97 Points Robert Parker
Medium garnet in color and still quite youthful on the nose with plenty of black cherry and blackberry preserves aromas, anise and dark chocolate plus a whiff of lavender, the 2004 Shiraz Viognier has tons of sweet fruit in the mouth filled out by plenty of spicy layers and packed into a very pure, elegant package shaped by very fine, medium level tannins. It finishes wonderfully balanced and long. Drink it now to 2020+.

Spotlessly clean, lifted black cherry/blackberry and spice aromas, together with the unmistakable tang of Viognier; silky soft tannins, very good balance and length. Drink to 2015.

Sexy, exotic, and open-knit with a savory, expansive mouthfeel is the Burgundian-like 2004 Shiraz/Viognier. Soft, supple, and seductive, it reveals honeyed notes in the nose along with blackberry, cassis, and floral characteristics. This finesse-filled, hedonistically as well as intellectually satisfying Australian red should be drunk over the next 5-6 years. Distinctive, singularly-styled wines displaying abundant minerality along with striking aromatics, and nicely delineated, powerful but elegant flavors are the rule of thumb at this winery.Source: Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) October, 2005 by Robert Parker
