and liquorice. The palate has fine, supple tannins that are balanced with potent dark fruit flavours and a floral twist from the Viognier. The finish is satisfying with soft, elegant fruit flavours.

Enjoy With:  A holiday dinner with friends and family.

Style:  Full-bodied and smooth red wine.

Terroir/Region:  The Black Chook Shiraz Viognier comes from the McLaren Vale and Padthaway regions of South Australia.

Rich, diverse soil and climate in the Padthaway region yields fruit which adds complexity to the consistently high quality Black Chook.
