Rock of Wisdom Shiraz Viognier 2016

Always the more serious proposition within the RoW portfolio to my mind. Dark, earthen, leathery, perhaps a touch pruney. Spice accents sit atop, as if to provide a seasoning to the wine. There's more than a hint of creamy vanilla that gently, with some glass time, emanates from glass. 

At odds to that is a medium bodied palate, at turns minerally-graphite in feel with slick fruit, juicy. A wine at ease and carrying itself with good conviction. 

Interestingly I feel the Viognier shows its hand more toward the back palate. Good wine, again. 91
