"Distinctive and lively, with fresh-cracked black pepper, violet and dried apricot notes that jump out of the glass, balancing well with the blueberry and blackberry flavors at the core. Juicy, showing plenty of energy on the finish. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2030.—"

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Descendant Shiraz Viognier seems to show its Viognier component, with notable peach blossom notes over the baked blackberries and stewed plums aromas and touches of dried herbs and chocolate box. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is relatively gripping, with chewy tannins supporting the straightforward flavors, finishing with an herbal lift."

VINEYARD: This single vineyard wine, located next to the winery block on Roennfeldt Road, was planted in 1994 with cuttings off old RunRig vineyards - some of the oldest genetic material in Australia. Farmed on deep red clay soils.

FERMENTATION: Shiraz is crushed straight on top of Viognier, which has been lightly pressed for RunRig.

AGING: The blend of fruit is then co-fermented and later the wine is matured for 18 months in barrels that had been previously used for RunRig.
