Score:90

Both shiraz (95%) and viognier (5%) are estate grown, and obviously late picked, as no mention of rack drying. In a sense a contradiction in terms, for viognier normally gives fragrance and elegance to cool-grown grapes. Surprisingly, has achieved some of that here.

Hobbs of Barossa Ranges

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
